This is post 2409 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Many radio amateurs are exploring the world of the 630 meter band (472kHz-479kHz).  The main issue with this MF (medium frequency) band is the large antennas used to make contacts.

In this video, Australian ham Peter Parker (VK3YE) shows us how to use simple equipment to get on this fairly new amateur radio band.

Here are some of Peter's comments:

630m has great propagation but what about the antenna? Most of us lack the land for a full sized one. But you can still get some interesting results by loading up what you've got. In this video I try 200mW WSPR on 476 kHz. How far do I get? Watch and find out! PS: Like these videos? Wish to support this channel?

Then when you buy something I receive a small commission (at no extra cost to you). Or check my books page to see if any appeal. http://home.alphalink.com.au/~parkerp...
