Russian Naval beacons
« on: October 20, 2011, 2240 UTC »
UTC 2230
The Russian cluster beacons are storming in with very strong signals
Of particular interest is the "C" beacon (Moscow) 7038 Khz coming in 20db (+/-)
over the noise. Absolutely sounds like a local signal. Good conditions
with the sun shining down here in Central Florida

in the mornings at sunrise in the eastern CA desert, the eastern russian beacons on about 7038-7039 kHz (M, F, and a third I can't recall at this moment) are very strong and not same ones as heard in eastern USA at sunset there... often the three eastern Russian beacons are accompanied by an ongoing ham lsb qso daily there on 7040 LSB - like a sort of wierd broadcast, and these ham signals sound s.e. Asian (or Philippines) in language...
