A busy VLF amateur band (8-9kHz)

DK7FC's 8.97kHz grabber showing 4 stations active!
This screen shot from DK7FC's grabber shows just how busy this band is now becoming and how much progress has been made in the last 12 months. Visible in the grab taken March 6th 2001 are DJ8WX, OE3GHB, DK7FC (local testing) and DF6NM. Only a year ago people dismissed experiments at sub-9kHz as dreaming whereas today stations are regularly getting reports from anything from a few km to nearly 3000km for the better equipped stations.

This is REAL ham radio at the frontiers folks - put your cheque books away, forget those black boxes and join the fun on the Dreamer's Band.
