    RSGB Convention 2022

    Posted: 08 May 2022 09:00 AM PDT https://carc.org.uk/2022/05/08/rsgb-convention-2022/



    For the first time in three years, the RSGB Convention will be taking place
    in person over the weekend of 8/9 October. Its open to all so no RSGB membership is required.








    The convention is a super event, based in Kents Hill Park, a comfortable residential convention center in Milton Keynes. There are five streams of lectures running constantly each day catering to every level of experience
    and covering most aspects of amateur radio. These will be published and refined in the coming months.








    Of course, there are plenty of opportunities to mingle with new and old
    friends from the air over the free tea, coffee, and biscuits available in
    the lounge.




    Martin Lynch is sponsoring the event so they will have a good selection of shiny kit on display and there is usually a top-line radio operating on HF
    to drool over.




    Tickets have just gone on sale here. There are many options available with pre-booked day tickets starting at £20 (£15 for Sunday) a discount of £5 over on-the-day prices. Of course, the convention has accommodation on
    site and some may opt to stay for two nights B&B with a seat at the Gala DX Dinner on Saturday evening. Every option in between is possible.




    An excellent 3-course lunch is available each day at a very reasonable
    price, parking is free and a shuttle bus runs to and from Milton Keynes
    Central station with direct trains from East Croydon should you wish to
    visit by train.




    So theres really no excuse. Several CARC members will be heading that way
    so sharing a lift is one of the best ways of getting to the convention.




    Hope to see you there (Ive already bought my weekend ticket).
