Not knowing I was in the DX window, I have moved the beacon to 1845 at 2315Z

Thanks to W2VO for the nice polite phone call.

Due to the following, why not ? 

Oops-I heard you too but forgot to email! You were 599 on NE beverage. 

How about a 160 beacon today? Ken N2ZN


Somewhere around 1822.3 + or - is a beacon with a call sign, grid square
designator and code word(s).


I will have it attended to keep it legal, please send me what you copy to
k2db at k2db.com , the call sign, grid square locator (6 digits), the freq you
hear it at, the code word(s) and signal strength. 


Let's have some fun. It is running (CW) 0 watts (what my power indicator
reads) with an Icom 746Pro to


a 160 meter dipole/vee running on a line of 315 degrees to 135 degrees, at
52 feet in the center, 85 to 90 feet high on the end pointing at 315 and
down to 10 feet on the end pointing at 135 degrees.


It started transmitting at 1545Z on 1/6/2010
