Gala Dinner Speaker Announced
For those staying for the Saturday night Gala dinner we are pleased to annouce that the after-dinner speaker will be Howard Long, G6LVB. Howard is probably most well-known within the amateur world as the designer of the FUNcube dongle and his work with AMSAT-UK. We are sure he will provide an fascinating end to the dinner
This year’s RSGB Convention will include a Buildathon, or kit building workshop, on the Saturday. Those taking part will build a 40m Software Defined Receiver that can be modified to cover other bands using an external signal source. The kit uses through-hole components so there will be no need for special soldering techniques or magnifying goggles, etc. However, there will be experienced builders on hand to assist with building and testing the kits. Those wishing to take part in the Buildathon will need to buy a ticket for the Convention and pay for a place at the Buildathon. Click on the ‘Book Now’ button at www.rsgb.org/convention. A Buildathon ticket includes all you will need and the Kanga Products Acorn SDR Receiver Kit. Further details from RSGB Board member Steve, G0FUW via e-mail to email@example.com
There will be five lecture streams which means that there should be something for every one most of the time on both Saturday and Sunday. Lectures are now being confirmed click here fore details
