  1. TBD

  2. Hi – just moved to Mooresville, lapsed Ham who would like basic digital education. Please advise/share pointers on how to determine if any TAPR conference content will be remedial/targeting digital newbies. Will check back on this page, but so far says TBD. Thanks ES 73. Tom

    1. Hi Tom,

      I hope it turns out that you can make the DCC this time around. Few of us understand EVERYTHING but there is always a lot that (we) “newbies” pick up. That’s all part of the learning process. And there is ample time to ask follow up questions, on the spot publicly, and afterwards in chats with other friends and attendees!

      This year’s agenda looks like a real winner. Enjoy!
