Microwave Update 2018
Dayton, Ohio, October 11 – 14, 2018
Holiday Inn, Fairborn, Ohio

Microwave Update (MUD) is an international conference dedicated to 
microwave equipment design, construction, and operation. It is focused 
on, but not limited to, amateur radio on the microwave bands. The 
Midwest VHF/UHF Society is pleased to host this year's event. The 
conference will be held at the Holiday Inn, 2800 Presidential Drive, 
Fairborn, Ohio 45324.

Call for Presentations and Papers: The program committee is calling for 
papers and presentations on the technical and operational aspects of 
microwave amateur radio communications. Tell us about your latest 
project, design or operating adventures. Please e-mail your proposals, 
questions, and submissions to John Ackermann, N8UR, at jra at febo.com. 
Don't wait until the beginning of September to let us know what you're 

Presentations selected for the technical program may be given in person 
or by proxy. Please send an abstract and expected duration no later than 
August 25, 2018 so that we can determine and announce the program agenda 
the following week. Ideally, send your draft presentation by the same 
date. We encourage presenters to submit a companion paper for 
publication in the proceedings book. This paper would ideally be text 
based and expand on the presentation slides, but a simple copy of the 
slides is also okay. Either way, this material must be received no later 
than September 1, 2018 to be included in the book. Additional material 
(presentation slides, schematics, source code, more text, background 
info, etc.) to be included on the proceedings CD must arrive no later 
than September 25, 2018.  All conference attendees will receive a copy 
of the book and CD.

Full details, including suggested topics, paper guidelines, schedule, 
and hotel information can be found on the MUD website:
