Volunteers from the British Amateur Radio Club (BATC) streamed and recorded the presentations from the AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium 2014 which took place July 26-27 at the Holiday Inn, Guildford, GU2 7XZ. Our thanks to them for providing this invaluable service.

The weekend event attracted an international audience from across Europe as well as North America and Africa. Attendees ranged from the builders of the CubeSats and Nanosats, those who communicate through them and beginners who wish to find out more about this fascinating branch of the hobby. It provided a rare opportunity to chat with satellite designers and builders.
