IARU R2 Workshops Response Far Exceeds Expectations

Interest in the first two IARU R2 Workshops as greatly exceeded expectations. The first Workshop in Emergency Communications was held in Spanish on April 29 and has an audience of over 100 tuning in on Zoom and YouTube. In the following 10 days over 700 have viewed this Workshop in the IARU R2 YouTube channel. The second Workshop on Emergency Communications was held on May 6th to a live audience of 217. This Workshop was in English and was specifically for amateurs in the Caribbean region at the request of the CTU and ITU.

The next Workshop on Emergency Communications will be in English on May 13th starting at 2300 UTC. Next on the schedule will be two “Satellites for Beginners” Workshops, one in Spanish and one in English. Registration is now closed for Workshop Zoom access, but all interested amateurs may participate via the IARUR2 YouTube channel: https://​bit​.ly/​2​S​D​8​2kx
