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 $12.00 per year, or $16 if delivered by USPS. Mail your check (made out to Joe Muchnij) with name/call, address & telephone number to: Joe Muchnij, N8QOD, 1214 Cottingwood Ct., Bellbrook, OH 45305-8765.

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