    The 5th QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo opens this Friday evening, September 16th, 2022, at 18:00 Pacific, or 17.09.22 at 0100 UTC, coming to a PC or tablet computer near you. Tickets for the entire weekend and the 30 day on-demand period are only $10.00. Because it is virtual, you do not have to leave your QTH to participate in the conference that includes over 50 great amateur radio presentations, live "eyeball QSOs" in our Kumospace virtual lounges, two live build-a-thons to build a complete HF station over the weekend, our virtual exhibition hall, and our new Project Gallery, with videos, articles, and papers on a host of ham radio projects. The ARRL - The National Association for Amateur Radio, is our Expo Partner, and FlexRadio is our Platinum Sponsor.

    3Y0J 2023 DXpedition Team Members at the Expo
    We will be joined by a number of the 3Y0J Bouvet Island DXpedition team members at the Expo who, in addition to their exhibit booth, will be available in our "Kumospace" lounges introduced at the last QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo last March. These rooms were very popular with our audience because they allow hams to meet new people and visit with old friends. We expect that conversations and group discussions with continue throughout the weekend.

    Project Gallery, a new feature at the Expo
    We are pleased to present a new project gallery where amateurs submitted papers, articles, and videos describing their most recent projects. These are self-service kiosks that are available during the entire weekend and 30 day on-demand period.

    Sorry but I cannot believe people will actually pay to visit a virtual product that they want to sell. How dumb do you have be to get ripped off like this.

    Jose - are you suggesting that I am a thief? Do you know me, Jose? Did you come to the Expo and experience getting ripped off? Or does your keyboard give you strength that you don't have in person to make unsubstantiated claims about me? 73, Eric

    I can't believe this comment . . . That event turned out to be a phenomenal mix of speakers and subjects. I have spent many hours now learning about new ham subjects, and it has been an immense joy. For $10 admission you got an entire college semester full of education about your hobby. I also went into various lounges and spoke to representatives of companies I like or have considered, and got technical questions answered about their gear. There's no way this was a ripoff. You have to wonder why someone like this Jose guy could come on here in public and say something like that. WOW. Eric, Job well done my friend! Dave, W7DGJ
