    As an ARRL Life member, I would like to hear what he has to say. Since Gary Pierce is not doing this anymore I'm guessing I am out of luck. TAPR knows how and the hosts of the SDR Academy at Friedrichshafen know how but the secret is lost on the rest of the big Ham Radio events.

    No, you're not...

    A video of the HRU keynote address by ARRL CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX, is now available on the event web site:

    Scroll down the home page and look for the link to HRU 2019 Keynote Address on the right hand side.

    The video runs just over 40-minutes.
    Not: since the auditorium was not mic'd, it is difficult to hear the queries from the audience during the Q&A.
