The first UK applicant to get a 500kHz SRP has to buy the beers. (Won't be
me...I haven't yet figured out how to measure the field strength inside my
neighbour's siting-room, will it interfere with his toaster, etc)

Hi John and the list,

     Congratulations on your new experimental allocation!   I see that Ofcom
is restricting your experiment to very low power levels:

"In general, considerably lower e.r.p. levels than that permitted in the 136
kHz band are likely to be favourable and this will only be permitted where
it can be demonstrated that increased powers are necessary for research. On
no account will an e.r.p. level of greater than � 10 dBW be permitted under
any circumstance."

  This will pretty much preclude transatlantic work, except possibly for
QRS, which is a pity.  I wonder what it is that Ofcom is worried about
interfering with?  The U.S. experimental stations are limited to 20 watts
erp, which is 23dB more than Ofcom is allow U.K. amateurs.
