New 122 and 241GHz UK records

| June 9, 2017

The existing 122GHz and 241GHz UK distance records were both extended to new distance of 6.8km with two-way contacts in CW between John Hazell, G8ACE, operating from his home, to Ian Lamb, G8KQW/P located at Shroner Wood, Winchester.

The contact took place on Sunday, 21 May.

Transmit power levels were around 200 microwatts at both ends on both bands, and the antennas were 30cm dishes with separate 122GHz and 241GHz feed horns.

RST was 539 each way on both bands.

You can see the contacts thanks to the video uploaded to YouTube by John—see for details.
