The 39th Annual ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference (DCC) will
be a virtual conference on September 11 and 12, using Zoom video
communications and YouTube video-sharing platforms.

Registered DCC attendees participating via Zoom will be able to interact
with presenters and other attendees via a chat room as well as raise a
virtual hand to ask questions. Go to
https://tapr.org/product/dcc-registration/ to register (you don’t need a
Zoom account to register).

Non-registered DCC attendees can watch the live stream for free on YouTube,
however, non-registered DCC attendees will not be able to ask questions or
chat. No registration is required for YouTube access (the YouTube URL will
be announced and posted on this webpage preceding the DCC).

DCC registration is free for TAPR members and $30 for non-members. Members
receive a 100% discount at checkout. Go to
https://tapr.org/product/dcc-registration/ to register.

Non-members who would like to join TAPR and receive the free DCC pass can
simply add TAPR membership and DCC registration to their shopping carts.
After checkout, they will receive the free DCC pass when their membership
is processed.
