Steve Davies, G4KNZ, is on of the UK's keenest millimetre wave operators. He has narrowband and wideband equipment for 24 and 47GHz and currently holds the UK 47GHz record.
His talk at Martlesham described the 1998 UK trends on both bands. The progress to all narrowband operation on 24GHz is just about complete, with only 1 totally wideband station left at present . The 47GHz band has seen very slow progress this year with around a dozen stations known to have equipment, mainly 100mW wideband transceivers and a few narrowband ones. Very few 47GHz contacts have been made so far and no entries have been made in the year's contests.
Much more on these two bands, including updated material, is available at Steve's own website and on pages elsewhere at this site
