This screen shot of SpectraVue will give some idea of the number of beacons I may be able to track.

Loggings from Oct 18 0930-1030 UTC:

1704  4LLR
1707  3ZTA
1748  95R971
1773  4PEC
1812  TR4
1826  4PEC
1826  EE2
1839  3ZDY
1862  UE6
1924  AG6
1942  IC526
1956  AH5
1989  4IKT
2049  4COI
2049  4IFE

The two beacons at 2049 are interesting as they are txing their IDs at the same time, less than 1 sec apart. 4IFE is slightly higer in freq so I could split them apart.

Here are a couple of recordings. The first one is an example of one of the stronger beacons I've heard.
The second one is interesting in that it is a different format from all the other ones, as you can hear.

I have a few more new ones for the log.

I made some recordings too. I'm wondering if I should put them up on a file hosting site.

jFarley:

Signal strengths have been all over the place.Most of my loggings have been with an R75 and a 1/2 Vertical which is supposed to be for 14-30 Mhz. It is my least noisy. Most have been readable but not strong. Some move the s meter significantly. They must be fairly close.

It looks like kluging up a directional antenna is going to require more effort than I thought. My ferrite loopstick is optimized for 1600 kHz and below. I could wind another coil on it but it seems that putting the effort into an air loop would yield better results.

I have some more loggings to post but I need to format them.

There is a beacon at 1725 which has a different format than all the others I have heard. While listening for an extended period, I heard several short bursts of fsk/psk data. This warrants further monitoring, I think.

only way to find out is to try it. I will find a capacitor that works and try it

I just logged two on 1962: RZ6 and 4IGW. RZ6 also appeared at 1753.

It would be fun to try to track these things. I wonder if it is possible to get a bearing using a loop antenna of some kind? I have a large ferite loop-stick salvaged from an old MF/LF DF receiver.

I spent this past long weekend at Kejimkujik National Park. One of the quietest places I've ever listened to radio. IC706 mkIIG, 12 volt gel-cel and a PAR-SWL oriented E-W.
I logged these beacons mostly between 1000 and 1400 UTC on Oct 8 and Oct 9.

Thanks for posting that link, QRP.

here is a list of what I logged last night. I just kept scanning between 1710 and the 160 meter band.
I will dust off the SDR-IQ and see what else is out there. It would be fun to see what other folks on the east coast can hear.

1730   0415     IC514
1752   0425     IC518
1761   0422     KW109
1839   0526     4BOB
1881   0536     4BNZ
1989   0510     AY7
1942   0500     IC526

I've spotted 2 more beacons:

KW109 at 1761 kHz and IC518 at 1752.

at 0425 UTC on 1730 Khz. repeats "IC514" then a longer dash four or five times then pauses for about 5 minutes.

In conclusion, RadioAnarchy, you would do well to monitor/listen MUCH MORE and make silly 3rd-hand-based aspersions about someone you obviously do NOT know and may NOT have even heard, MUCH LESS frequently, if at all….

Thanks for dropping by, Carl. ;D
