The Nordic Radio Society (a foundation cooperating with the Swedish National Committee of URSI) invites authors and participants to the HF 98 nordic HF conference on "HF towards the 21st century". Topics focus on communication beyond the horizon, with emphasis on HF radio.

HF communication technology has advanced substantially over the last few years, with significant trends towards a higher degree of automation and signal processing, which can now be cost-effectively implemented to achieve affordable performance even in small systems.

The conference will cover new progress in the field of research, development and equipment. There will also be an exhibition of equipment, systems and demonstration.

Dr Paul Cannon of the Defence Evaluation & Research Agency, UK has been invited to cover advancements in wave propagation modelling and its effect on radio design and development.
