Previously, several other countries have authorized temporary allocations or experimental operations on nearby frequencies. The band is in the Medium Frequency MF region, within the greater — Following that, individual regulatory authorities need to implement the change nationally in order to make the allocation available to radio amateurs under their jurisdiction. Recently amateurs have experimented with weak-signal radio communication near In Argentina , amateurs have an allocation of to kHz. All modes are permitted.
Ham Radio Operators Test Propagation at 500 kHz
Radio Story - Preserving kHz
We never share your e-mail address. Content may not be reproduced without written permission. In the years before amateurs in the UK had access to the m band as we know it today kHz , hams there could apply for a 'special research permit' allowing them to operate between and kHz. Nowadays, m activity in Europe is not as robust as it once was but Finbar is still active on MF from his modest station.
Search the KC web site:. This web site was updated on 31 March at UTC. Operation on the new band cannot begin immediately, because PLC coordination between Amateur stations and the Utilities Telecom Council UTC is required prior to the Amareur station beginning transmissions.
While many spectrum users are exploring higher frequencies in the search for increased bandwidth, a group of ham radio operators, operating under an experimental FCC license, are investigating propagation at kHz, just below the U. AM broadcast band. Already, 11 stations are on the air. A total of 21 stations are allowed under the license, which runs for two years.
