I have been very active on 50 MHz(6m) Band.

I was licensed JE1BQE in 1971, and JA9QZH in 1976, respectively. There were many HAM Radio Operators to enjoy 50MHz Band in the 1970's, who were mostly junior high school or high school students. I used to enjoy talking with them when I was a boy, too.

In my Amateur 2nd-Class Radio Operator license in the 1970s, the maximum output power allowed in the 50MHz Band was 50 watts. If I had a Amateur 1st-Class Radio Operator license, the maximum output power allowed in the 50MHz Band was 50 watts at that time.

I upgraded my license to Amateur 1st-Class Radio Operator in 1983. Currently, the maximum output power allowed in the 50MHz Band is 1000 watts with Amateur 1st-Class Radio Operator license, and 200 watts with Amateur 2nd-Class Radio Operator license.

I am an active member of SMIRK (Six Meter International Radio Klub).

50MHz Band is very Mysterious !

I have been enjoying HAM Radio from Overseas. I received JE1BQE/DL licence in West Germany in 1976, but 50MHz Band could not be allowed 50MHz Band in Europe in 1970's. I operated HAM Radio from Saipan (KK6RT/KH0, KH0/JE1BQE) in 1992 for 4 days. I could not hear any signals on 50MHz Band during the first 3 days, but 50MHz Band opened between Japan and Saipan on the 4th day, and I could have QSOs with more than 200 stations. The 50MHz Band was very mysterious.

I am looking forward to having a QSO with you on 50MHz Band from my other HAM Radio Stations, which are JD1BOO station on Ogasawara Island and HL3ZCG in Daejeon (Korea).
