On Saturday & Sunday evenings there is no dinner or gathering booked. Please feel free to organize a small group and head down to Salamanca or the Constitution Dock area where there are many pubs and restaurants available. Pre-booking a table is always preferred as it can get quite busy on weekends.

Q: I’m new to amateur radio, so I’ve never been to one of these events. What is in it for me?

We understand there is quite a considerable interest from more recently licensed hams in attending this event. For this reason, we have chosen a balanced and broad array of topics including both technical and practical for the conference. 

If you’re new, please let one of our friendly volunteers know and we’d be happy to talk to you about our hobby!
