FYI: The new VLF bands

Image result for 630 meter ham band

There was a lot of talk at our last meeting about the two new VLF ham band and what it will take to get on the air.  I found this while surfing and it answers a lot of questions.   You will need Microsoft Powerpoint or at least a viewer {link below} to see the presentation.

From the N6LF blog: SeaPac 2014 630m talk
On Saturday June 7th I gave a talk at SeaPac 2014.  You can download the PowerPoint presentation here: Download Sea-Pac 2014 Presentation .  I should add that the Flex Radio 1500 and 6000 series SDR’s can transmit on 630m.  I spoke with the K3 folks and while the K3 will not operate directly that low in frequency they have modified the software to be compatible with transverters.
