“An Amazing Night” Reported for Special Activity on 630 Meters

Texas radio amateur and FCC Part 5 Experimental licensee John Langridge, KB5NJD/ WG2XIQ, reported “an amazing night” for the 630-meter special event on November 12-13. One highlight was a North America-to-Europe Amateur Radio contact on the medium-wave band, to which US operators are still awaiting access.

“Last night is what it is all about, and I had a front row seat for the festivities,” Langridge said in his lengthy post-event report, adding that the activity represented “a significant moment in 630-meter lore.” The weekend event featured participation by the Marine Radio Historical Society’s KPH, Canadian radio amateurs making cross-band contacts with US stations, and Part 5 Experimental stations either beaconing or contacting other experimental stations.
