Aaron, K5ATG to operate at the USS Batfish November 4
From Aaron, K5ATG: On November 4, I have been invited to go to the USS Batfish WWII Submarine in Muskogee and operate amateur radio in the radio room. I would like to work the members of MDARC and ACARC before everyone else. I also got invited to join them for the Pearl Harbor Special Event on December 9-10. Please watch the ACARC Facebook page and your email for updates.
Hams can register to operate on 630m and 2200m bands
The FCC announced September 15, 2017 that it would be opening the new 630m and 2200m bands to US operators. These frequencies are to be used on a secondary basis. Before operating, stations much register with the UTC (Utility Technology Council). UTC will verify that there are no PLC (Power Line Carrier) systems running on the same frequencies within 1km. If no response from UTC is received within 30 days of submission, said operator will be clear to operate on these frequencies. You can register online.
More information on the 630m band and 2200m band (136kHz) can be found on Wikipedia.
