RSGB National Convention 2016
Thanks to all those who came along to the lecture and workshops yesterday at Kents Hill. I found the day very worthwhile and interesting, and it was good to meet you all. I can only apologise for delays caused later in the day while I had to nip off to collect awards!
Within the next few days I will be posting a new page on this site supporting the E Field Active Antenna Probe (at the moment I am finalising some of the documentation), and I’ll also post the slides from yesterdays presentation at http://g4hup.com/Biblio.htm You can also find the slides and information from previous years presentations on SMD in this location.
hupRF has been invited to return and hold some more workshops on SMD practice. There will be three workshop sessions during the day, after a talk in the first time-slot.
The talk will start at 09:45 lasting until 10:30. The first practical workshop will be from 11:00 (just after coffee) until 12:15. After lunch, there will be two more workshop sessions, from 13:45 till 14:45 and 15:00 till 16:00. Please use the form below to identify which session you would prefer to attend. Booking is strongly recommended to make sure that you have a place at a time that suits you.
There will be a new project for the SMD construction activity this year – an Active Antenna. This small unit will allow you to receive signals across the MF & HF range using your SDR or a conventional receiver. As with all Active Antennas, it is an Rx only device – it is NOT suitable for transmit!
The Project has two parts – the Active Antenna itself, and the DC power feed circuit to provide the 12V to power the antenna.
