Talk by Oli MM0YOS

Programming Computers
All of us use computers all the time, or devices with computer chips in them — but how do they actually work? How do you make them do things? In this talk, Oli will show several practical examples to demonstrate how computer programming is done on different levels, from hardware-based Arduino to modern web applications. No prior knowledge is required, just a healthy curiosity about current technology!

Antenna Building

This all-day practical session takes place at Clive’s (GM4FZH) QTH. There is the possibility of building antennas and looking at faulty antennas/installations. If you want to build an antenna (such as a vertical HF antenna or linked dipole) you will need to make sure you have the component parts for it. There are some machine shop facilities available at the location. PLEASE have a look at want you want to do, preferably discuss it with us first. We keep fingers crossed for a fine day! Contact Clive in the first instance. The talk on 3rd October is a suitable follow-up.
