Sub-30kHz amateur signal crosses Atlantic

| March 7, 2014

30khz-signal-crosses-atlanticIn what’s believed to be a first, a very low frequency signal from Bob, W2ZM in New York was heard across the Atlantic by Paul Nicholson and later by Mike Dennison, G3XDV. Bob was transmitting on 29.499kHz under a US Part 5 Experimental licence using the callsign WH2XBA/1. His very slow-speed CW signal was initially detected in the UK just before 0000UTC on 3 March. Paul also copied a 29.501kHz transmission from Dex, W4DEX, in North Carolina, who was operating as WH2XBA/4. Congratulations to all concerned.
