The VERY LOW FREQUENCY station in Sweden, call sign SAQ will be using CW (Morse code) on 17.2 kHz and will start transmitter tuning at 0730 UTC.
VLF station SAQ (now a member of the Swedish Amateur Radio Association) will be on air Wednesday 24th December 2008 at 0800 UTC and 0830 UTC.
Anyone with a computer can download the free Computer Soundcard Based SAQ ELF (Extremely Low Frequency 300 Hz to 3 kHz) and VLF (3 kHz to 22 kHz) Receiver from Johan SM6LKM on http://web.telia.com/~u33233109/saqrx/saqrx.html
Connect a long wire into the computer microphone socket.
I use a 1.8 MHz half wave dipole.
Disconnect the antenna before a storm and when not in use to avoid lightning danger.
The next test after this one will be on Sunday 28th June 2009.
Listeners can send QSL’s via the bureau.
A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
