Third Annual Defcon Wi-Fi Shootout Contest

Once again, wifi enthusiasts from around the globe will gather in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 29-31, 2005, to pit their geeky skills against one another in the 3rd Annual Defcon Wifi Shootout Contest.

With last year’s contest winners establishing a new world’s record (certified by the Guinness Book of World Records), this year’s contest is sure to once again shatter all preconceived notions as to how far a wifi signal can travel!

The goal of the contest is simple: to achieve the greatest possible connect distance between two 802.11b/g stations through innovative engineering and antenna design. Held in conjunction with the annual Defcon conference, teams will be drawn from the pool of approximately 5000 Defcon attendees to see whose wifi reigns supreme! Spectacular prizes and fun are available to all who participate.
