New 122GHz and 241GHz UK Distance Records

The existing 122GHz and 241GHz UK distance records were both extended to a new distance of 6.8km with two-way contacts in CW from John Hazell G8ACE home QTH to Ian Lamb G8KQW/P located at Shroner Wood, Winchester, Hampshire on Sunday 28th May 2017.

Earlier in the day, a shorter path of 3.8km was worked at RST 559 on both bands to confirm the equipment set-up.

Transmit power levels were ~200uW at both ends on both bands and the antennas were 0.3m dishes with separate 122GHz and 241GHz feed horns, RST 539 each way on both bands.
