Philippines: From Frank PA7F

We now have some news about 60m, we are now allocated a band from

5.3515MHz to 5.3665MHz, 15kHz wide. as per IARU R3 Jan 1st 2017.

There is no further information at the moment and this new band will

be available from 6th July 2017.

 

There is already a lot of excitement about using the band here but

many DU hams do not know about power restrictions (ITU R3 = 15W eirp)

or band plans for 60m.

 

Hopefully we will get more information shortly from the government

agency otherwise I guess IARU R3 rules apply.

3Y0 - BOUVET ISLAND: From their website

 

The January-February, 2018 3Y0Z Bouvet Island DXpedition team has

posted a propagation page on their website (http://www.bouvetdx.org).

It has videos showing propagation predictions for that early 2018

time frame.  The tab for the propagation is in the header menu.  You

can choose time, frequency and signal strength for your QTH.  This is

based on the average sunspot numbers forecast for January, 2018.
