Today I received a permit for experimental transmissions on the 500 kHz band, 501.000 - 504.000 kHz.
Now I will need to build a transmitter, I will most probably go the way Joachim proposed, using a 27 MHz crystal on the fundamental frequency (9 MHz), then dividing by 9 with a 4017, then by 2 with a flip-flop, followed by a "buffer amplifier" , and later an IRF510 as power amplifier.
The hard part will be the antenna, it needs to be compact, so a "magnetic loop" is probably the only way to go here.
FT8 it's a winner! - 28 MHz FT8 mode last night open to VO1NE GN27 S.A. PY LU CX CE good signals after repairing the wire antennas damaged in the storm last week 80m...
