Thank you everyone for making this an extremely fantastic meeting! More than 106 hams took part in the meeting during the three days we met in Ånnaboda!

Thank you also our sponsors that supplied all the nice prices in our lottery or borrowed us the instruments. Without your great contributions we would not have been able to get this to fly!

It seems like one of the more interesting exercises was to be able to do measurement on 122GHz using the brand new equipment from Rodhe & Schwarz. Their analyzer and the measurements done using it gather a lot of people. (If anyone is interested in buying one I am sure we can arrange a quotation... :) )

On the Sunday we extended the Swedish record on 122 GHz. When I left we were successfully getting 579 reports between Ånnaboda and Kvarntorpshögen. A distance of 28.97 km! The idea was then to try to extend it to 55.09 km. Hopefully they who were about to try made it!

Finally we are already looking forward to meet you next year in Kalundborg, Denmark @ V/U/SHF 2024!

73 de The organization team!

The fourth presentation to introduce here is by Mats SM0RJV. He will talk about his experiences with the VK3CV 122 GHz transceiver PCB that was made available to HAMs recently. 

Most users will want to connect an external 10MHz OCXO to this board, but it turns out there are many pitfalls that can ruin performance in doing so. However, done properly, a T9 tone is achievable even att this extreme QRG.
