Almost like binging Netflix... here are five talks from the 2017 ARRL & TAPR Digital Communications Conference, held September 15-17 in St. Louis.
HRN 348: Welcome to the 2017 DCC
Before the DCC sessions get started, TAPR President Steve Bible N7HPR spends a few minutes welcoming everyone to this year's conference, giving the lay of the land (bathrooms, lunch) and introducing the people who help put on the event.
Listening to this session gives you a little more of the "DCC Experience." If you consider attending in person one year, you'll have a better idea of what to expect.
HRN 349: Radio Amateur's Digital Notebook
- Jon Poland N0WL reviews ways to keep track of just about everything in your ham radio life with tools on the Internet.
HRN 350: Education, Testing, Training
- David Bern W2LNX and his local club (the Montgomery MD ARC) cover all the bases in making new hams, with the help of the Laurel VEC.
HRN 351: Fusion from the Inside
- Chris Petersen K9EQ digs into the capabilities and possibilities of Yaesu's System Fusion.
HRN 352: Noise in a Digital World
- I really wanted to call this something obscure, like The Wet Diamond Noise Blanker (you'll see why), but I restrained myself. FlexRadio's Steve Hicks N5AC gives an illuminating talk on how SDR technology lets you detect signals that are 'below the noise level' - and how you might not even know what 'the noise level' really is.
HamRadioNow has been covering the DCC since 2008 — 180 video programs (and counting), all on-line and free to watch. Details HERE.
