New Beacon "L" 4096.150

I was looking at the spectrum around 4096 and spotted a strong (new to me) signal. It sends L about every 7 seconds.

Thanks to whoever built and deployed this beacon!

I checked a bunch of kiwi SDRs and the L beacon has a signal of roughly the same strength as DW on 4095.65

I wish I had a sense of the signal strength of the "old" March of 2022 L beacon that was on 4095 because maybe this is the same hardware but 1 KHz higher?

It's gone. Maybe it broke.
