    5 MHz activity in SV

    Following the last information on 5MHz activity from Greece we would like to spread the word. At first the beacon is ready and it has been tested for several days now. Frequency is 5398.5 MHz (CW) to avoid interference with normal use of the channel mostly in the UK. It runs 30W into a non resonant antenna for the moment.

    You may look for it mostly between 1900-0600 z. It may be off for some days due to other HF activities at the test site, so try to listen regularly. The beacon is expected to run flawlessly from the beginning of 2012.  The beacon sends the following sequence at T+15 seconds (T= minute 00, 15, 30, 45 every hour)
