A low power 137Khz beacon set up test has just started from WD2XDW, some 1
mile South of Anchorage International airport Alaska, BP41XD.
The frequency is 137.7738Khz and is presently continuous carrier with cw id
at 6wpm every 5 mins or so.
Transmissions commenced on this frequency at 0001Z 28th July 2003
Output power is just 0.5W into the array so a couple of mW erp. The
antennae is a 32m vertical with a lot of capacitive top loading, bottom
loaded and earth radial /electrode system.
Im expecting, with luck. that the main tx will be on line later this week.
