60M / 5 MHz. Operations planned (USB + WSPR-TX!) from the Dutch Caribbean Islands of Saba + St. Eustatius !!!

(Sorry 60M / 5 MHz. operations from Sint Maarten (PJ7) are still NOT allowed :'( !)

I will try to operate SPLIT for North America and other countries who are not allowed to use the new IARU 60M bandplan (see below!) QSO's will be made according the rules below using a Dualband EndFed wire antenna for 60M + 15M (*) in USB-only (+ WSPR-TX when bands are not in use for phone!)

Hello all,

I will be QRV with 100W SSB + 200 mW WSPR-TX from the (Dutch)Caribbean Islands of Sint Maarten (PJ7/PH2M) May 19~24 2017, Saba (PJ6/PH2M) May 24~29 2017 & Sint Eustatius (PJ5/PH2M) May 29 ~ June 4 2017.

Confirmed bands 40~10M (including WARC !) and possible 60M (Allowed on PJ4, PJ5 & PJ6 from May 1st 2017 max. 25W), I will confirm 60M before our departure to the Caribbean!
Antennas used: all EndFed wire antennas: 40/20/(15/)10M + 30/17/12M + 60/15M

The Irish Radio Transmitters Society have just announced that Irish radio amateurs can use the WRC-15 band of 5.3515 MHz to 5.3665 MHz with immediate effect. No application is necessary and the power limit is 15 watts. This is very good news for anyone with an interest in the 60 metre band.

Hopefully we will see the first Irish stations with WSPR on 60M

Today July 2 2016, PI4KGL is QRV with WSPR TX/RX during our PA6CASTLE event from Teylingen Castle in JO22GF http://www.qrz.com/db/PA6CASTLE

Hallo allemaal,

Er zijn al maanden diverse Nederlandse stations met WSPR-TX actief buiten de voor Nederland beschikbare frequentie segment tussen 5.350 ~ 5.450 MHz. !!!
Ik wil iedereen die dit aangaat oproepen om zich aan de regels te houden en met onmiddellijke ingang QSY te gaan naar de nieuwe 'dial'frequentie 5.3662 (voorgesteld door Wilco PE1MPX)

Hello all,

I want to inform you we will be sailing the Turkish waters & Greek waters (using SV5/) between the harbour of 'Datca' & Greek island of Symi using QRP-Labs Ultimate U3S with 200 ~ 300 mW & 2x EndFed slooper wire antennas for 40/20/10M & 30/17/12M! Also phone operations depending on conditions (mostly 20M & 17M :-) !) See QRZ.com for TA4/PH2M (SV5/PH2M) & TA4/PA3GUV (SV5/PA3GUV) information!

My good friend Jan PA3GUV is now 'QRV' with Extended-WSPR from southwestern Turkey as TA4/PA3GUV from KM46HU, using a QRP-Labs Ultimate3S + 3-band EndFed wire antenna on 40, 20 & 10M WSPR-TX with +/- 200 mW!
