| March 15, 2023

Barry’s presentation

Barry Lewis, G4SJH, RSGB Microwave Manager, will talk about taking part in microwave and millimetre wave band contests at 23cm and above.

The frequency bands, organised contest activity sessions, special rules and equipment aspects will be covered.

Although similar to contesting in the VHF and UHF bands, some aspects bring additional challenges and these will be discussed along with the awards and trophies that can be won.
