2022 Speaker Admiral Ed Giambastiani N4OC
The Florida Contest Group is honored to welcome Admiral Ed Giambastiani, USN, Retired, better known to us as N4OC to the podium in 2022. Admiral Giambastiani retired in 2007 following a distinguished 37-year career in the US Navy that saw him rise to the position of Vice-Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Ed splits his time between the Washington, DC area and south Florida, and he has more free time now to indulge in his passion for contesting, particularly from the Caribbean. Ed’s contesting career spans from the 1970’s, when he operated as a part of M/M and M/S teams at W1ZM and other stations in New England, to the 2010’s when he was a part of several very successful teams operating from P4 and other Caribbean hotspots.
