Several suggestions were made as to how to encourage newcomers onto
136kHz. It
was felt that once active, stations were reasonably well looked after by
band users. ...
Suggestions were:
* Run a contest, or series of cumulative contests, perhaps as part of the RSGB's "LF Cumulatives" which run on 160, 80 and 40m.
I don't know if a 'traditional' contest is such a good idea. If might end
up with only hearing a few strong stations CQ'ing forever while all weak
(and interesting) signals are down in QRM. I think that 2kHz is just too
less space for a contest unless we work out some rules that prevent certain
(strong) stations to occupy a frequency all the time. For instance we could include that after a QSO the station that called CQ
has to leave the frequency . The same rule should apply for a station that
is calling CQ for certain time (eg. 2 minutes) without anyone responding.
Maybe we even should enforce a 'dead time' of a few minutes after each QSO.
