Saturday 2nd September – BEFORE the Hamfest
G-QRP convention with Social and Buildathon Saturday evening at The Holiday Inn, Telford. https://www.holidayinn.com/hotels/gb/en/telford/teluk/hotel
The Social and Buildathon runs from 7:00-10:30pm in their Conference suite.
All necessary tools and components will be provided to make your own Arduino based Power Meter, with <1% measured error up to at least 440 MHz, and inputs from pWatts to 30 watts! The cost will be just £25 payable on the night. You can reserve your kit now by contacting Heather M0HMO on 07802 548938 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. However, as at 25/08/17, all the Buildathon Kits are now spoken for, but a small number may become available during or after the event. Contact Heather (see above) if you’d like to be considered for a kit.
The Holiday Inn contact number is 01952 527000 and admission to the Buildathon is free.
If you require a room, be sure to mention the ‘GQRP radio event‘ for a discount.
If no rooms remain, there are two other hotels within walking distance – The Ramada Telford (tel 01952 42500) and The Park Inn Telford (01952 429988); There are dozens of other places to stay overnight around Telford, probably cheaper, but not on the doorstep!
Don’t forget to come down to Coalbrookdale the next morning for the Hamfest! see www.telfordhamfest.co.uk
