    The Magic Bands by Don Field

    20:00Own Shack Via Zoom

    Bury Radio Society invite us to share this talk via Zoom: ID 773 073 0073

    Don Field G3XTT will take us through the fascinating properties of the 6m and 4m Bands which results in people calling them "The Magic Bands".

    The propagation properties of these bands, as they are nestled between the HF bands and the VHF bands, give remarkable and often unexpected results.

    These propagation properties attract enthusiasts who seek out these often unpredictable properties but with incredible results.

    Don has also written the book, "The Magic Bands" which covers 6m and 4m. The book is available from the RSGB, Practical Wireless and Amazon.

    Don Field G3XTT is a well-known person in amateur radio, having been on the board of the RSGB, carried out DXPeditions, and is the editor of Practical Wireless.
