Six & Four
The Complete Guide to 50 & 70 MHz Amateur Radio
By Don Field G3XTTOrder #6322 ..... $19.98
Six Metres (50MHz) - the 'Magic Band' - has always been 'different'. It sometimes behaves as an HF band, with world-wide propagation, but at other times acts more like a VHF band, enjoying the benefits of Sporadic E, meteor scatter and other occasional propagation modes. Because it has so many facets, 6m is both a challenge and an enigma and it draws amateurs from both the VHF and HF worlds. Six & Four is the complete guide to this fascinating band and the similar Four Metre (70MHz) band (not available to US hams). Six & Four is essential reading for all radio amateurs, especially those who want to try something new and different. With new countries gaining temporary or permanent access on a regular basis, both bands are a lot of fun, as this book shows! ©2013 RSGB 208 pages. . List price $24.95.
