Been looking for that beacon, nothing here except Indonesian chatter and Mumbai on 6.661MHz working various aircraft.
Hermitage Flat, NSW.

Grid Square:  QF56dm.

Yaesu FT-2000D, ICOM IC-736 HF/50MHz, ICOM IC R75 & Tecsun S-2000 to 450 feet of wire, and a multi band vertical of dubious reliability.

Will have another look before and at 1800z as the path to Europe and Middle East still open then before Grey Line occurs at 2000z.

Can hear it very weak from 2020z on 6.661MHz CW but Mumbai Radio too strong to get full beacon transmission, only bits and pieces. Managed to get "beacon" and "ru".  Maybe Russian?  Will compare with the Russian Naval beacon markers on surrounding frequencies tomorrow.

Russian beacons are on 5.152MHz to 5.156MHz CW & 7.038MHz to 7.039MHz CW plus 8.491MHz to 8.496MHz.  Should give some indication if 6.661MHz is Russian (Europe & Far East).

Hi !

It looks like the beacon is run by "HighPasss", so seems to be from Volgograd area.
