About a year ago, US hams were given access to the 630 meter band. This slice of the spectrum is below the AM radio band at 472 kHz. You may have heard some bits and pieces about operating here over the past year, or two. John Langridge KB5NJD recently visited the South Canadian Amateur Radio Society's (SCARS) monthly club meeting and set the record straight on 630 M. In this presentation, John has been running this band for over 5 years with an experimental license. Here he talks about how this band works and how you can get involved. He discusses receivers, transmitters, amplifiers, antenna tuning, and antennas for this band. He even describes the easy UTC notification system that's required to operate here. More information about operating on the 630 meter band can be found on the SCARS 630 meter page, https://w5nor.org/630m/ that includes links to the content that John talks about in his presentation. He's issued a challenge to Field Day crews to include a 630 transmitter at your next Field Day activity. SCARS is planning to set one up for the Winter Field Day activities as our first entry into this band. We've already notified the UTC for our normal Field Day site. Listen for W5NOR on 630 M on January 26th/27th. And make plans to join us there!
