Call for Abstracts for 2020 Technical Symposium

Call for Abstracts, RCA’s 2020 Technical Symposium in Pittsburgh


The Radio Club of America is soliciting abstracts for presentations for its 2020 Technical Symposium.

We welcome abstracts on all wireless subjects including antennas, broadband, broadcasting, cellular communications, land mobile radio, manufacturing, military communications, satellites, and other wireless-related topics.

However, because this year RCA will help Pittsburgh station KDKA celebrate their 100th anniversary of commercial broadcasting in the U.S., we are especially interested in presentations about broadcast technology.

If you are interested in being considered, please submit the following to amy@radioclubofamerica.org, prior to May 28th:

  • A title for the presentation
  • 1 or 2 paragraph abstract summarizing what you intend to present on
  • A short biography of the presenter(s)
  • A medium resolution headshot of the presenter(s)

In June the abstracts will be reviewed and you will be notified if you are chosen to present.

Presentation slide decks are hosted on the RCA Website for several years, and the presentations are videoed and archived for the public to view for several years as well.   Past presenters have referred prospective business clients and others to their archived presentations.

Prospective presenters should understand that as a non-profit, RCA cannot pay for any travel expenses.  Presenters will receive free entrance to the Technical Symposium and as a presenter will be entitled to a breakfast and lunch at no cost.
