Experimental Stations to Transmit Field Day Greetings on 630 Meters

06/25/2014

To promote awareness of the 630 meter band, several radio amateurs with FCC Part 5 experimental licenses — including a couple who are associated with the ARRL 600 Meter Experimental Group — will transmit Field Day greetings in CW on 630 meters throughout Field Day weekend, June 28-29.

These include WG2XKA (WA3ETD operator), running 1 W ERP on 472.5 kHz from Vermont; WG2XJM (NO3M operator), running 20-30 W ERP on 473.0 kHz from Pennsylvania; WG2XIQ (KB5NJD operator), running 1 W ERP on 474.0 kHz from Texas; WD2XSH/20 (N6LF operator), running 20 W ERP on 475.0 kHz from Oregon, and WE2XPQ (KL7L operator), running 50 W ERP on 472.00 kHz from Alaska.

Field Day stations may try using an HF transceiver capable covering the 472-479 kHz range to listen for these stations and others. Send reception reports to the individual operators. — Thanks to John Langridge, KB5NJD/WG2XIQ, via QRZ.com
