RSGB Convention news

| August 15, 2014

The RSGB Convention takes place between 10th and 12 October and will be held at the Kent’s Hill Conference Centre in Milton Keynes.

Dave Powis, G4HUP is doing an SMD presentation on the Saturday, followed by workshops during the day.

The provisional programme is here.

Visitors can book their places in the workshop, which takes up to an hour with only six individuals per session.

During the session they will learn solder dispensing and component placement of surface mount components and they will have access to a reflow oven.

Also on Saturday, from 9am until 1pm, Keith, G3VKW, Chris, GM3WOJ and Fred, G4BWP will have a number of vintage transceivers on display, dating from the 1960s.

These will be connected to a receive antenna, so older visitors can relive the experience of listening on one of these radios that they may have owned in the past, while younger visitors can also share that experience.

The RSGB has extended the Early Bird discount until the 1 September so there’s still time to get a bargain. Go to to book your place.
