Success with Ham Radio on 122GHz

Harry WA0CNS and myself went outdoors to play with our new 122GHz units (about 500 microW of output power, 19dBi horn antenna on my side) on Saturday, November 7, 2020. We managed to make full contact using CW signals (Morse code) across the distance of 5.2 km (3.2 mile):

This frequency is extremely difficult, signal propagation depends heavily on moisture in the air. In theory, it should work better during winter months. We will keep trying for longer distances!

Some pictures of the stations used:

More details about our attempts on this contact can be found here (click on the link).
