The 2017 Crawley Roundtable is on Sunday September 10.
Again this year following we will be holding a heat for the UK Microwave Group annual Project contest for the G3VVB trophy. Please do bring along your constructed equipment or project and enter. Entries do not necessarily need to have been finished during the last year.
Please note that the contest will also accept software entries as well as hardware. The winner of this round will go on to be considered together with entries from all the other roundtables over the past year after this event.
The morning will feature the usual 'bring and buy' sale, so if you have something to sell then please bring it along.
Mike G3LYP will be happy to bring any chip components from the UKuG Group chipbank to you at the meeting. If you have a forthcoming project then why not contact Mike beforehand to place your orders, which are free for UKuG group members.
The program this year as ever offers the microwaver something different - come along and support the construction contest heat and hear the talks.

Access to Site:
The access road into Tilgate Recreational Centre and the CARC Clubhouse (Hut-18) is via the sliproad at the new traffic lights on the southbound carriageway of the A23 (Brighton Road), just south of Crawley heading towards Brighton, and about 200m from the Broadfield Football Stadium roundabout which is well signposted.
The Clubhouse is accessed via a fairly narrow track for about 200m. Watch out for anti-traveller caravan chicanes then turn right at the 3rd sleeping policeman!
