Richard Dillman from the Maritime Radio Historical Society (MRHS) reports a new US class 1A common carrier Morse code coast station has been licensed
by the FCC!

Richard said “Those in the US interested in preserving 500KHz for commercial operation should apply for a commercial coast station license - just as the MRHS did for KSM.”

Two people made applications. One of these has been granted today 24th Sept.

Station KDR has been licensed to James A. Dalke in Bellevue, WA. OM. Dalke is a broadcast engineer who just happens to have a 5kW MF transmitter in the garage so I suspect we will be hearing the signal of KDR before too long. Jim says he as many "interesting plans" for the station.

KDR is licensed for operation on 500Khz and 482KHz at 5kW.
