# Why are there no amateur allocations in the LF and VLF spectrum?

Amateur radio enthusiasts have slices of spectrum at every magnitude of spectrum MF and above, but in the US none are below MF.

Why are there no spectrum allocations below 160M?

• While not a full answer as to why we don't have a spectrum allocation, here is some information in regards to LF and amateur radio operations. I remember reading of LF experimenters and the hopes to eventually get an allocation. arrl.org/lf-low-frequency Mar 14 '14 at 15:32

• There is allocation below 10khz, some experiments i'm working on is using huge loops on the ground and ground rods for communication, and I have already had luck up to TWO WHOLE CITY BLOCKS!!!! Using no modulation whatsoever, just audio from a 100Watt HI-FI home stereo system Mar 18 '14 at 0:29
• @Optionparty en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2200-meter_band#United_States specifically states that there is currently no such allocation in the US, while the question is tagged united-states.

• The 136 kc band was allocated with the CB 28 mc band long ago. As an "Experimental" band. Not specifically for Ham radio. Mar 20 '14 at 13:34
