ickets are on sale now for the upcoming QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo on March 12-13, 2022.   It’s an amazing experience for anybody that wants to improve their amateur radio knowledge and get exposed to new ideas, cutting edge ham radio technology, and practical operating and building techniques.  And there is no need to travel - anyone can participate from their home or office!  Information and tickets can be found at

Here are some Expo highlights that we want to share with you:

Watch the Keynote Presentation.  We are excited to announce that Courtney Duncan, N5BF, will be our keynote.  Courtney will talk about the importance of amateur radio and technical hobbies to advance global technology and mankind's ''big projects''.  Courtney just retired from JPL, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he supported numerous missions with digital and radio frequency hardware and software, most recently as telecommunications lead for the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter. 

Listen and engage with 60 ham radio luminaries on some 20 different topic areas - there is something for everyone.  Here are a few of the presentations, from general to expert levels:    

 A complete list of speakers can be found at

Watch as many presentations as you want!  A big limitation of in-person events is that you can’t watch many of the presentations (you can only be in one room at a time).  At the Expo, return anytime within 30 days to view any presentations you missed as well as explore exhibitor offerings.  Our presentation videos with Q&A from previous Expos are still enjoyed by amateurs on our Vimeo channel.  

ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio® in the United States, is a QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo Partner.  FlexRadio is the Expo’s Platinum Sponsor, Elecraft is our Gold Expo.

Early Bird Tickets are just $10 (through March 6) and then $13.50 to the end of the on-demand period.  Tickets include entry for the Live 2-day period and the 30-day on-demand period.  Save on gas, lodging, and travel to attend the QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo on March 12-13.  For more information, go to
