    It is quite possible to operate on 630m from an average suburban lot. I have had spots with Hawaii, which is over 7000km from here on a regular basis.

    I am a former Radio Officer and i remember that we had on board a transmitter for 410 / 425 / 454 / 468 / 480 / 500 and 512 kHz mostly with 400 Watts. The main working frequency of our coast stastion Norddeich Radio/DAN was 474 KHz. Especially in the winter nights a wide area was covered. It was great. Hermann, DL6BCX

    Norddeich Radio/DAN on 474 Khz could be heard all the way across the atlantic to the US east coast. Scheveningen Radio/PCH on 464 Khz was also strong.
    There are many excellent recordings of Medium Wave CW on the following site:

    What were the mariners using for antennas aboard ship?

    I hope 630 meter band is not being developed so that it will become our new ham band while big business takes away another existing allocation we all like.
