Nice post from Steve (VE7SL) on recent 630 meter activity across the Pacific Ocean. The Texas-based WG2IXQ 630 meter experimental beacon was picked up by Wellington, New Zealand resident Con (ZL2AFP).  Con also received a 630 meter signal from Washington State resident Larry (W7IUV) operating as WH2XGD.  Just before sunrise in Oregon, Ruday (N6LF) was heard on 630 meters using call sign WD2XSH/20 by VK2XGJ and VK2DDI.  The article contains photos of the simple verticals used to transmit signals on 474.200 kHz using the WSPR mode.  Low power in the "radio basement" can sometimes do amazing things.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
