I was very honoured to be invited to present one of the talks at the 2006 Rochdale GQRP Mini-convention, the biggest annual event in the GQRP Club calendar! I felt so honoured, that this time I even managed to prepare a slideshow powerpoint presentation. Below are some pictures from the event, which was held at St Aidan's Parish Church, Rochdale (near Manchester).

What a venue! I took this photo from the back of the church while the audience were gathering. Again I had a substantial collection of homebrew equipment on show to attempt to distract the audience from my bad talking.
Here's the title of my powerpoint presentation, "The QRP Constructor". That was a recent picture of my workbench as of about September 2006.
Here I am at the "after-show party" in George G3RJV's house. I set up my radio in George's shack on his antenna and had several enjoyable QSO's on 80m CW with my Polyphase RX and one-valve TX.
Of course, I had to get George G3RJV to pose for a photo at the key. George has a very impressive array of equipment there in his shack, much of it homebrew. Thanks for hosting a fantastic event, George!
Here's a rare (actually unique) photo of me actually in the middle of a QSO. I believe that's John G8SEQ looking on (err, listening on) at the left of the picture.
Finally a photo of the main GQRP-club convention in the church hall. Many familiar faces here! Don't miss Steve GW4ALG looking smart in his shirt and blue tie in the foreground.
