Author:  Norman Sullivan (NZ5L).

If you want a new and interesting daytime QSO, check out the 60-Meter Amateur Radio Band (5.332 MHz to 5.405 MHz).  With a simple dipole or inverted V antenna, you can get reliable contacts out to approximately 300 miles/486 km, depending on propagation.

The 60-Meter band is perfect for local, state, and regional communications, and lends itself to ARES and RACES operations.

Although there are few commercial antennas made for the 60-Meter band, you can easily build a dipole or inverted V antenna for this band with locally made materials.

In this post, Norman Sullivan (NZ5L) takes us step-by-step through the construction of this simple HF antenna.  If you haven't tried the 60-Meter band, "you are missing out on a lot of pleasant mid-range daytime QSOs."
