For those that enjoy DXing, or want to learn about DXing, registration (free) is now open for the 72nd International DX Convention. This is what was previously known as the Visalia DX Convention. This year's event will be conducted via Zoom (surprise!). Sessions run from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm (Arizona Time) on both May 15 and 16. Registration for this free event is open now. Go to http://dxconvention.com to register and see the program line up. There will also be some impressive door prizes awarded at two drawings each day.
The new rules do not change existing RF exposure (RFE) limits but do require that stations in all services, including amateur radio, be evaluated against existing limits. More info here: http://www.arrl.org/w1aw-bulletins-archive/ARLB011/2021
