The theme of British Science Week this year is Time. Both time and the closely related concept of frequency, are of vital importance to radio communications.
The RSGB has announced a new challenge for British Science Week linked to this theme. The challenge has categories for every age group and the winner of each group will win a prize.
The deadline for entries is 1 September and the results will be announced at the RSGB Convention in October.
The challenge is as follows:
“Using readily available components, material or other resources, provide a method of either measuring the frequency of a radio frequency source or signal, or providing a time reference to a radio operator or radio system”.
