2blackswan2,

It would also be very useful to at least have your location at the state and county level as well as what you used to receive the signal

Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your location; that helps a lot. For those of us in the US we'll have to use SDR receivers to listen for the C beacon.

A few years back I visited Rome and enjoyed it very much!
