The ARMMS RF & Microwave Society is an independent professional society comprised of individuals with an interest in the design, production and measurement of devices and products operating at RF and Microwave frequencies.  The Society serves as a focal point for discussions on a wide range of topics, particularly aspects relating to design, practical implementation, CAD and measurement.

Two meetings are held each year in the style of a small conference and associated exhibition.  A wide range of technical papers is presented and proceedings are distributed to each delegate.  A highlight of each meeting is the Society dinner, which provides an invaluable opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues.
