The following has just appeared in today's ARRL Letter:

* 500 kHz Experiment Charting New Territory: The evening of November 
13 saw the first transatlantic contact on 500 kHz between amateur 
experimental stations. US experimental station WE2XGR/2 (Jay 
Rusgrove, W1VD, in Connecticut) and GI4DPE (Finbar O'Connor, EI0CF, 
in Northern Ireland) communicated by standard-speed CW for about 15 
minutes. On that same night, US experimental stations WD2XSH/12 (Mike 
Mussler, AI8Z, in Colorado) and WD2XSH/20 (Rudy Severns, N6LF, in 
Oregon) made the first contact in the western half of the USA. Two 
days later, WE2XGR/2 and GI4DPE repeated their feat and WD2XSH/12 had 
contacts with WD2XSH/6 (Pat Hamel, W5THT, in Mississippi) and 
WD2XSH/13 (John Oehlenschlager, K0JO, in Minnesota). The ARRL 500 kHz 
experimental license, WD2XSH, was issued in September 2006 and has 19 
active stations. Fritz Raab, W1FR, of Vermont, serves as experimental 
project manager for The 500 KC Experimental Group for Amateur Radio 

(No mention of the crossband QSOs between VE1ZZ and the UK though).
