Saturday Microwaves 101 Program
Getting Started and Having Fun on the Microwave Bands 


If you’re looking for new operating challenges beyond the VHF and UHF bands, why not consider the super-high frequency (SHF) bands, also known as the microwaves? Join CSVHFS life members and microwave enthusiasts Bruce Richardson, W9FZ, and Janice Hoettels, KA9VVQ, for a 1.5 hour presentation about getting started and having fun operating on the microwave bands. Topics that will be discussed include: the equipment needed to operate at microwave frequencies, the skills necessary to effectively operate a microwave station, microwave propagation, and operating activities available on the microwave bands. Following the presentation, Bruce and Janice will demonstrate all of the concepts discussed using their 10 GHz dish rigs.
