2017 Technical Symposium Call for Abstracts

We are looking for presenters for our 2017 Technical Symposium to be held in Pittsburgh on Friday November 17th.  We welcome “early technical work” in any area of wireless including antennas, broadband, broadcast, cellular, land mobile radio, military, or satellite topics. 

Of especial interest this year are topics in broadcast areas, because the day after our Technical Symposium and Annual Banquet attending RCA members will be able to tour station KDKA, which is considered by some to be the first broadcast station in the U.S.

Prospective presenters should include a 1-2 paragraph abstract of the topic they wish to present on, a title, a short bio, and a headshot.  Sometime in the early fall the abstracts will be reviewed and all be notified if they have been chosen.  As in previous years, presentations should be of a technical nature and not be a sales pitch.   Those that are chosen to present will have their slide decks placed on the RCA Website, and the presentations will be live streamed and video archived in the RCA YouTube channel thanks to iCOM of America.

Please send your submissions to pantherpinesconsulting@gmail.com.
