222 Beacon ON 222.062 from EN34it. Plus VHF Beacon Lists Below…

   EDIT — 3:20pm Wednesday — it would really help if I included the beacon’s QTH.  It’s EN34it, Twin Cities, MN metro. 

   Good news from NLRS member W0ZQ Jon.  Here’s the info, in his own words:
   “The beacon has been repair(ed), the antenna and feedline replace(d), and it appears to be operational once again on 222.062 or a just a titch lower.  Thanks to Donn, WA2VOI, its PA is running 10 watts to a big wheel antenna up about 60′ and fed with 90 feet of LMR400.   I am keying the 28 MHz LO buffer, so I can hear bleed through here ….. its sort of loud ….. so any signal reports, especially regarding signal level and keying quality, would be appreciated.

73, Jon

(KC9BQA adds — those signal reports can go to w0zq (at) aol.com)

While we’re on the subject of beacons, remember that the strong WD9BGA beacon from EN53ba has been back on since late September.  It’s on 144.298 MHz and gets out a long ways.  

  It’s been a while since I’ve put up a link to beacon listings…
   http://www.newsvhf.com/beacons2.html   That’s for 144 and higher.  
   For 6 meters, use:  http://www.keele.ac.uk/depts/por/50.htm

    In fact, that www.newsvhf.com is a good link for V/UHF in general.   Lots of info in there.
