More Than 70 Speakers Scheduled for "Virtual Ham Expo"

As we reported here last month, QSO Today podcast host Eric Guth,4Z1UG, is trying to fill the vacuum left by cancelled hamfests by organizing an online "QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo," which will be accessible via your computer or mobile device on the weekend of August 8 and 9. 

The event has drawn many major manufacturers and other vendors (including CQ) as participants, and the forums will feature more than 70 speakers on a variety of topics for both new and experienced hams. There will also be a youth track, led by Carole Perry, WB2MGP. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Scott Wright, K0MD, a well-known contester and Editor of the National Contest Journal who is also one of the leaders of the Mayo Clinic's study on using blood plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients to help others fight the disease. 

Admission is free and pre-registration is encouraged at <https://www.qsotodayhamexpo.com/>.
