 RSGB 2022 Convention Presentations on Antennas & SDR

The RSGB has released two more 2022 Convention presentations for radio amateurs to enjoy. In “Antennas for an effective contest station” Lee Volante, G0MTN reviews many of the options available to the HF contester when making antenna choices. He considers how antenna type, height, location and available resources have to be balanced with the type of contest and a contester's personal goals. The “Further exploration of SDR” by Gordon Lean, G3WJG covers the design and performance of Software Defined Radio systems from direct carrier generation to the use of units incorporating the GNU-Radio design software. It also focuses on experience and actual use of equipment on all bands from 80M to 10 GHz and some of the benefits and difficulties associated with SDR operation. You can watch them both on the RSGB YouTube channel at or in the RSGB members’ portal at
