Possibly Khiva in Xorazm region of Uzbekistan, still part of the Russian single letter naval markers or cluster beacons.  Pops up on unassigned frequencies quite often.
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.
