The next QSO Today Virtual Ham Radio Expo is taking place on March 13-14, 2021, and is less than two months away! The QSO Today Expo team is working hard to make this upcoming Expo even better with new speakers, panel discussions, kit building workshops, and more.
Anyone can attend from their home or office. Early bird discounts are now available at www.qsotodayhamexpo.com . ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio® in the United States, is a QSO Today Expo Partner.
We are proud to announce that in addition to the 60+ Expo speakers, there will be an entire track dedicated to the amazing world of AMSAT – the worldwide group of amateur radio operators who share an active interest in building, launching and then communicating with each other through non-commercial amateur radio satellites. To date, over 70 amateur radio satellites have been launched. Any amateur radio operator can take advantage of this very cool satellite network. At the Expo, there will be many sessions by AMSAT experts who will discuss everything you need to know. These include:
Introduction to Amateur Radio Satellites (Douglas Quagliana, KA2UPW)
Getting On the Air with Satellites (Bradford Clint, K6LCS)
How to Enjoy Amateur Radio Contacts With the International Space Station (Frank Bauer, KA3HDO)
Implementation of LDPC Encoder on FPGA (Anshul Makkar)
Debris Mitigation in Earth’s Orbit (Anshul Makkar)
Digital Multiplexing Transponder from the Open Research Institute (Michelle Thompson, W5NYV)
Solving the ITAR and EAR Problem for the Amateur Radio Satellite Service (Michelle Thompson, W5NYV)
Remote Labs for P4XT Engineering Development (Paul Williamson, KB5MU)
At the Expo, you can participate from the convenience of your home or office without spending a dime on travel! This platform simulates a full convention experience with an exhibit hall and exhibit booths staffed by live attendants, speakers, networking lounges, and more. And your ticket allows you to return over the 30 days after the Expo to listen to speakers you missed during the Live period and spend more time exploring the exhibitor booths.
