On Sunday afternoon 28/5-2023 we got a new Swedish record on 122GHz @ 55.09 km!

The first attempt this day was made from Ånnaboda J079LI30RD to the wind turbine close to Kumla JO79NE30WN. The distance between them is 20.71 km. Here SM0RJV Mats, SM0BSO Peter, SM0ERR Mart and SM0DFP Per, all with suffix /4 succeeded to get 579 - 599 reports in both directions with SM6AFV/4 Jens at the wind turbine.

Thank you for attending the meeting! We have now updated the front page with some info from the meeting. This will probably be the last info from us on these pages.

Well, one thing remains and that is to collect the presentations from the presenters. They will be published here under each presentation, and when all received also zipped and made available as a complete set.

Now it is not many days until we meet in Ånnaboda. We in the organization committee are working hard, no time for any QSO's :), to make sure that this year of the V/U/SHF meeting will be a great success!

As you might have seen we have some very interesting presentations! We also have the traditional BBQ and the Ham-dinner! All activities can be found in the agenda and on these web-pages.

There are some things we would like to mention:

It is a tradition to set up a measurement room for doing measurement on the all rigs and equipment you bring with you to the V/U/SHF meeting. We will of course do the same this year. We have some ideas already of what we will prepare for. But if you have some more specific requirements or ideas we would like to know about them. As I like forms..., we have prepared a form where you can enter your specific requests.

The attached story from QTC May 1980 was kindly sent to me by SM4CHK P-O, "Oscar". He wrote this article back in 1980 after the antenna measurements that were done at Ånnaboda in June 1979. We have gotten his permission to republish it here. It is written in Swedish but most of you will be able to understand it, I hope!

I has been more than a month since we gave some updates here on the Ånnaboda meeting. For your information the planning is ongoing and we have received some more presentations that will be presented here on these pages soon.

We will also release the form for booking accommodation and other items related to the meeting during the coming weeks.
