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 

  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.
