With the lack of interference free Microwave Allocations very much 
on everyone's mind the presentation by the RSGB Microwave Manager 
Murray Niman G6JYB on "The Future of Amateur Satellite Spectrum" 
will be received with great interest. The presentation will summarise 
both the challenges and opportunities for Amateur Satellite spectrum 
and future satellite designers from 50 MHz to beyond 50 GHz.

The RSGB GB4FUN van will be present throughout the event to allow 
visitors to work the satellites and an RSGB bookstall will be 
available on Saturday morning.

On Friday there will be a special "Beginners Workshop" to show 
newcomers how to use the many Amateur Satellites that are available.

The event is open to all Amateurs and SWL's. Either day passes or 
full packages comprising overnight accommodation and meals at the 
University are available.  An online booking service is available 
for PayPal, Visa and Master Card payments.
