I see ZN was heard...I got an e mail the other day saying there was a cluster of three beacons on 4070.3...this is possible and each is located in different places.
ZN is the lowest power one around 500 Mw but, ZT about 700Mw and GT 1.0 watts...

I can't confirm the accuracy of this e mail...but was told I could pass it on.


Thanks for the info! I hope to set up some radios out in Nevada's desert area next month so hopefully I might hear these three.

April 3:
A 2097 1015z weak
I heard one of the 4070.3 beacons, but it was too weak and there was too much static to ID it.

I got up early this morning and had very nice copy on GT as well.
A was S 8 on my old Hammerlund Hq180 and that was with the inverted L tuned to 4 Mc not 2 mc so A was going very well.

No sign of A on 2097 yet again. Maybe it is too late now for 2 MHz.
