5 MHz allowed tomorrow!

According to a new publication from the goverment we are allowed to transmit on 5 MHz in the Netherlands tomorrow. That is exactly after 2300 UTC today (Midnight 00:00 local time). Frequency between 5350 - 5450 KHz with a max. of 100W and only if you got a "Full" license. Since the mililtairy is the primary user we are allowed on the frequency on a secundairy basis. That means if you hear militairy users you cannot interupt, although I doubt we will hear much militairy there.

I don't know if I will be first on air on 60m. For some people it's important to make that first QSO. I might get on air tomorrow very early in the morning.

If you want to be succesful in making contacts you have to observe the different rules in Europe and outside. All SSB communication is on USB unlike 160, 80 and 40m. Besides that some countries use channels and slices of spectrum in the 60m band.

For info look at:

Good luck working on 60m. And hopefully I will work some of you readers if you're allowed to transmit there.

    1. Jammer Paul. De FT-450 maar eens ombouwen? Maar je kan wel luisteren daar. Ik heb besloten toch maar even te wachten. Wil om 00:00 toch even een filmpje schieten van de eerste minuten. Het is tenslotte een historisch moment. 73, Bas
