Information About WD2XES and WE2XGR/3

WD2XES is licensed as an Experimental Station under Part 5 of the FCC Rules. Since the grant of the license in March, 2004, the station has been used to study LF antenna design, propagation and communication modes. Signals from WD2XES have been copied as far away as Russia. A mixture of 1-way (beacon) and 2-way communications have been used, and the methods and results are summarized below.

WE2XGR/3 is also an FCC-licensed Experimental station, the result of a group application by Warren Ziegler, K2ORS. With operation authorized in the 505-515 kHz range, the emphasis will be on two-way communication.
