Abstract: Let $ko$ be the real connective K-theory spectrum. We compute $ko_*BG$ and $ko^*BG$ for groups $G$ whose Sylow 2-subgroup is quaternion of order 8. Using this we compute the coefficients $t(ko)^G_*$ of the $G$ fixed points of the Tate spectrum $t(ko)$ for $G = Sl_2(3)$ and $G = Q_8$. The results provide a counterexample to the optimistic conjecture of Greenlees and May [9, Conj. 13.4], by showing, in particular, that $t(ko)^G$ is not a wedge of Eilenberg-Mac Lane spectra, as occurs for groups of prime order.
