CTARC Forthcoming SARL Technical Symposium - 12 Apr '19


Unlocking Amateur Radio Technology


Date:     Friday 12 April 2019, 13h00 – 19h30, followed by cocktails

Organizing the 2019 SARL Symposium has now been underway for some time, and a lot of groundwork has been covered. We are confident that by now you are well aware of the events which constitute the symposium, which will take place on the 12th April 2019 at the Techno Park in Stellenbosch.

Unlocking Amateur Radio Technology promises to be a very exciting event that Radio Amateurs who want to get more from their hobby should attend.

Presentations on:
  • How to use your computer to receive radio signals with the aid of a low cost “dongle” plugin;
  • Development of a Reverse Beacon Network for determining propagation opportunities in the VHF bands;
  • The workings of the IARU and its importance to Radio Amateurs worldwide;
  • The latest 3U orbiting CubeSat built by CPUT;
  • The latest craze - FT8;
  • and much more!
We are also in the fortunate position of having representation by universities, industry and research organizations. This is the ideal opportunity for us to get together and share our experiences and broaden our outlook in what is happening in other related fields.

So, do not not let this opportunity slip by!

Please register timeously to ensure your seat and presence at the evening cocktail.
Book early - there are only 50 seats available at R250, after that registration will cost R700.

To keep Radio Amateurs abreast of developments, updates will be published in News Bulletins, on the SARL Website and in Newsletters and other media.
