On August 16th 2014, the UKHAS (UK High Altitude Society) conference will be held at The University of Greenwich’s Old Royal Naval College. The full address is:
Old Royal Naval College,
Last year’s conference was a great experience. The talks, which were delivered in the morning, were entertaining and full of useful information. This year will be no exception. I’m particularly looking forward to Dave Akerman & Anthony Stirk’s talk about their new Pi-In-The-Sky board, an expansion board for Raspberry Pi owners to turn their mini computer into a HAB payload with ease. Other highlights include a talk on WebSDR by Philip Crump M0DNY and UKHASNET by James Coxon amongst others.
Philip Crump will also be organising UK Amateur Radio Foundation exams to be taken during the afternoon which will be held along with several workshops to be confirmed.
All details on the conference and ticket prices are available on the UKHAS website at: http://wiki.ukhas.org.uk/general:ukhasconference2014 It’s a fantastic venue to mix with the significant faces of the UK HAB circle and to pick up valuable knowledge on subjects ranging from HAB through Rocketry and on to Satellites.
If you attend, please find me (I’m hard to miss!) and say Hi!
