RSGB webinar Tonight@8 : Discover more about ARDF @ (online)
mei 17 @ 21:00 – 23:00

Discover more about Amateur Radio Direction Finding  –  Bob G3ORY


Bob takes a look at Amateur Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) from its start in the UK prior to World War 2 to the situation in 2021 where there is a worldwide structure, competition format and rules. It covers the legal impediments to running DF hunts using cars, the frequencies, competition formats and the equipment needed for 2021 ARDF.
There will then be a sequence of videos showing someone competing in a 144MHz event which shows not just the taking and plotting of bearings but the whole decision-making process that results in locating the hidden transmitters rapidly. It is the challenge of this process that can make ARDF so enjoyable. The webinar will also feature contributions from Kim Taylor, M0KNV giving the perspective of a regular Club member being talked into trying ARDF and from Flora Jolly who was persuaded to go out and try ARDF with her Dad David, M0JCO. The presentation wraps up with a review of ARDF coverage across the RSGB Regions and the steps currently being taken by the RSGB Board and the ARDF Committee to make provision for ARDF in all regions.

RSGB webinar Tonight@8 : EMC/EMF regulering in UK @ (online)
jul 5 @ 21:00 – 23:00

Assessing your station against ICNIRP EMF levels  –  John M0JAV

Ofcom is implementing changes to all transmitting licences to require licensees to comply with ICNIRP general public limits on EMF exposure. This will include previously licence exempt users who transmit at powers of more than 10W EIRP. John will introduce the work of the RSGB and ARRL experts in assessment of exposure to EM fields.

RSGB responded to the Ofcom consultation (on behalf of UK amateurs) and we are now preparing guidance on compliance with the new requirements. The talk will outline these requirements and introduce four ways to conduct and record the results of the assessment include calculating required separation, use of known compliant station configurations and potential mitigating actions.
