2008 ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference

The 27th DCC is now history.

Below are a few of the highlights. If you have any comments or pictures to contribute please contact us.

The highpoint of DCC? One would probably have to say the outstanding A/V setup. Two large screens with flamethrower projectors in the main ballroom plus two remote large screen LCD monitors and sound in the hallway and the demo room allowed keeping track of presentations wherever you might be.

Kermit Carlson, W9XA, and crew spent many hours making arrangements, setting up and operating A/V equipment. A/V equipment was provided by Ron Steinberg, K9IKZ.

Mark Thompson, WB9QZB headed up the local marketing efforts.

Oh, but how about the roast pig Friday night at the social hour, wasn't that pretty good too?

DVDs are now available.
