What experimentation ? It has all been done before. I have a good
installation suitable for working any station that appears on the band. If
you are still struggling and fumbling on the band do not object to others
that want to progress further, encouraging others to the band. I want 100 or
more stations active on 136 khz so that I can get the DXCC score up. You
obviously have not heard of G3KEV before and the number of countries worked
especially on normal CW. I cannot say I have heard you on the LF bands, keep
There is a decline on 136 khz activity this past couple of years just the
opposite to what you are saying, it does not seem to be encouraging any new
amateurs, in fact the opposite. When CW is mentioned as the main mode on the
band most enquiring amateurs turn in the opposite direction.
