The main source listing at the head of page-1 has been updated today, Saturday 12th December 2021.

Of special note is the absence of the two Telecom Korea 24 hour beacons in Seoul on 8MHz, I haven't heard either for two months now (maybe they have been withdrawn from service), any one hearing them please post here with report, date and time in UTC, much appreciated.

"SVO" Olympia Radio, Athens, Greece, not been heard on 6321.5MHz CW since September 2020, has anyone heard it of recent?  Its 8MHz brother is still active and heard each day.

Please submit date/time in UTC and RST if you have heard 6321.5MHz SVO this year, appreciated. :)

As with the two Telecom Korea marker beacons on 8MHz, I think it's safe to presume that "SVO" Olympia Radio on 6321.5MHz has been closed down, not heard for over 18th months.

Telecom Korea marker beacon on 22.611.5MHz is no longer transmitting 24 hours, it appears intermittently.

The main list at the head of page 1 has been updated.

4XZ Israeli Defence Force on 8.432.0MHz CW come and goes on an ad hoc basis.

HLW2 Seoul South Korea is still off air on 12.923.0MHz CW probably decommissioned.

The 22.611.5MHz Telecom Korea frequency changes call signs at various time from HLG to HLF and vice versa, reasons unknown.

4XZ on 2.680.0MHz CW has been heard in recent days.

Thank you, glad someone reads and gets use out of it.  They are a slow dying breed the marine CW transmissions.  I mainly use them as propagation path indicators.
