Banquet Speaker
August 6 - 8, 2004, Trenton NJ
Celebrating The SETI League's Tenth Year of Service

The SETI League and the 11th International Ham Radio Moonbounce Conference are pleased to announce that they have scheduled Prof. Joseph Taylor, K1JT as featured speaker at their joint Banquet on 7 August 2004. Dr. Taylor, Professor of Physics and former Dean of Faculty at Princeton University, shared the 1993 Nobel Prize in Physics with his former student Russell Hulse, for gravitational research stemming from their earlier discovery at the Arecibo Observatory of the first binary pulsar.

Joe Taylor is both a world-class radio astronomer and a lifelong radio amateur, well known for his development of the WSJT and JT-44 digital communications modes being used for moonbounce, meteor scatter and tropo-scatter contacts worldwide. Using his own software and a modest station, he regularly places well in ARRL VHF/UHF and Moonbounce Contests. He routinely acknowledges the prominent role which his amateur radio background has played in his professional and academic success, and can be expected to touch on the important contributions still to be made by dedicated amateurs in the fields of radio astronomy and SETI.

The SETICon04 banquet is sure to be a sellout, and tickets will likely not be available at the door. You are encouraged to pre-register for this year's banquet by 30 June 2004.
