Reg, G8VHI kindly sent me details of a VHF/UHF stream at the RSGB's HF Convention to be held in October. Here's the press release.
RSGB Convention – Wyboston 9th–11th October 2009. This years event, at the Wyboston Lakes Conference centre in Bedfordshire, will for the first time, see the inclusion of a full stream of VHF lectures and presentations This new stream will run alongside the usual streams of HF, DX, Technical and Beginners lectures.
Here’s a great opportunity to meet the people involved at the leading edge of the use of the spectrum, in the usual lecture environment but more importantly in a social environment. As in previous years the Convention will be hosting the full range of UK licence exams. A detailed programme will be available in due course. So remember - RSGB Convention – Wyboston 9-11th October – see you there.
You will note that the RSGB Convention now encompasses VHF and above; Reg (G8VHI) and Neil (G3RIR) have been asked to run the new stream which will have the theme of
VHF/UHF/SHF DXing and Contesting through technical excellence and development but not forgetting the beginners to these bands.
We already have a number of excellent lectures planned but we would like to receive suggestions of which topics and lecturers you would like incorporated. Also, perhaps, some of you may wish to offer to give a talk within the theme.
Please feel free to distribute this e-mail to any one you think may be interested including any relevant reflectors.Neil, G3RIR g3rir 'at' yahoo 'dot' com and Reg, G8VHI regwoolley 'at' aol 'dot' com will be pleased to hear from you
