do you mean KZ?
if so I just barely got it, ten minutes of trying to copy with my 150 hz cw filter.

Actually was referring to the Kansas beacon 395  ULS.

Keep the logs coming.
Have heard a number of the British Columbia NDBs here but have never logged anything in WA, OR, CA.
So, keep the logs coming, gives me some beacons to seek.

oh, KS as in the state, not the callsign, That one isnt strong, but I have gotten it a couple of times, it seems pretty constant, although weak

That 344  BKU  Baker  MT beacon was reported to be of the air earlier this year but have also heard it here recently.
Good to hear it still on the air.  It must be running some power than typical (25w) because it usually has a good signal in here when we get
propagation to the west.

Thanks, That's good to know, That one isn't strong here. My log also says reported off the air, but there's no update on that newer than about half a year old.
