Hi Mike,

The band that WD2XSH has is 505-510kc. Everything between those freq's. 
Th eWE2XGR license has 505-515kc. No channelizing. More modes than a guy 
cares to use. Power is set by effective radiated power (ERP). XSH is 20w 
ERP & XGR is 200w ERP. The guys run QRP to several kilowatt. Many are 
200w to 1kw. Antennas range from a 30' vertical to 100+ foot verticals. 
There is one military station that shows up on schedule I believe it is 
the 3rd Thursday of the month and sticks around for a few days then is 
gone until next month. It's a CW station around Norfolk. That's kind of 
a quick run down on what's happening down there. More info at www.500kc.com
