Saturday Keynote Speaker

Dave Casler, KE0OG

I Love Ham Radio! Not only do I love ham radio, I love bringing it to others! I create ham radio training videos as well as videos on other ham radio topics, including technical and operating topics. My goal is to help those new to ham radio progress through the ranks and enjoy the hobby to its fullest. I think I’m unique in that I have the only license training videos that exactly correspond to the ARRL license manuals. I also have a series called “Ask Dave” to answer even the most basic questions about the hobby. My goal is to create a “safe space” for newcomers where all questions are regarded as serious and get a straight answer. Folks have used my videos to get their original Technician license, upgrade to General, and then upgrade to the highest level, Amateur Extra Class. I also send personal emails to many of those who ask questions.
