  I checked the AMRAD site, technically the Bobek award is for "The LF Transatlantic Challenge is pair of Trophies for the first two-way Europe-USA 136 kHz contact once the band is allocated to the Amateur Radio Service by the FCC (assuming that happens)"
  Since the FCC has not allocated 136 for the amateur service, the question is would the sponsoring organizations recognize an experimental Part 5 U.S. station contacting a European amateur station as a valid contact?
  Award or no, I'm keen to give it a go.
Happy Christmas!

  Thank you for the capture! I'm very pleased with the results. I just acquired a Decca Tx, and it will take a few weeks for me to make the modifications, power supply etc. That should give me a considerably better signal (+7dB or so).
 Assuming that goes well, I'd be interested in knowing if there any stations 'across the pond' available for a two-way QSO?

Lots I should think.
BTW........has a claim been made for the AMRAD / RSGB / DARC transatlantic prize for the first QSO with the USA?
I remember  UK to canada was awarded to 4 stations with a 'joint first' but do I recall there was a seperate catagory for 'USA' as opposed to 'NA'?
Anyway, seems the licensing arrangements will finally allow a 2 way to happen.
Good luck...............
