Covid Continues to Cause Cancellations

The 2021 Tokyo Ham Fair
has been cancelled due to
the ongoing Covid pandemic
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has prompted additional cancellations. The ARRL Letter reports that the Japan Amateur Radio League, JARL, has reluctantly decided to cancel the 2021 Tokyo Ham Fair, which is the world's largest hamfest (yes, even bigger than Dayton). 

In addition, AMSAT changed its October 30, 2021 annual symposium and general meeting  from in-person to virtual. It was scheduled to be held on Zoom and livestreamed on YouTube at <https://youtu.be/RTvcceM7Tz0>. The AMSAT News Service also reported that the event had been renamed the 2021 AMSAT Dr. Tom Clark, K3IO, Memorial Space Symposium and Annual General Meeting in memory of its former president and satellite pioneer, who died in late September (see next item for more on K3IO).
