Ter informatie:
 
 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 60degr, 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.
