3rd UK High Altitude Society Conference

The UKHAS conference in London attracts those interested in learning about building and flying High Altitude Balloons or in tracking their 434 MHz signals

This year the conference takes place on Saturday 7 September 2013 and the venue will be the Greenwich University.

The conference is open to all, you don’t have to have flown a High Altitude Balloon, you’ll probably get more out of it as a total beginner as there will be a huge wealth of experience in the room you can speak to.

A lecture theatre and adjacent classroom are being hired so will have a lot more space than last time. Lunch will be included as before.

The day plan will be most likely lectures in the morning and then in the afternoon workshops, demos and more informal talks. Provisional talks include:

  • James Coxon M6JCX – Pico Balloons (3 years on)
  • Ed Moore M0TEK – How GPS works
  • John Graham-Cumming – Debugging HABs (Part 2)
  • Ara Kourchian – US Ballooning
  • Dave Akerman M6RPI – Pi in the sky + Afternoon workshop

Tickets will be £30 per person but we will offer a reduced price for students of £15, this enables the hire of the lecture theatre, classroom and also provides lunch. Tickets are on sale from HAB supplies - http://ava.upuaut.net/store/index.php?route=product/search&filter_name=ukhas
