UPd2Al3 is a heavy fermion superconductor with Tc ≊ 2 K co-existent with an antiferromagnetically ordered state (TN = 14.5 K. We report the angular dependence of the dHvA frequency, the effective cyclotron mass and the Dingle temperature. A comparison of the experimental results with band-structure calculations is made, revealing that 5f electrons in UPd2Al3 are fairly itinerant.
