ARLX061 Call for microwave hams

A professional microwave engineering group will include Amateur
Radio for the first time in its symposium.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' Microwave
Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTTS) will hold its 1996
International Microwave Engineering Symposium in San Francisco June
17 to 21, 1996.  The sponsors have approved and will officially
sponsor a microwave Amateur Radio reception and swap meet, according
to Jeffrey Pawlan, WA6KBL, who is active in the Society.

Licensed amateurs who have a bona fide interest in VHF-microwave
experimentation as well as all Symposium attendees will be invited
to the reception.

Also planned for the reception are live demonstrations of attendees'
microwave equipment and antennas.  The organizers hope to arrange
live 2-way demonstrations of amateur stations on all bands from 2.4
to 76 GHz.  Amateur Radio microwave clubs also are invited to
display information on their activities, members' stations, and
newsletters.

Those interested in participating should contact Pawlan as follows:

408-371-4302; or write to 14908 Sandy Lane, San Jose, CA 95124.
