Switzerland #HB9 open the 70MHz band for hams!
It's looks like HB9 hams got their Christmas gift already ! :-) Congrats !
According to twitter post by @HB9DUR and USKA page https://t.co/WDS4C745P2 effective January 1st, 2023 Swiss hams can operate 4m band in two segments, 70.000-70.0375 and 70.1125-70.500MHz with 25W ERP power.
You can read the rules in German, French and Italian.
In my experience, there will be no problem to get HB9 guys even on high tropo, the distance from here is almost perfect even for MS. Hope to hear HB9 friends soon! Another nice DXCC to work on summer season.
