The bulletin this month is a short  one. Lots of people have been off on
their summer holidays or getting ready for EMF camp.

   ---===( NEXT MEETING: THURSDAY 13 SEPTEMBER 2018 AT 18:00 )===---

It looks  likely that  this will  be the  last hilltop  get-together, at
least  for 2018.  As  usual,  we'll meet  by  the  Royal Observatory  in
Greenwich,  nearish the  clock. Everyone  is welcome  - look  for bikes,
antennas,  that sort  of  thing.  If you  get  lost,  someone should  be
listening  out  on  433.500MHz.  We  even  have  an  object  on  APRS  -
https://aprs.fi/info/a/HACKRS -  look for  HACKRS. Being  September, the
meeting will likely be a bit darker and damper than usual. It might even
rain, so check the wiki page (URL  in the header) to check whether we've
decided to go to a pub instead.

=> Note the earlier time of 18:00; this is to allow for the fact that <=
=> the van to throw us out of the park appears at 20:00 in September! <=

                     ---===( HACKSPACE NEWS )===---

The hackspace continues to update  and regenerate. Everything is now out
of storage  and at the new  space in Wembley. The  regular open evenings
have started again on Tuesdays at 7pm  at 388 High Road, Wembley HA9 6AR
(Tube/Train: Wembley Central, Wembley Stadium). The space is still under
refurbishment and  help is  always very welcome.  If you  are interested
check the wiki or mailing list.

                      ---===( NETWORK MAP )===---

The network map shows the users  interested in connecting via packet and
the success with which they have reported establishing connections.
