Thanks to Chris, G0FDZ for giving a fascinating talk to the club this Wednesday on the microwave bands. Chris is one of the few amateurs in the UK that is operational on the bands up to 241GHz, what he calls the other ‘Top Band’. On display were three of his homebuilt transverters, some of which are dual band capable, covering in total 24GHz, 47GHz, 76GHz, 134GHz and 241GHz. All using an FT-817 as an IF.
Chris is very knowledgeable in this area and has put lots of time and effort into his projects, which is fantastic to see. Below are a few photos of his various transverters from the front.
The club would like to thank Chris for the excellent talk that he gave and we wish him good luck in venturing into the sub 1mm bands as and when they become available in the UK!
