RSGB Convention – Will You Be There?

RSGB Convention – Will You Be There?

The RSGB Convention is being held at Kents Hill Park Conference Centre, Milton Keynes on 13-15 October 2017. This year, two SDARC members have been invited to speak.

Tony is presenting about his trip to Botswana and James is talking about his “M1N the Middle” project. Some talks are being videoed and we’re not sure if either of these will be made available for viewing at a later time.

The RSGB Convention programme has exciting lectures covering HF and DXpeditions along with VHF and Technical ones. In addition, AMSAT will be organising some of the lectures as the AMSAT Colloquium will be incorporated into the RSGB Convention this year.

There is a broad mix of subjects across five streams. There will be topics to cater for all tastes.

As usual, there will also be lots to see in the exhibition lounge with displays from a wide number of special interest groups. Chiltern DX Club, RSGB ARDF committee, AMSAT, UK Microwave Group and UK Six Metre Group will all be present along with a number of others. Near the tea and coffee will be displays from Icom, Kenwood and Yaesu so you can see their latest radio offerings. ML&S will be present selling a wide range of radios and there will be an RSGB bookstall selling our latest publications. There will also be DXCC card checking in the exhibition lounge so don’t forget to bring your QSL cards if you need them validated.

It is possible to attend the Convention for just a day, either Saturday or Sunday, or even both days.
