RSGB Convention

** Provisional Programme Now released **
(click here for more details)

The RSGB Convention will, once more be held at Kents Hill Park Conference Centre, Milton Keynes on 12-14 October 2018

We plan the usual broad mix across the five streams with topics to cater for all tastes and at all levels. AMSAT will be organising some of the lectures as the AMSAT Colloquium will be incorporated into the Convention again this year.

Keynote speaker

We are delighted that Tim Duffy, K3LR has agreed to be our Keynote and after-dinner speaker. Tim is amongst the leaders, if not the leader, in the contesting field of amateur radio. He will be talking about his contest station but also, as he puts it, focusing on “keeping Ham Radio fun and alive”.

Construction Competition 2018

One successful aspect of the 2017 Convention was the increased number of entries for the Construction Competition.

The aim of the competition is to encourage home construction, experimentation, design and innovation.

This year’s competition is now open for entries and you’ll find more information and an application form at

More details coming soon…

Whilst we have confirmed the outline of the lecture streams but the organisers are still keen to hear suggestions for talks to be given at the event.

Please email any ideas to

We look forward to seeing you at the Convention in October.
