|Local (SV) SSB net on 5365 kHz, abusing the WSPR sub-band the the upper band limit.|
Last week Greek radio amateurs had a pleasant surprise. The Government published the new national frequency allocation table (FEK B'751/2019), with considerable delay, which harmonizes frequency allocation with WRC-15 decisions. The update includes a new secondary amateur radio frequency allocation on 60 m (5351.5-5366.5 kHz), which is particularly suited for NVIS regional networks during daytime.
The first few days on the band brought in some interesting DX, including N. America in the early mornings. Most traffic is FT8 on 5357.0-5360.0 kHz, with some CW, especially near the low end of the band. Also WSPR is very active on 5366.2 kHz (USB carrier 5354.7 kHz).
At times parts of the band are affected by continuous 3-kHz wide military PSK transmissions and Over The Hrizon Radars (OTHR).
