  • The Quest for Higher Frequencies by Peter Butcher

    12th March 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
    Woodford Park Leisure Centre, Haddon Dr, Woodley, Reading RG5 4LY, UK

    Peter Butcher takes a look at the development of RF oscillators from the early days of radio to the present day.

    Thelecture covers to the problems encountered from the firstuse of thermionic valves as amplifiers and oscillator. As their useincreased and the technology improved, solutions were sought to manyof the problems.

    Alwaysthe thrust was for operation at higher frequencies, as the wavebandsbecame more congested and valve technology evolved to allow operationat higher and higher frequencies.

    Widertuning ranges and more powerful oscillators were required fortransmitters. Circuits evolved to allow these two requirements to bemet.

    Ultimately,solid state technology was to take over all but the highestfrequencies and powers, but some of the basic problems still existedand the original solutions were still employed.

  • The Man who ate his own boots: Sir John Franklin's North West Passage expedition

    9th April 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
    2nd Woodley Scout Group, Vauxhall Park, Vauxhall Dr, Woodley, Reading RG5 4EA, UK

    At RADARC we're always interested in polar exploration.

    This talk covers the amazing journey of Sir John Franklin and his two ships, Terror and Erebus to find a route through the islands of northern Canada to the Pacific.

    It will also look at

    • Franklin the man
    • A history of the two ships
    • What went wrong with the expedition
    • The subsequent rescue mission to find Franklin and his men
    • Modern archaeological evidence giving insight into the fate of the sailors
    • Submarine footage of recently discovered ships off the coast of Prince William Island.

  • Solar Orbiter Update by Chris Brockley-Blatt

    23rd April 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
    Woodford Park Leisure Centre, Haddon Dr, Woodley, Reading RG5 4LY, UK

    Chris Brockley-Blatt, senior
    project manager and engineer at Mullard Space Science Labs (MSSL) is with us for an update on the
    Solar Orbiter mission.

    Venue: Woodford Park Leisure Centre, Woodford Park, Woodley, RG5 4LY
    Start Time: 8pm sharp (Chris needs to get away promptly)

    The mission is currently scheduled to lift off from Cape Canaveral
    launch complex late in the evening of 5 February U.S. time. We are very
    lucky to have Chris with us so close to launch.

    Chris heads up the solar wind analyser part of the mission:

    "We’ve been developing three sensors that will analyse particles in the
    solar wind – streams of particles that are ejected by the Sun at speeds
    of up to 3 million kilometres an hour and temperatures up to a million
    degrees Celsius. We want to know more about the make up and behaviour of
    these particle streams."

    The engineering challenges are extreme with, for example, huge
    temperature differences between the shaded and sunlit parts of the
    orbiter.

    Chris is that rare character combining an excellent engineer with first
    rate organisational, people, management and communication skills.

    She sets an example to us as radio amateurs being passionate about
    encouraging newcomers into the field of science and technology.

    Copious refreshments to be provided as usual.
