One upon a time ago when the AM-BCB was not so log-jammed with an insane amount of NA stations (FCC overpopulation!) and before the Expanded-Band nonsense began (1620 to 1701 kHz), the FN beacons were amazing, along with skywave from FMing cordless phones - rec. in the south-Puna District Hawaii (Sept. 1989) recorded via an ICF-7600D and a 10m wire at Kamoamoa Campground in HVNP (now under lava) on a long 130 km bike ride from Hawaiian Acres.
