This year I will be heading to Detroit MI to record the TAPR Digital Communications Conference.  This conference is held once a year, but in different locations - the administrators of the DCC have granted me permission to record each seminar and post it to my YouTube Channel, in an effort to share with the general Ham Radio Community, the information presented at the conference, for those who cannot attend, or cannot attend all 3 days. This will be my 2nd year to record this event, and I am looking forward to it.  Last year's recordings can be seen here.

The ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference is an international forum for radio amateurs to meet, publish their work, and present new ideas and techniques. Presenters and attendees will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and learn about recent hardware and software advances, theories, experimental results, and practical applications.  

Topics include, but are not limited to: Software Defined Radio (SDR), digital voice , digital satellite communications, Global Position System (GPS), precision timing, Automatic Packet Reporting System(tm)(APRS), short messaging (a mode of APRS), Digital Signal Processing (DSP), HF digital modes, Internet interoperability with Amateur Radio networks, spread spectrum, IEEE 802.11 and other Part 15 license-exempt systems adaptable for Amateur Radio, using TCP/IP networking over Amateur Radio, mesh and peer to peer wireless networking, emergency and Homeland Defense backup digital communications, using Linux in Amateur Radio, updates on AX.25 and other wireless networking protocols.

Risks and challenges

My YouTube Channel focuses on "What is New in Amateur Radio?" and this Digital Communications Conference is cutting-edge technology for some of the new topics that Amateurs are experimenting with today.

Risks and challenges

The challenge this year will be able to get all videos edited and posted before the end of 2019. That is a goal I have set for myself.
