The AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium in Guildford starts at 3:30pm on Friday, July 24 with a special session for newcomers to the amateur satellite world.

Newcomers will be helped through the complexities by three amateurs, Dave G4DPZ, Carlos G3VHF and Drew KO4MA, who, between them, have thousands of hours of experience.

They will explain the theories and talk about the practice of listening to and having satellite contacts through the ever increasing number of satellites in orbit.

This year, there will be copies available of the very recently updated AMSAT-NA publication “Getting started with Amateur Satellites 2015″ in full colour available for sale from the shop at a special show price of £15.
