The Midwest VHF/UHF Society brings together hams with strong interest in building and experimenting at the higher frequencies including microwaves & light. The society provides exchange of ideas with monthly meetings and a technically oriented newsletter (called Anomalous Propagation). Noise figure and antenna measurements are performed at the Hamvention or on demand. Building projects are undertaken and surplus or special parts are procured. The society has presently 90 members, most from the tristate area (OH,KY,IN) but also from other parts of the US. Why don't you join us, membership is $ 10.- per year (foreign $ 18.-). Mail your check (made out to Gerd Schrick) with name/call, address & telephone number to: Gerd Schrick, WB8IFM, 4741 Harlou Dr. Dayton OH 45432.

The Society meetings are on the 4th Friday of the month at 7pm except for May, July, and December when the Hamvention, Central States Convention and the Christmas Party take their place. The meetings are held at the Perkins restaurant located at the NE-corner of I-75 SR 73.

The Newsletter appears monthly except for May, July and December.

Anomalous Propagation is the monthly newsletter of ‘The Midwest VHF/UHF Society’, and subscription is part of the annual dues of the Society which is $10.-, payable by check or money order to:

Gerd Schrick (WB8IFM)

Besides news directly relating to the Society's activities, ‘Anomalous Propagation’ carries technical articles written by experimenters in the frequency range from VHF through light. Featuring reprints of work being done in other parts of the country with publications that we have exchange agreements with. Occasionally we have commercially produced equipment reviews, but the overwhelming majority of our equipment articles concern work done by hard core home-brewers.

Many articles are tutorial in nature, and occasionally there are results of various operating or construction competitions that many of the Society's members engage in.

The Newsletter appears monthly except for May, July and December.

Achtung ! Check your label for dues payment !

For the rest of the articles, please become a member today! We hope we can continue to bring you most of the articles as listed in our newsletter. Send an e-mail to the, the webmaster for details. Thanks!
