Netherlands on 500kHz and 70MHz

Some good news: amateurs in The Netherlands now have access to the 500kHz band (again) and 70-70.5MHz (4m).  Countries permitting 4m operation are growing every few months. Let's hope one of the major equipment manufacturers includes the band in multimode HF-6m rigs. Adding 4m cannot be too hard.

Hi Roger, yes first contacts on 4m have been made. Local ham use FM equipment. Seems like an interesting band. I was able to work 6 local stations yesterday with inhouse antenna and SE550 fm RADIO. Seems thatfirst 70 MHz PA-UK contacts were made yesterday.
