QSO Today Virtual Ham Radio Expo August 14-15 2021.

 Well, it's that time of year again for the running of the QSO Today Virtual Ham Radio Expo this year it's happening on August 14-15. In the first running of the Expo, there were issues with getting the videos and Q&A sessions working smoothly. The second edition had log-in issues that I too had problems with and really was not able to log into the live sessions.  On the home page for the 2021 Expo in bold lettering, we are told "we promise an amazing, flawless event" I am assuming this has to do with the login issues from the last Expo event? My question is....are you going to be attending this year's Expo in August? I know some comments last year we're asking for a return of their money. If you did not receive your money back maybe contact the Expo and see if you can get your refund as a free pass for this year's event? As for myself, I am going to be giving it a go again this year to see how things turn out. The cost is the same 10.00 in advance or 12.50 after August 8 and onward. 

So let me know about your plans regarding the 2021 August Expo?

No problems with the first expo, but I too was unable to login to the second one. I was able to watch the videos sometime later when they were made available but no Q&A that I could find. I felt like I got my money's worth and didn't request a refund. Not going to try a third time as big hamfests are opening back up here in the US. Huntsville next month and Orlando in February. Online is cheaper and you don't have to travel, but IMHO it can't match the real thing. Looking forward to Dayton next May and hoping Covid doesn't rear its head and force cancellations.

James very nice to hear from you and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, it's nice to read that the hamfests down your way are starting to reopen. As they say on the new things seem to be getting back to normal. Here in the Maritimes things also are starting to open up as well. The hamfests down this way are not huge and to get to some it's a very long drive. I am going to give the Expo another shot this year and see how it goes.
Have a nice Sunday and a great up coming week.
