Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
This application serves to provide a source of CW, medium power level, reliable, signal to act as a radio propagation beacon at 70.005MHz for domestic as well as possible Trans-Atlantic reception. With recent changes to EU radio allocations, more amateurs are actively utilizing the 70MHz spectrum. As such, the likelihood of detection of Es propagation in the EU and North America on that band has increased.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Testing VHF E-Skip radio propagation beacon. Continuation of radio experiment for 2011 summer Eskip season based on poor and little Trans-Atlantic measurement data observed during 2010. SBE frequency coordination is being renewed as well for 2011.

Callsign: WE9XUP
Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 05/01/2011
Operation End Date: 09/01/2011
