Can’t make it to the convention this year—but would love to see this presentation. Any chance of sharing the materials afterwards? Even better-could someone videotape the presentation and provide a link? 

This technology is really adding a lot to the hobby. Thanks to all who are spearheading the effort.

If the collaborators on the Phasing talk could send me a draft of their presentation (PowerPoint or Word presumably), I would be happy to supply comments that could form an addendum.

I would touch on the different requirements, e.g. broadband - driven by SDR spectrum capture, of today's phaser applications versus the one-frequency-at-a-time version that got going when Gordon Nelson first brought Beverage phasing to the MW DX hobby in the late '60s.
