DK0WCY active?
« Reply #19 on: April 06, 2019, 1548 UTC »
Has anyone heard propagation beacon DK0WCY on 10144 kHz recently? I have not heard it on my own radios and I also failed to receive it on Twente WebSDR.

IK3NWX 10137.2 kHz
« Reply #20 on: April 12, 2019, 1135 UTC »
I just heard low power beacon IK3NWX from Monselice, ITA (JN55VF). Very difficult to hear and decode, even with a 150 Hz bandwidth, as it is within the always busy FT-8 band.

11:30 UTC  10137.3 kHz  IN3NWX/BEACON
