Last year, we held a WPA section-wide DV Radio Seminar – at the Uniontown ARC. The response was fantastic. In fact, we had more hams wanting to sign up than we could accommodate. Now, we’re holding one again – in a more central location! The seminar date is Saturday, March 3rd.
You’ll learn about the different DV methodologies available to hams and experience samples of DV audio – compared against analog FM. You’ll see the advantages of DV radios and repeaters, plus-up-to-the-minute technologies and also see “what’s hot and what’s not”. While the subject matter can be rather technical, it will be presented in a fashion that is informative and easy to understand.

Our venue is the Quality Inn & Suites at 1545 Wayne Avenue, in Indiana, PA. We’ll start the day with coffee at 9:00, then business starting up at 10:00. We’ll take a break for lunch and then regroup. As we have the meeting room well into the afternoon, there will be plenty of time for Q&A, plus some demonstrations.
The seminar is made possible by our ARRL leadership – including WPA Section Manager, Joe Supeinis, W3BC, and will be conducted by our section Public Information Coordinator, Cory Sickles, WA3UVV. Cory writes the monthly column “Digitally Speaking”, for “The Spectrum Monitor” magazine and is a former columnist for various CQ Magazine publications.

The 2018 WPA DV Radio Seminar is free to attend, but seating is limited and we do need to have you sign up. Please send an email to wa3uvv@gmail.com – including your name, callsign, and telephone number. You will be contacted to confirm your reservation and again to remind you of the date. If our response is anything like last year, it is strongly suggested you sign up ASAP.

If this event is well-attended, it will indicate there is a high level of interest in holding events such as this, nearer to the center of the section. Again, that’s Saturday, March 3, 2018, from 9:00AM to 3:00 PM.

We hope to see you there!
