Ive been meaning to get a 5MHz NoV (Notice of Variation) for some time, but as usual never quite got around to it. This afternoon, for some reason, I thought i'd quite like to try 60m WSPR, so, knowing there have been changes to the 5MHz rules but unsure if the NoV had been relaxed or not, I searched for info online, and came upon the RSGB's online NoV application form.
Not thinking too hard about it, I filled in the form and clicked submit, expecting now a long wait for a letter from Ofcom, but no! An NoV arrived mere seconds later by email!
Within minutes, i'd retuned the DX-70 to 5MHz, adjusted the software settings, and was seeing my first WSPR spots on 60m!
My next task is to look for a suitable box to build the 40m Sudden into! I have a small case from a defunct DVB-T Set Top Box, which might well make a nice case. I will check this out at the same time as sticking a rivet into the handle of my snow shovel!
