Hi Dave the news from the LowFer reflector of the LWCA is that the FCC
always allocate a call early in the process....the general concenus is that
it will take another 9 months to get the go-ahead to "warm the worms up".

Subject: LF: FCC ASSIGNS CALL LETTERS TO ARRL 600 METER EXPERIMENTAL GROUP
Slightly off topic (HF of topic?) - this was on the G3EFX Yahoo Group:-
"The FCC has given the go-ahead for Amateur Experimental operation on 600
- 500 kHz.
See http://500kc.com/ for full details.
FCC ASSIGNS CALL LETTERS TO ARRL 600 METER EXPERIMENTAL GROUP
Wednesday, 22 June 2005 - Washington, D.C. - The Federal Communications
Commission has issued the call letters WD2XSH for the 600 Meter Part 5
Experimental operations to be conducted by the ARRL 600 Meter Experimental
Group. The actual grant of license will be done in the normal course of
operations by the FCC.
In the meantime, it is reported that members of the Experimental Group are
melting solder, tuning transmitters, stringing feedlines, and polishing
keys in eager anticipation of the issuance of the license itself, which
allow then to commence operations on 600 Meters.
All operations will necessarily adhere to the Part 5 rules and to the
plan of research specified in the license application. Results of the
will be forwarded to the Commission and posted on this web site. When
transmissions actually commence, we will post a notice on this web page.
Reception reports of the transmissions made by Group participants are
requested. You do not have to be a member of this group to send us a
report. Please use the link at the left side of this web page to enter
More information as it becomes available, so stay tuned - to 600 Meters,
