The 5th DX-midAMerica Get-Together (and the first under that name in nearly 15 years) will be held on Saturday, September 14th starting at 1:00 p.m. Central Time. The gathering will take place at the Ramada Inn located at 902 West Killarney Street, just off North Lincoln Avenue, one-half block south of I-74 exit #183 in Urbana, IL. Snacks and beverages (the liquid variety!) will be provided. Even though the GTG officially begins at 1:00 and lasts on into the evening, I will be arriving in Urbana on Friday evening, so any early birds are welcome to drop by and visit. Feel free to bring your radios and/or QSLs. No station tour is planned as of now, but that could always change (when I hosted a GTG in Davenport, Iowa in October 1992, we were treated to a nice -- and impromptu -- tour of WOC-1420). If you choose to stay overnight, reservations can be made with the Ramada at 217-328-4400.
Even though the main target demographic of this event is comprised of Midwestern DXers, anyone, anywhere can feel free to attend, and this is an all-band (MW, LW, FM/TV) gathering. If you have any further questions about the get-together itself, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com. And by all means, check out the DX-midAMerica webpage (expertly maintained by South Milwaukee's John Rieger, editor of the original Hot Tips & Targets magazine that was published in the 1980s!) at:
Hope to see you on Sept. 14th!
