this coming Sunday 21st February, (from 10am to 12noon AEDST) is the inaugural 3.4 GHz QSO party, an idea from the Geelong ARC to promote activity on the 3.4 GHz (9cm) band, based on the recent source of ex-commercial surplused panels which have been modified to 3.4 GHz.
There will be a group in Geelong area, some more in VK5 and a group in Sydney basin to try and make as many contacts as possible. In Sydney we have VK2JDS coming down from Bathurst to operate from Kurrajong Heights, matt VK2DAG and Gary VK2KYP up Central Coast, Nick VK2FS, Geoff VK2AVR operating from Terrey Hills and I to operate from North Head.
Not sure if the Brisbane microwave guys have got their panels converted and operational yet.
For those interested in gettng onto 3.4GHz the Geelong ARC now have some more panels for sale, see
