    September Meeting
    Tue 6-Sep-2016, 7.30-10pm
    Oaklands Museum, Moulsham Street
    "Millimetric Microwaves"
    By Chris Whitmarsh G0FDZ

    For September we welcome back Chris Whitmarsh G0FDZ. Many of you will have glanced at the very highest frequencies shown your licence schedule and thought to yourself "Who on earth uses these frequencies?" Well a small but dedicated group of microwave enthusiasts in the UK do and they regularly make QSO's, sometimes at surprisingly long distances and with very low power.

    Chris G0FDZ has been operational on these frequencies for many years and will tell us what goes on, and the techniques used for equipment to use on the bands, where the wavelength is measured not in centimetres but in millimetres - the smallest being just 1.2mm.

    Chris has operational equipment for all of the millimetre-wave bands and will be bring it along to show us, along with his presentation.

    The CARS Raffle and our refreshments are also on offer too!

    Directions / Parking

    You can drive all the way up Moulsham Street from Parkway but NOT the other way.

    Another way is to enter Moulsham Street after going round the Miami Roundabout (by Tesco), then along New London Road 200 yards, turn right into Moulsham Street and after 100 yards turn right again into the Museum.

    NOTE: There is plenty of car parking space but do not park directly in front of the Museum - that is reserved for people unloading kit and Disabled car drivers. Also - take care as there are three severe Sleeping Policeman as well.
