SMEE was formed in 1898 to allow model engineers to exchange experiences and ideas for their mutual benefit.
The Society has developed a number of courses to help both members and those new to the hobby to learn new skills, work safely and gain confidence with the use of their equipment.
WHY JOIN US?
The most important benefit of joining the Society of Model & Experimental Engineers is that it brings you into contact with people having similar interests.

Talk: Gareth Evans
Pictures from Space
Since the mid 1980’s it’s been possible to receive weather pictures from polar orbiting weather satellites. As computer power has improved so has the software and part of Gareth’s talk will explain how it’s done now using cheap electronics and an aerial to suit. Depending on passing satellites it may be possible to demonstrate a live picture. The second part of the talk will expand on receiving Amateur Radio Digital TV signals from a new geostationary satellite (Gareth’s transmitter system for this was displayed at the 2019 competition). Depending on sky visibility from the Marshall House back yard, live pictures may also be possible
