I don't want to say for certain, but "seems" like VE1ZZ played around with 
this band as well some years back.
I vaguely recall reading a story about Jack making this humoungous loading 
coil, but don't know how
it even panned out.  Was there a special temp permit?

Does anyone know?

Jack/ZZ is not on the Internet, as far as I know.

  Everyone should check out the following link:

  One local amateur - Pat Hamel, W5THT, is participating
  in this experimental effort. He has been keeping the
  members of the Magnolia DX Association, K5MDX, and others
  fully informed on his progress. He has been heard in
  deep Oceania, and many two way QSO's around the country.
  He requests SWL reports be forwarded to the moderator of
  this experimental program.

  He documents his station and antenna system there as well.

  I am a retired USCG Chief Radioman, and have stood countless
  500Khz radio watches, and am very familiar with propagation
  on the 600 meter band. Real DX is there at low power levels.
  Amatur radio operators should take a look at how the FAA does
  things on the 200-400 Khz Aeronautical Beacon band for antenna
  ideas and theory.
