VLF, LF, MF Experimenters Will Transmit ARRL Field Day Greetings

Members of the Experimental VLF, LF, and MF community again will be reaching out to Amateur Radio operators taking part in ARRL Field Day, June 25-26. A number of Experimental (Part 5) licensees — nearly all of them radio amateurs — have been plying the depths of the radio spectrum as the ham radio community awaits FCC action on the new 2200 and 630 meter bands. The experimenters will be transmitting Field Day-specific beacons and greeting messages.

“The intent is to be an outreach opportunity for these bands and to introduce hams that might not otherwise know that anything is going on below the AM broadcast band,” said John Langridge, KB5NJD. He holds an FCC Part 5 Experimental license with the call sign WG2XIQ. “Radios, antennas, and operators are already in one place, so this is the perfect opportunity for them to listen for these signals, provide reports, and originate NTS traffic for bonus points about the stations that they heard,” he added.
