With all the windsurfing, waterskiing, swimming, canoe paddling, and general fun-in-the-sun, don't expect to hear me on the air very often!
The beacon was a TS-50 running 10 watts into a Cushcraft MA5V vertical tied to a tree, one meter off the ground. The location was FN04vn.
I have reports of the beacon being heard in Europe in July 2006. Unfortunately someone is having a joke at our expense. Sorry!
Freakin' Beacon Controller Program
Owners of the Freakin' Beacon controller will be interested in a program I wrote to set up the beacon message from Windows. FBeacon is a simple user interface for setting up the message and control parameters.
