In terms of suggestions, on the already excellent tools page, would it be possible to add html version calculators of such classics
as “vertload” “tant” etc. Sadly most of these only run on 32bit versions of Windows and if one is lucky to have a 64 bit machine with W7 or higher then they don’t run.
Also a “useful files page” e.g. Stefan has an excellent spreadsheet (which he sent to me, but it’s his work so not mine to forward)
that calculates all manner of antenna and power parameters at VLF thru MF. Perhaps we could persuade “The dark lord of Heidelberg” to upload that! Also, John and the chaps in the US have sent me some very handy schematics of how to interface Hafler audio
amps to txs, again many on here will already know this stuff “inside out” but it might be useful for newcomers?
A download page giving links to Winrad and such like?
A link or page on VLF? Dreamers band?
Given the demise of cycle 24 and predictions that C25 will be worse for higher HF bands, then this may encourage some to try their hand
at the low ends!
Just a few rambling musings and it’s a great site! Already bookmarked!!!
over the past weeks Alan, G3NYK, did write an excellent article on propagation, that is now added to the 472kHz.org website (under technical topics
Anyone who wants to contribute in his field of expertise is most welcome. Just contact me. I will be happy to do the layout , have the grammar checked
and help with pictures.

I have set up a small website about the 472 kHz band. The goal is:
- For newbie's: to provide some basic information about this band, in the hope that this will attact "fresh blood".
- For the habitue's: some tools that might make operating on 472 kHz more interesting (and thus increasing activity).
Feel free to have a look at
All suggestions how the content of this site can be improved are welcome.
