Tuesday 30th May we held the Annual Construction Contest, with four very strong entries, each provoking much discussion. The voting was very close with Mark M6VMS taking the trophy for 2017, with his portable setup for outdoor activations. The other 3 entries were all tied for second place with a couple of votes each. Luke had built a microprocessor/SDR-based spectrum analyser, Kev a 512 LED sound-to-light array (8 X 8 X 8), again microprocessor based. Stewart show-cased his phase noise cancellation system, now on its third iteration, with a fourth in development.

The Construction Contest trophy has been engraved and now needs presenting to Mark.
