Updates will be posted at http://njdtechnologies.net/mf-and-lf-demonstration-opportunity-for-arrl-field-day-2015-the-field-day-greetings/

Stations at Field Day sites are encouraged to use their HF rigs that have general coverage receivers capable of the operating below the broadcast band
and whatever antennas they might have on site to listen for these stations and others (HF dipoles and verticals are probably best, antenna tuners in bypass).
Reports are very much appreciated and can be sent to the respective Part 5 station operators, but stations are also encouraged to enter reports at http://w5jgv.com/enterlogs.htm AND take advantage of potential Field Day points by sending NTS traffic to the ARRL to let them know who was heard. (10-points per message up to 100 points). The ARRL's contact information is 225 Main St., Newington, CT 06111, 860 594 0200.

This event has been organized to promote awareness of the new MW and LW allocations as proposed by the FCC's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, dated April 23, 2015, and is neither sanctioned by nor affiliated with the ARRL. Its simply an opportunity where hams and ham gear come together for a fun weekend and we hope to add yet another layer to the mix.

73 and have a safe, happy and fun Field Day weekend!

Comment: How about adding a little fun to your ARRL Field Day experience?  Receiving signals from these Part 5 experimental stations, many operated by licensed Amateur Radio operators, could earn your club extra points for the Field Day event.  Receiving these stations could also demonstrate support for a FCC-approved Amateur Radio Service presence in the 2200 meters/600 meters bands.  Just see what you can do with the antennas you have at your Field Day site.  For the latest Amateur Radio News and Events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.
