We are happy to announce, that we received a license to operate a beacon on the 4 m band.

  • Callsign: OE5QL
  • The beacon frequency is: 70,045 MHz
  • Locator: JN78CJ
  • Height: 840m ASL

This is no Amateur Radio Call the Austrian PTT said, it is an Experimental Operation Radio Call.

Well, there are some restrictions:

  • Time limit is 1 June and until 31 August 2009.
  • Transmission is only 2 minutes per sequence between 04:00 and 19:47 UTC.
  • Each sequence begins at full hour +00 min., +15 min., +30 min. and +45 min, e.g. 04:00-04:02, 04:15-04:17, 04:30-04:32 and 04:45-04:47.
  • Transmission power is 1 W ERP the first minute of each sequence and 5 W ERP the second minute of each sequence.

If the beacon does not interfere with services outside of Austria, an extension is possible after August 2009 the Austrian PTT said.
Anyway after August 2009 we will try to negotiations for 24/7 duration period for the beacon.
