Wed 10 Jan 2024 - LRS Video Night

‘The Boat That Rocked’ was set in the 1960s offshore broadcasting era. 

There was a turnout of 13 at the Edinburgh Cine & Video Society for this enjoyable video, presented by Peter Dick GM4DTH. Click for report.

====================================

Thanks to Colin Murray's inspiration, several members of the LRS enjoyed attending an Institution of Engineering & Technology event at Napier University.

The lecture given by Dr Carol Marsh OBE provided an interesting insight into the current status of the Scottish Space Programme and was focused on satellite communication & phased antenna arrays.

Lots of networking was done and future collaboration is anticipated between the LRS, IET and MOC.
