MicroHAMS Digital Conference 2021 – Update

MicroHAMs Amateur Radio Club - Mon, 04/19/2021 - 11:10am

Since 2007 the Microsoft Amateur Radio Club (MicroHAMS) has held a conference focusing on digital communications: the MicroHAMS Digital Conference (MHDC). The mission of the MDHC conference is to “inspire, inform and educate.” As such, the MHDC presenters offer a variety of topics across a wide range of skill levels. 

One of the virtues of going online is that we can invite presenters that would be impractical to bring to the Seattle area.  This year, half of our presenters are from outside our area.  The latest updates will be published on the MicroHAMS web site at http://www.microhams.com/mhdc2021/

This year’s conference will feature the following – 

  • Walter Holmes, K5WH – Free DV Digital Voice for HF 
  • Gregg Marco, W6IZT – Rig in a Box solution for DXpeditions 
  • Bob Bruninga, WB4APR – The APRS author will discuss the latest developments 
  • Paul Elliott, WB6CXC – Developing and tracking drift buoys 
  • Paul Sturmer, KI7WLV – High speed communications from HuskySat-1 
  • Bryan Hoyer, K7UDR – The ultimate packet workstation 

Now in our 14th year, we are repeating the online format from last year’s event. The 2021 conference will be streamed to YouTube and at no charge (donations welcome). One of the virtues of going online is that we can invite presenters that would be impractical to bring to the Seattle area and support an unlimited number of attendees. In 2021, half of our presenters are from outside the Pacific Northwest.

During the conference, there are two ways that attendees can interact with our presenters. Attendees can ask questions in the YouTube chat channel, which we will pass on to the presenters during Q&A. For live Q&A, each session has a Zoom breakout room available at the end of the session. Presenters and attendees can hang out and answer questions in person for the hour after their session has aired. The entire conference will also be recorded and available on YouTube for viewing later.

See you Saturday! (April 24, 2021)
Scott Honaker, N7SS for the MHDC Team
