8000 kHz CW "QRP"-morse beacon
« on: February 04, 2014, 0409 UTC »
Hi,

there is a morse beacon just now on 8000 kHz
transmitting "QRP" in slower morse CW.
First spotted yesterday on [ndblist] yahoogroups.

Was very weak here in Germany around 22 UTC (3-Feb) with RST 219
only "visible" by ARGO screen shot.
just now (03:45 UTC) much stronger peaking RST 559
on my DX-88 vertical.

A new pirate beacon? Any QSL-info? Would be nice
to QSL such a beacon...hi

That beacon is still active, just checked at 06:45 German local time (05:45 UTC)
on 7999,9x kHz with RST 529 (12-Feb-2014).

Reports from other EU monitors let me suggest an European
location, maybe South (East) Europe.
