Crowds flock to BATC at Friedrichshafen

| July 3, 2015

More than 200 radio amateurs visited the British Amateur Television Club (BATC) stand at the international amateur radio exhibition at Friedrichshafen.

BATC chairman Noel Matthews, G8GTZ described it as a “very busy and worthwhile” three day event promoting both amateur television and the BATC.

Enthusiasts from across Europe, and beyond, were shown demonstrations of the latest reduced bandwidth digital television projects.

Many commented on how impressed they were with the MPEG-4 picture quality using just 500kHz bandwidth.

The new USB tuner project MiniTiouner demonstrated by F6DZP also created a lot of interest.

The BATC shop enjoyed a brisk trade and new joiners at the event helped boost the club’s membership to more than 950.
