Antenna research continues forward as radio amateurs take advantage of newly permitted operations in the 630 meters and 2200 meters (475 kHz and 137 kHz) amateur radio bands.  As this video from "hellozerohellozero" points out, size isn't the only concern of those operating far below the standard broadcast band.  Weather and other environmental issues can make use of these new bands a bit challenging.

In this video, we get a glimpse of what one Alaska (KL7) ham is doing to keep his low frequency antennas operational.  All of this takes place with a stunningly beautiful look at Alaska's natural beauty.  Enjoy!
