UKuG Online Talks
11-Nov-2020 & 9-Dec-2020
Tune in for our online talks on Nov-11 and Dec-9 - all welcome:-
Chris Whitmarsh G0FDZ will be presenting his guide to the millimetre waves in this online talk. He will cover all aspects of the millimetre bands including users, propagation, antennas and feeders, basic equipment for each band to 241 GHz and beyond, and finish with mentioning the use of SDR for identifying weak signals.
There should be something in the talk for everyone from beginner on the millimetre bands to expert. However, there
is no heavy maths or theory to blow your mind!
Bryan G8DKK will be comparing NanoVNAs with other VNAs and looking at VNA architecture and calibration kits.
The talks will be streamed on this URL: batc.org.uk/live/ukmicrowave
