Also in GB2RS this week…

| August 23, 2019

The RSGB 2019 Convention takes place in Milton Keynes from 11 to 13 October 2019. The Buildathon on Saturday evening is a little different this year. Presented as an alternative to the Gala Dinner, those attending the Buildathon get a hot and cold buffet and an evening of surface mount construction. The event includes the food and also the SMD Sudden 2, a 40m direct conversion receiver, made and supplied by Kanga Products UK. All necessary equipment will be provided and there’s a helpful team of volunteers to assist you through the build. For more info, to book your Buildathon place for weekend packages or day tickets, go to Early Bird discounts have been extended until 1 September 2019.
