Microwave meeting in EDR Horsens

Today I attended a microwave meeting in Horsens, Denmark. The radio club EDR Horsens  hosted the meeting. The aim was to introduce the participants to microwaves: 10 GHz, 24 GHz, and 47 GHz. Most participants came from Denmark, but there was also one person from Norway and two from Germany.

During the first part of the meeting, there were lectures on different subjects:
  • Microwave measuring techniques (by OZ2OE)
  • How I started on 10 GHz (by OZ7Z)
  • How OZ5TG  transformed an obsolete radar system into a big EME station
The afternoon was dedicated microwave communication in the field. Most participants drove to a nearby "mountain" called Ejer Bavnehoj (JO45VX). This location is 170 meters above sea level and the third-highest natural point in Denmark. Most stations operated from the brick tower situated on top of the "mountain". All stations used battery power.

The microwave meeting in EDR Horsens was a great succes. Good food, nice people, quality lectures, and successful microwaving in the field - what more can you want?
