Hi Lee
I have just got my NOV to operate on 500kHz, so will be dipping my toe into the water from next week.
I have not got any 138kHz experience and only obtained my full amateur licence last May.
On my application for the NOV, I provided a scale diagram of my own and immediate neighbour's properties, gave a brief description of the TX(home brew), RX(Lowe HF-225) and antenna(T) that I intend to use and an estimate of my erp from the TANTENNA program on the internet (200mW).  As I am using a VFO, I use a counter to measure the frequency and also monitor transmissions using the RX which has a digital readout.   I also stated that I would cease transmissions until any complaint was satisfactorily resolverd, and mentioned two nearby amateurs also working on 500kHz whose help and advice I could seek.
All the above seemed to work, so good luck on your application.  The more the merrier.

Hi All,


After reading through loads of stuff and monitoring the LF Group I?m left with the decision of whether to start on 136 or 500KHz.


500KHz seems much easier to deal with from the outset, and hopefully the NoV period will be extended further next year.

However the NoV itself is the possible stumbling block in that it appears that experience on 136KHz is a big plus that Ofcom appear to be looking for,


My question is, would I get away with applying for a NoV without first being active on 136KHz, or has anyone already taken this route and been successful?
