12.06.23 -- The HF And VHF Renaissance

Understanding VHF Propagation

Explore four crucial but uncommon VHF propagation modes: tropospheric ducting, sporadic E, meteor burst, and Earth-Moon-Earth (EME). Understanding these modes is essential for optimizing VHF applications, as they extend beyond the conventional line-of-sight concept, impacting various communication scenarios.


The Rebirth Of HF

Recent technological advancements have helped to bring about a renewed interest or "rebirth" in the use of high-frequency, or HF, propagation. Explore the unique properties of HF that enable global communications. 


On-Demand Webinar: The Rebirth Of HF

The "lost art" of HF is not only still relevant, but has been making a comeback in recent years, particularly in the area of both local and global communications. Discover how and why in this on-demand webinar.


Understanding Near Vertical Incidence Skywave (NVIS)

Take an in-depth look at the superior suitability of NVIS for military, disaster relief, and ad hoc scenarios. Explore its principles, strengths, and weaknesses, with a focus on distinctions from low-angle HF skywave antennas and diverse NVIS implementation methods using antennas.


On-Demand Webinar: Understanding VHF Propagation

This discussion challenges the common belief of VHF propagation being solely "line of sight," exploring various propagation modes such as refraction, reflection, diffraction, scattering, EME, and more with practical examples and a live Q&A.


Understanding NVIS

Enhance your understanding of near vertical incidence skywave (NVIS) with a brief overview of HF and common HF propagation modes, the technical principles of NVIS, different types of antennas for NVIS operation, and the operational aspects of NVIS.
