RSGB Convention 2017

***Bookings NOW Open***

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

We are starting to identify speakers for the RSGB Convention and would particularly like to develop the HF and DXpedition content further. If you have suggestions for any topics or speakers you would like to hear, please send an outline to

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 over the coming months 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.  These include Contesting from VY2ZM on Prince Edward Island by Jeff Briggs, VY2ZM; Developments in IOTA, update on electronic QSLing and the future by Roger Ballister, G3KMA; and Advances in amateur television by Noel Matthews, G8GTZ.  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
