OK- I have browsed the on-line ham stores and have seen the 144/222/440 transceivers and all, and now wonder where all the equipment is for the bands higher than those-
the ARRL band plan lists 33 cm, 23 cm, and then shows 2300-2310 MHz
2390-2450 MHz
3300-3500 MHz
5650-5925 MHz
10.0-10.5 GHz
24.0-24.25 GHz
47.0-47.2 GHz
76.0-81.0 GHz
122.25-123.0 GHz
134-141 GHz
241-250 GHz
All above 275 GHz
as authorized frequencies -

how does one get on these higher bands?

Thanks

These are very specialized frequencies requiring very specialized equipment.

DEM (Down East Microwave) and a few other specialty houses to manufacturer transverters and other equipment to take you up to 24 GHz.

A lot of the "higher band" stuff (SHF-EHF-microwaves) hams use is modified commercial/military surplus gear, because components and machining required to homebrew from "scratch" can be very, very expensive.

It's often cheaper to buy a surplus microwave setup and convert it for amateur band use than it would be to build it from scratch unless you have an amazing array of unusual parts and a great machine shop.
