I am as keen as anyone to encourage more activity on the LF bands 136 and 73Khz.
It has always been the aim of amateurs to improve their stations by attempting DX contacts.A band without DX is less intresting.
I belive that my Beacon activities last winter helped to promote interest in 136,especially in the USA. More people were encouraged to look for the signals and to improve ants. etc. Finally T/A communication was accomplished, not all my work of course but at least the band has been proved to be capable of supporting long distance communication and must therefore be more intresting to newcomers.I am still running the beacon from time to time in the summer in order to try and understand  propagation further .Surely this  additional activity  is valuable even in the UK and EU for setting up and testing I dont think I have ever caused interference to stations 100 Hz above me. If I have let me know. 73s Laurie.
