Calendar of events 2020-2021
20-October – Logger32 (Virtual) – a beginners introduction covering how best to run Logger32, the main menus, how to configure it for your needs, how to use it with a cluster and so on. The goal here is an introduction to Logger32 rather than an advanced covering of Logger32.
04-November – NVIS (Virtual) – Near Vertical Incidence Sky-Wave is a skywave radio-wave propagation path that provides usable signals in the distances range – usually 0—650 km (0 – 400 miles). It is used for military communications, broadcasting, especially in the tropics, and by radio amateurs for nearby contacts circumventing line-of-sight barriers. The radio waves travel near-vertically upwards into the ionosphere, where they are refracted back down and can be received within a circular region up to 650 km (400 miles) from the transmitter.

TBA January – Raspberry Pi Desktop on a PC (Virtual) – This session is not a presentation, but rather a working session on how to install the Raspberry Pi Desktop on your PC – at the end you will have Raspberry Pi Desktop running safely on your PC without impacting Windows itself. Raspberry Pi’s have become very popular around the world as they are a low-cost introduction to computing and at the same time they have great flexibility.
