Canadians get a new band, 137kHz or 2200m

RAC reported yesterday that Canadian Amateurs now have the chance to use the low frequency band of 135.7-137.8kHz, after Industry Canada approval.  Conditions are that the EIRP for signals has a maximum of 1W and it should not cause interference.  In the past special licenses have been granted by Industry Canada for amateurs to experiment with 137 kHz.

Canada now joins a few other European countries that can operate on this LF band.  This is a band that QRSS is used on and here is a Canadian grabber operated by VE7TIL.

Finally, here is a video of a well constructed 137 kHz beacon by IW3FZQ
