As from 0100Z on 31st October UK stations will be able to use 7.100 to 7.200.

So on Day 2 CQWW SSB look out for us. I for one hope to take full advantage and will be pointing my beam stateside
using the call M7Z.

See you all in the pileups.


In the long run it's obviously good news. But I'm not sure how valuable it will be in the short term.

The range where we will be able to work transceive, 7150-7200, is full of BC QRM, entrenched/ill-tempered U.S. nets, contesters working stations below 7100 who are QSX up, etc. Even from 7100-7150 you'll have BC QRM if you operate split. I suspect we might still be able to hear M7Z better below 7100. Hope I'm wrong - We shall see.
