Special Events for Sunday 5th Nov 2017

We have the following special events for you to take part in – enjoy.

Lecture on “High Power Transmitting Small Tuned Loops”

We are very pleased to welcome Professor Mike Underhill G3LHZ, who will be giving a talk and presentation on “High Power Transmitting Small Tuned Loops“.  It is planned to commence at 10:45 and last about an hour. A repeat lecture may be given after lunch – this will be decided on the day. He will be bringing a couple or more example novel and experimental loops to show and perhaps measure with a VNA (SDR Kits).

Rally Purchase

Hi Ray

I was helping Mike Franklin on the Addiscombe Stand tucked right round the back near the bar (bring and buy stall). A Welshman in a wheelchair bought and old desktop Mac from me. He had a companion with him. I did not get their names. When I got home I found the CPU cooling fan unit on the side; I had taken it out to count the RAM chips. I told the purchaser that the Mac would work. It wont without the fan in place! Its a hell of a long shot, I know but would you be able to pass the word maybe by a quick email. Did anyone at the show on Sunday 30th April see and possibly recognise a guy in a wheelchair with a Mac G5 desktop on his lap; between 12:15 and 13:00 I’d say it was. Maybe the guy(s) on the door spoke to him on the way out. I’d like to at least get the fan to him.

Best regards
