This Week in Amateur Radio

North America's Premiere Amateur Radio News Magazine

via the RSGB: Presentations released on VHF airborne radar and WRTC 26

The RSGB has released a further three presentations from its 2023 Convention.

In the first, Professor Simon Watts, G3XXH gives a fascinating presentation about VHF airborne radar and the design and performance of these early systems in World War II.

The other two presentations focus on the World Radiosport Team Championship which the UK will be hosting in 2026. The WRTC is held every four years and is considered to be the Olympic Games of radio contesting.

At the RSGB Convention, WRTC Chair Mark Haynes, M0DXR gave an overview of what is being planned and how people can get involved either as a spectator, volunteer, competitor or referee. John Warburton, G4IRN gave his perspective on what it is like to be a WRTC referee.

The full WRTC planning team also gave an update recently on an RSGB’s Tonight@8 live webinar.

You can see all of these presentations on the RSGB YouTube channel
