WG2XPN 70 MHz Beacon update

Posted by Admin

Brian WA1ZMS, licensee of the 3 kW ERP 70.005 MHz WG2XPN beacon, reports the license has been renewed until May 1, 2017 

The Experimental License for WG2XPN with one-way only beacon operations on 70.005 MHz with 3 kW ERPd from here in the US (QTH: FM07fm) has been renewed until May 1, 2017.

As such, it gives the only 4m North American beacon a chance to be heard via TA in the Europe for another 2 years. That's a good thing in my mind. Thanks again goes to the FCC & the Society of Broadcast Engineers here in the US for their continued support; after all this portion of spectrum is still reserved for TV service only and no US 4m ham band appears possible in the future. 

I am always hoping for a repeat of the 7000+km Eskip DX reports that took place in 2013. To all EU stations on 4m: Remember to point your beams West during Eskip season and give a long listen on 70.005MHz. You might just hear something!
