Contesting 6 meters would be nice yes I would be a starter in fact I
would break my neck ( a second time ) to be able to even use 6 meters here in
NZL without the whole TV community jumping up and down ..
Guys here in NZL ( most parts ) 6 meters has been lost to Television NZ
we have been battling it for years but the Corporate Dollar has beaten us
Yes we still have a 6 meter band and it is " permitted use only ".. You apply
for a Permit on top of your licence if approved you are away , if you cause
any TVI then look for a buyer for a piece of under used 6 meter gear ..
I suggest if you can get support from your Organisation to Contest on 6
meters GO for it !! why lose another band to the Corporate dollar..
This 6 meter band is as close as a Grade 3 Licence holder in NZ can get to
the HF Band ..( Grade 3 UHF/VHF etc bands only )..
Good Luck I am sure operators in NZ would support you if they could all
operate without TVI ...
