The GQRP Convention meets at the Rishworth School, on the A672 (Ripponden) road from junction 22 on the M62. The school at Rishworth have bent over backwards to help us transfer to their premises, and George G3RJV has organised the usual lecture stream. The speakers will deliver their talks in a purpose built lecture theatre, and we have an excellent range of speakers. Even the regular pie man has promised to serve the usual excellent fare.
A Buildathon is where novice constructors build a project under the guidance of experienced radio constructors.
Project: The 2013 project will be RSGB Centenary Receiver (20m PSK) - all parts will be supplied.
Booking your place for 2013 : The arrangements are here.

Paul Darlington M0XPD
Following his recent article in SPRAT, Paul, M0XPD explains by example how simple micro-control systems and DDS modules are of use to the radio amateur. He says: “this talk is not aimed at digital specialists – rather I will try to show how new, inexpensive, accessible resources present an exciting opportunity for ALL who like to build and operate simple radio systems”.

Salt Water, Medium Waves and QRP
QRP Operation from the last offshore radio station 'Radio Seagull'
This talk outlines the activities at sea on Medium Wave and on the 80m band and the various challenges. If you enjoyed Radio Caroline in years gone by then this is for you. For once QRO and QRP mix to make a ripping story that involves music, radio, CW and a storm!
We hope that the presentations will be streamed live on the internet by Steve Fletcher, G4GXL.

Here is a map and here is another. The school is around 5 miles down the A672 towards Halifax, from junction 22 of the M62. The school post code is HX6 4QA. Don't think you have gone wrong when you are passing lots of sheep on the way - the school is at the start of civilisation - just past the second pub, and on the left side of the road, stood back from the road. The event remains exactly as it was in Rochdale - except in a new & larger venue.
