Hi guys.

The following is a list compiled of known active CW maritime beacons/markers both military and civilian, reception of all are in the A1A mode (CW).  The last date when heard is shown in brackets and other notes.  Please post any new ones heard with UTC date/time, frequency, call sign and report.

...

HLF, HLJ, HLO, HLW etc Korea Telecom transmitters are all 3Kw to Log Periodic antennas from an area outside Seoul.
SVO Olympia Radio uses 10Kw transmitters to ND TCI 540-2-04 antenna system near Athens.
TAH Istanbul Radio, Turkey runs a 10Kw transmitter, antenna system not known, transmitter near Istanbul.
XSG & XSQ China, transmitter and antenna array not known.

...

(updated: Saturday 05th December 2020.)

I may have some hints on the tx-sites for:

  • HLF, HLJ, HLO, HLW -> 37.176718, 126.663407 (PM37HE)
  • SVO -> 37.604181, 21.488436 (KM07RO)
  • TAH -> 41.118194, 28.940389 (KN41LC)
  • XSG -> 31.310408, 121.830308 (unsure)
  • XSQ -> 23.157083, 113.514044 (unsure)

China is not that precise in giving tx positions so tha data for XSG and XSQ is vague.

Any hint on their real TX-QTH is very much appreciated here.

Hope this helps.

Kind reagrds and stay safe.
73 & 55
