This is a different SDR than the one previously discussed.  In fact, its several thousand km from the other one. 

Hearing beacon CW on 26510 kHz - 26.510 MHz, barely making it above the noise floor.  As with the other SDR loggings, some minor FM voice two-way land mobile communications system QRM from Russian taxi cab dispatchers talking to taxis on nearby frequencies.  Russia uses 5 kHz steps for CB and a strong FM signal on 26515 kHz / 26.515 MHz caused the CW beacon signal to disappear.  Pretty impressive for 8 watts!  Signal faded away for about 30-40 seconds around 1742 UTC, then came back only a bit weaker. 

It's awesome checking out these various receivers around Europe and Russia and hearing one of "HF Underground's own" beacon projects.  Keep up the good work!
