 ....................
BEACON OFF AIR...................

                                    
NEW FREQUENCY - 28.202.8 MHz( OLD - 28.243.00 )
Problem with cable in area. Comcast "On Demand Back Signal" runs
around 28.440.00, so it was bleeding in or something. (Back Signal)
Comcast has "Birdies" in the 28, 50, and 144 Mhz HAM Bands.

The KB1QZY Beacon operates 24/7/365 continually, to help aid 28 MHz propagation
out of Western Massachusetts. Power outage or maintenance will cause the beacon
to be temporarily off the air and operation may be intermittent due to local conditions.

useless sometimes in night time hours)
