With the lack of interference free Microwave Allocations very much on everyone's mind the presentation by the RSGB Microwave Manager Murray Niman G6JYB on "The Future of Amateur Satellite Spectrum" will be received with great interest. The presentation will summarise both the challenges and opportunities for Amateur Satellite spectrum and future satellite designers from 50 MHz to beyond 50 GHz.
The RSGB GB4FUN van will be present throughout the event to allow visitors to work the satellites and an RSGB bookstall will be available on Saturday morning.
On Friday there will be a special "Beginners Workshop" to show newcomers how to use the many Amateur Satellites that are available.
The event is open to all Amateurs and SWL's. Either day passes or full packages comprising overnight accommodation and meals at the University are available. An online booking service is available for PayPal, Visa and Master Card payments. See http://www.uk.amsat.org/Colloquium/
