QRP beacon
« on: August 10, 2021, 1555 UTC »
I have been hearing the ID QRP on the 4094 khz beacon freq.  for about two weeks.
Some times around 1100utc or 1130 utc and some times I get it around 0200 utc .
I was surprised no one has reported it..so I thought after about two weeks of hearing it
I thought I should mention it.
Often I hear the W and the DW beacons ..

Thanks for posting the log!

Where are you located and what are you using to hear the beacon? The info would help us to see if we might hear the signal at home or have to try a kiwi SDR.

I caught this one Friday and again Saturday morning, early, like the 11 to 12 hundred utc time.   I hope that it does not disappear again because I reported hearing it.  One never knows.+

Heard it here in Northern CA @ 1250Z, just above the noise and OTHR QRM. Sends 'Q', slow CW.
