Heard this on Amateur Radio Newsline #2282. With Sporadic "E" still in play, this should make for an interesting catch! https://ei7gl.blogspot.com/2021/07/new-us-experimental-station-wl2xup-now.html
Since I did electrical training, for being an electrician, decades ago, I thought that I could always fall-back on that. Besides, what other field can you use trade terms like nipples, hickeys, and making male / female connections, without getting into trouble at work?

Another low-VHF beacon of possible interest is WE9XFT/WG2XPN on the 4m band at 70.005MHz. FCC has renewed the permit multiple times, and Wiki suggests it is still active as of March 2021.


AFAIK, it is a 3KW directional from Virginia to Europe, but even few watts off the backside could be enough for NA reception if/when the band is open.
