I have sent the e-mail address of Andy Guye, F6CNI, to Mark, F6JSZ as requested.
I felt that this is a good time to recount Andy's contribution to LF
in spite of difficulties in getting a 136kHz allocation in France.
Andy has been very keen on low frequency operation for some time now.
My first crossband QSO (my signal on 137kHz and listening on 80m) was
on 14/3/98 after some e-mail exchange following a signal report of my
136 signals.
I have also had a 73kHz/80m crossband QSO on 22/3/98, where Andy
received my signals 539 on fast CW. This was the first QSO involving
73kHz outside the UK. The distance between us is 337.5km and may be a
record for receiving fast CW on 73kHz.
I have also had a crossband 136 QSO with Andy's 90 year old father,
F8DB on 4/4/98
Andy's large loop receiver antenna setup has been included in the LF
Chapter of the RSGB Communication Handbook (Receiver Amplifier and
Loop Antenna for 136kHz).
