    Recordings of past presentations are available at the link below.

    DEFCON 28 (a well-known hacker conference) is online this year and is FREE to attend online and view presentations. Of particular interest will be Ham Radio Village. Several talks and presentations related ham radio will be available. Ham Radio Village will use the Twitch platform for their presentations. No login is needed to view these presentations (live or recorded).

    Some other DEFCON sessions, i.e. Aerospace Village (interesting stuff about satellites, etc.), will be held live and also recorded for later viewing. Some have already been recorded and are available immediately via YouTube.

    The event is over. Info above for recorded sessions will still be valid.

    Visit for more information and for links to join and attend.

    Note: If you are not familiar with Discord, joining the sessions can be confusing. Read the instructions carefully and follow exactly! If you get stuck, email the editor and put "DEFCON" in the subject line. I'll try to help if I am available, i.e. via phone, radio, or Zoom.

    Due to current conditions and real-life work situation, I have no choice to but to step down as Editor. AARC needs someone who can take over. I will donate the publishing software to AARC and offer online training (via Zoom) to whomever can take the job. Contact me at:  editor [at]

    Can't wait for in-person exams? There are several groups around the country now providing Remote Amateur License Exam Sessions. (Sorry... NO remote sessions from Austin exam coordinators.) Each group will have their own requirements for your testing environment.

    Most of the requirements involve a "sterile" testing environment - one computer, one monitor, and nothing in the room that could be used for assistance (cheating) during the exam. The sessions will require a smart phone to be used to show examiners your ID and to scan the room prior to examination. The computer will require a web camera and microphone for monitoring during the exam. Please review the requirements for each individual session to make sure you can meet the requirements. 

    Visit this site: for a list of testing sessions. Note: The list includes in-person exams, so be sure it says "Remote" session.
