Club Night 29th July 2016 – Over The Horizon Radar by Andy Tyler, G1GKN
Andy G1GKN gave a very interesting talk on Over the Horizon Radar explaining why we should care about OTHR? Like it or not we are forced to share our allocated HF bands with it. The transmitters can be very powerful, up to 40MW in some cases. OTHR operators have a total disregard for band plans, using any frequency that suits them. OTHR are often secret projects, which restricts what authorities can do to stop them. Indeed many countries deny that such systems exist.

Warning – up to date on the 26 January.
