Is it legal to operate an HF beacon?
« on: March 26, 2011, 09:44:19 AM »
I emailed a PM to Tony about 6 meter operation, (of course not yet authorised).

But this is a general question about the legality of operating an HF beacon on the authorised bands.

My QTH is on Phuket Island, just a few hundred meters from the west coast beaches and the same distance from Phuket International Airport.  I would love to operate an HF beacon, but I'm not sure if this is allowed, or what trhe procedure would be to obtain permission.

Any advice is much appreciated

Well with your own callsign should not be any problem - but maybe should be coordinated if there are more interested OM.  ( In the past we already had 2-3 temporal beacon only in Bangkok which makes really no sense - on HF maybe in WSPR or other mode why not ...

If you think about official HF beacon with own callsign then better skip this project ... - HI!
That will take some more time until the NBTC will be open for that ... This is just my opinion!
