Subject: Re: LF: VE3ZJ

Worked VE3ZJ last nite but this time on 7 mhz CW in the BERU contest.
He was a big signal. It looks like most of the LF ops have moved HF. I
have worked quite a number of ex LF ops this past year on HF. This is
where I spend most of my time these days and having a lot of fun just
like the old days.
I am waiting for a 100 countries to start up on 136khz so that I can
chase DXCC on LF, until then its HF and satellite dxing.
Oh dear.

136kHz, like 73kHz and the microwave bands is primarily about experimentation. This is the spirit of the band, if someone comes on the band looking for another single band DXCC certificate or whatever then I am saddened, this is not what its about. LF belongs to experimenters who run tests and make a note of conditions and try to learn. If you and your friends feel that this is boring then perhaps its not the band for you.
Amateur radio is (or should be) about experimentation and self-training
which seldom comes out of DXCC certificates and rag-chewing. 136kHz is
one of the few bands that encourages amateur radio as it should be.
