I will be presenting a talk entitled '136 kHz DXing From A Small
Back Garden' to the members of the Trowbridge & District Amateur
Radio Club at 8.00pm on May 2nd.
It will be the first time that I have done such a presentation,
and I trust that it will be good enough to encourage some more
activity on LF.
Excellent Steve, I wish you good luck and a large and attentive audience.
I have presented talks on LF several times already at different places in
our country and found it very rewarding
It is well pay some attention to the receive side because that is where
newcomers have to start on.
Explaining that my 2 x 20m dipole with 11m open feeder working as a
T-aerial on 137kHz is the equivalent of a T-aerial of 2 x 75cm and a
vertical leg of 40cm working on 80 metres makes it easy to understand for
the audience why the aerial has such low efficiency!.

stations heard on 136 kHz.
An excellent idea, the audio tape, that I will incorporate in my coming
talks! There are two already planned.
Thanks Dave and Steve for the hint!
