At 1200 UTC today Brian, WA1ZMS, has commissioned a
new beacon with the
callsign WE9XFT from Virginia in USA, FM07FM. The
beacon operates on 70.005
MHz and is GPS locked. Callsign and a short message
is sent continuously in CW
at 18 WPM/90 LPM. It is a radio science beacon for
E-Skip propagation
purposes. ERP is 3 kW from a 3 el. Yagi at 600, i.e.
Europe, and at 1280 mASL.
The beacon is scheduled to run 24 hours a day until
September 1st unless there
are technical issues precluding that. The beacon is
non-amateur and sadly no
2-way QSOs can take place.

Please send any and all reception reports via e-mail
to Brian, WA1ZMS:
his_call at att. net.
