Amateur Microwave It's easier than you think 2024

Amateur Microwave It's easier than you think 2024

This is the 2024 update of "Amateur Microwave It's easier than you think" Since the first edition of this video, Icom has released the IC-905 SHF transceiver. This has added a level of simplicity for those keen to get on the higher bands. It's now included in this video along with new portable operations. Microwaves are the highest frequency radio bands in Amature Radio. It's the final frontier for many amateur radio operators offering unique challenges with big rewards. This video was made to inspire and encourage the use of these bands. The demands on the spectrum around the world from commercial users have never been so great. If we want to keep these bands, we have to use them.
