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
other
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.
