630-meter band for Amateur Radio
This forum presentation was given by John Langridge, KB5NJD, at HamCom 2016 in Texas. 630-meters is a new HF band which is below the AM Broadcast band, and is being tested for use on Amateur Radio. Some groups are trying to get it approved to be added as the newest band in our HF privileges. John does an excellent job with presenting the info for this new band, how it works, what equipment to use, etc.
Presentations like this define Ham Radio 2.0. This is the newest band allocation for HF, and it is all about “what is new” in Amateur Radio.
I hope you enjoy this presentation as much as I did.

how bout a ~160′ DDRR?
There are three of us Hams in the Los Angeles area that are on 476 K.C. using SSB with good results. Since we live within 30 miles of each other running during the summer time static has not been a problem There is a ham in the Sacramento area that does join us once in a great while that I have worked as well using my 40′ vertical inverted L with 100 watts SSB. We need more SSB stations on. I saw a map of 630 meter SSB stations and most are on the East Coast for whatever reason. I hope more of you out there join us on SSB. -WD6ELU
