394 MK...  this one is a bit of a mystery, a couple of databases show MK as Jackson TN.  However,  looks like an approach plate for Mc Kellar airport Jackson TN has 394 MKL MERSY as the IAF for ILS/LOC RWY 2.  Perhaps the beacon was formerly a LOM (outer marker locator) with two letter ID of MK (first two letters of associated localizer I-MKL) and maybe the OM (outer marker) was decommissioned and the beacon is now just a NDB with three letter identifier of MKL but is still keying "MK"...  idk, just a guess on my part.

btw...  nice logs  :)

Great log set, refmo!

I see you caught the TWEB on HLB 254.  I just noted that here in Chicago (it seems to have been missing for a while), so I am wondering if that is a recent fix?

FWIW, found an old approach plate (2013) for Jackson TN and for ILS/LOC RWY 2 approach it shows a NDB (not LOM) on 394 with ID of MK.  ???
