As in previous years there will be facilities to check frequency and
noise figure of equipment and of course there will be the ever popular

connectors. If anything else is used then they may have to accept some
adaptor loss inaccuracies.

There will be guided tours of the Surrey Space Centre at the University with
the satellite mission control centre and the satellite assembly facility.

The event is open to all Amateurs and SWL's. Either Day passes or full 
packages covering overnight accomodation and meals at the University are
