Hi MF,

Just regarding CW activity on MF, below you can find another good example that (CW) activity rises activity. So if there is no one on the band, just call CQ, preverably with Q R O so that many stations can hear you, even those with local QRM and compromise antennas. First they must hear you, then they may start to improve their RX system and just then they will hear the QRP stations! Even if no one answers, the calls are not "a waste of energy and time". At least for me it's nice to know there are a few people outside catchinhg the signal, maybe even unintended :-) In that case, the OM didn't even know that the 630m band is existing for radio amateurs!

Hello Stefan,
Just a short email to tell you that I picked up your signals on the 600m band yesterday evening. I heard you calling CQ a few times with your locator JN49, then you started working another DK station called Rudi. I didn't get the callsign of the other station because of local QRM, but your signals were clear here at times, best report 519 for you.

I was tuning on my RX looking for the non-directional aircraft beacons between 280KHz and 530KHz when I came across your CQ calling on 473KHz. At first I thought there must be a fault with my RX because I didn't know about the new 600m band, but now that I do, I'll listen there some more! Very interesting!

My SWL station is a Trio R-600 with end-fed wire antenna (see GW0LBI on, and my location is Bargoed Wales, IO81jq if that is any use to you.

Anyway hope this helps Stefan, I'll listen for you again, and good luck.

Guten Tag,

Leighton GW-20049 / GW0LBI
