15:30 Start for Satellite Beginners Workshop

The start time for the Satellite Beginners Workshop has been brought forward slightly to 1530 BST Friday July 29.

AMSAT-UK will be holding a Satellite Beginner’s Workshop at 3:30pm on Friday afternoon, July 29, to teach newcomers how to get started in the fascinating world of Amateur Radio Space communications.

With some satellites you can communicate using little more than a standard dual-band FM handheld. Others use SSB or CW and permit intercontinental DX communications using the VHF/UHF bands.

The Beginners Workshop will be run by Dave G4DPZ and Carlos G0AKI and takes place at the Holiday Inn, Guildford, GU2 7XZ. Look for the RSGB GB4FUN vehicle in the car park.

The AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium takes place Saturday/Sunday, July 30/31, details at http://www.uk.amsat.org/colloquium-2011/
