Drift Net Beacons 2MHz?
« on: December 29, 2016, 1024 UTC »
Wasn't really looking for these but came across a large group between 2.400MHz to 2.650MHz, these were the ones readable.  Drift Net beacons?

1724-1809z:

2.415MHz  CW  BL1
2.455MHz  CW  FG6
2.527MHz  CW  PO2
2.599MHz  CW  MV5
2.618MHz  CW  GO6

All of the above between 319-539 report.  There were some others too weak to ident.
