    Ian GM3SEK is giving an online talk on the application of the RSGB-Ofcom Calculator to Microwaves and QO-100 satellite operation on Saturday,
    October 16, at 1230 GMT (1:30pm BST)

    John G3XDY, Secretary UK Microwave Group, writes:

    As I expect you are aware, UK stations must have Electromagnetic Field
    (EMF) assessments in place for operation above 110 MHz from 18th November
    2021. Some RSGB guidance on EMF is here:


    The RSGB has been developing a tool that incorporates the Ofcom EMF
    Calculator but extends the models to include single and multiple Yagis plus various sizes of dish antennas, and takes account of the directivity of the antenna.

    Ian GM3SEK, a key member of the team that developed the spreadsheet tool,
    will be talking about its application to Microwaves and QO-100 operation on 16th October at 13:30pm, in a joint BATC/UK Microwave Group presentation
    during the BATC Convention.

    Registration is not required, to view the talk just go to https://batc.org.uk/live/cat21

    Full details of the BATC CAT21 program are available here


    This is an important topic for all that operate on VHF and above, and Ian
    will dispense invaluable practical advice on how to assess your dishes and Yagis in the microwave bands. Not to be missed!
