Provisional Programme Now Released
(click here for details)

The RSGB Convention will, once more be held at Kents Hill Park Conference Centre, Milton Keynes on 13-15 October 2017

The RSGB Convention programme is devloping and we will have exciting lectures covering HF and DXpeditions along with VHF and Technical ones.  In addition, AMSAT will be organising some of the lectures as the AMSAT Colloquium will be incorporated into the RSGB Convention this year.  We expect the talks to be finalised shortly with as usual a broad mix across the five streams. There will be topics to cater for all tastes and we hope the Construction Competition will again be held on the Saturday.

Following the success of our videos last year, for RSGB members only we have released a number of videos of the RSGB 2016 Convention presentations. The latest ones to be released include: The story of SDR and FlexRadio by Gerald Youngblood, K5SDR; Design, construction and finishing by Bob Burns, G3OOU; EMC – diagnosing and reporting RFI by John Rogers, M0JAV; and The rise and rise of 6cm EME by Peter Blair, G3LTF These can be found in our new online video portal.

For non-RSGB members, or if you missed those from the RSGB 2015 Convention, take a look at our YouTube channel where you’ll find a range of presentations including  Navassa Island DXpedition by Glen Johnson W0GJ; Engineering the Gemini Range of LDMOS VHF Power Amplifiers by Chris Bartram GW4DGU; and What Makes the Pings Go Ping? by John Worsnop G4BAO.  We hope these inspire you to join us this year.

We look forward to seeing you at the Convention this year.

Graham Murchie, G4FSG
RSGB Convention Chairman
