HF Beacons / MOVED: frequency hopping set of repeating pulses

This topic has been moved to HF Mystery Signals as it does not appear to be a transmit mode that is useful as a beacon. It does post an interesting puzzle to solve!

A very interesting catch but it is not a HF Beacon. This topic has been moved to [Shortwave Pirate].  https://www.hfunderground.com/board/index.php/board,3.0.html

i dont live near the ocean but i do live near the great lakes...would there be drift beacons in there or is that more of a ocean thing???

Hi Venom

Compared to the large oceans the Great Lakes are much more confined. I believe drift nets would be a hazard to all boats and would not be allowed.

Because HF propagation can cover long distance you might want to still try to listen.

Have you ever heard the "A" letter beacon on 2097.3 KHz? It is pretty strong and supposedly in Arizona. If you can hear that beacon you might try listening for DNB's
