Newcomers can at least hear my signals on LF, MF and other bands and judge
for themselves. If you have not built and engineered the complete package
including antennas for LF/ MF you are at a disadvantage when it comes to
advice.
As you say this cannot be a serious debate because you are not experienced
in the subject.

AS I previously wrote, this hardly qualifies as serious debate.
 However, the licence PERMITS me to radiate a signal should I so wish.
I am thereby allowed choice.
 For many of us, the experimentation and self-training aspects are
primary. I also consider myself to have, by now, satisfied my
competitive cravings and contest scores/qsl cards/dxcc etc. pursuits.
 By continuing to denigrate the activities of others who do not share
your particular enthusiasms and prejudices you fail dismally to enthuse
newcomers and demonstrate a very narrow-minded view of the world of
amateur radio about you.
Oh, and by the way I can think of at least one well-known radio amateur
who rarely "transmits" but has made a major and recognised contribution
to propogation studies at LF. QED.

I always thought an amateur radio licence was a transmitting licence,
otherwise why bother, no licence is required to receive.

I'm sorry Mal, but just when did it become a given that experimentation

required one to radiate a signal? My licence permits me to do many

things but nowhere do I read an instruction to "transmit". Or perhaps

you believe that I should only have an "old fashioned" artificial

aerial permit?

I'm getting rather fed up with this dialogue which hardly even

qualifies as sensible debate.

Theere seems to be a lot of opinions and

rheotric here on the reflector about LF and MF but I have never heard

these stations actually transmitting on the bands, so I would guess

they

are not in a position to express an opinion.



Surely I am not the only one capable of building

and operating a CW station in the20UK/EU on 136 and 500 khz.
