Hi,

I put together this website to try and encourage EI radio experimenters to become active on the VHF bands. Between May and August 50MHz (6m band) will be open to Europe almost everyday. A lot of the time the signals are worked easily with a small dipole and a few watts. You do not need a beam unless you want to work outside Europe but saying that I know amateurs in Ireland who have worked the USA and South Africa using verticals !!

To give you an idea of type of signals you can expect to hear I made some
recordings of Sporadic E, Aurora, Tropo, F2, TEP and Meteor Scatter DX and saved them as Real Audio files.. Its amazing the DX that can be worked with a single beam. Hungary on 2m or Argentina on 6m - Interested ???
