CAT meetings

The BATC organises conventions known as CAT (Convention for Amateur Television) at locations around the UK.

CAT 20 was held  Saturday 24 October 2020 but due to COVID 19, it was an online event.

Videos of all the talks are now available on the BATC Youtube channel.

We hope to return to the Midland Air Museum in Coventry for a meeting in 2021.
