As an update for you, we will shortly publicise a November talk on IoT using a satellite link to be presented by Les Davey. We may also have a talk coming up on RF front-ends for 5G by an MTT Society Distinguished lecturer, but that is yet to be confirmed.

We have emailed our AP-MTT Chapter members asking whether people would like to volunteer for the Chapter Committee. So far we have two extra people coming on board. There is still an opportunity for you to join, so send us an email before Sunday 27 October. After this we’ll announce all of the volunteers on the Committee.

The IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society has put out a call for students wanting to take part in an 2020 IEEE AP-S Student Design Contest on “Radar applications in everyday life“. For further information have a look at this IEEE/URSI information. The deadline for this is 30 November. If you’d like to discuss it, please feel free to contact us.

The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society is also inviting applications for the IEEE AP-S Doctoral Research Grants and IEEE AP-S Eugene F. Knott Memorial Pre-Doctoral Research Grants for the 2019-20 academic year. The formal program announcement with application details is available at the IEEE AP-S web site (https://www.ieeeaps.org) or directly at https://www.ieeeaps.org/15-homepage/468-doctoral-research-grants-and-eugene-f-knott-memorial-pre-doctoral-research-grants

Finally MTT-S is offering up to ten undergraduate / post-graduate fellowships – have a look at this link for more information
