Dear Steve and All,
let me tell you a little bit about DI2AG on 440Khz. I am ham now since 51years
and was always interested in HF-propagation, from UHF to LF and MW as well. As
we do not have an amateur radio location on MW I asked the the german
authorities for a special permit with low power and only very small band
operation - CW, QRSS, DFCW, PSK....... And I got it. 9W ERP, 200Hz bandwidth,
440KHz. The permit is valid to the end of 2005, maybe it can be prolonged.
Mostly DI2AG operates as a beacon on 440.044KHz in QRSS3 with 0.5W ERP,
sometimes at weekend or on request with 3W ERP. Got reports from 14 european
countries ( sorry, not VE, W ), ODX is 2463Km to TF.
But please realize: DI2AG is no amateur radio application, the "DI"-prefix is
only for research and test. Therefore no amateur radio operation, no duplex and
so on. (But if you send me a sreenshot with reception I will send you
a QSL-card ;-)
Uwe...would this be a proposal for amateur
radio use of the 600m spectrum or for some other purpose?

Former Seefunker in Germany sent a
proposal to RegTP ( Regulierungsbehörde ... ) too.
The proposal is speaking about the use in

Subject: LF: RE: 500KHz/600m
I posted a note to this reflector that was written for the RSGB's
Spectrum Forum the other day - maybe you and others haven't seen
it. The position in the UK is that the RSGB submitted a proposal for
access to frequencies around 500kHz, see http://www.rsgb-spectrumforum.org.uk/mf.htm.
This is fairly self-explainatory. The proposal is still being
considered by our regulator, Ofcom.
Elsewhere, Walter, DJ2LF has a special permit for the current year
for a beacon, DI2AG, that transmits on 440.044kHz.

Could someone bring me up to speed on this
in the UK or elsewhere in Europe? Our Industry Canada liason person is
looking for information to bolster a possible proposal for a 600m
amateur allocation. Any background history would be
