I will report it here.

Good evening Zoli,

Thank you for the info.

The only one I heard is OK0EPB/B on 7,039.4 MHz.

And I asked for some informations, as it is not in QRZ or Buckmaster.

G0BVZ who is on this forum, gave me this information:

http://ok0epb.nagano.cz/index.php?page=Main+page

What a nice piece of Equipment!! Very interesting, it was the first time I saw a Beacon running this way.

A very nicepiece of technology.

For the other Beacons, I will try another night, especially during the week, when the band is more quiet.

Because tonight, it is full of RTTY stations right on those QRP frequencies.

As soon as I hear something, I will let you Zoli,

Thanks you again,

72 Michel

P.S. Yes the Russian markers are always coming here very well, between S-1 up to S-9 sometimes S-9 ++ and sometimes during the evening, the letter changed for another one.
I love QRP/QRPp & CW

Hi Michel,

I congratulations your DX beacons, tonight is very busy the 7 MHz. (RTTY contest)
I tuned my radio to 5 Mhz and I heard the

OV1BCN NVIS beacon on 5.290.0 (cw) at 18.34 UT. RST 579
Importan information is about this beacon on qrz.com. Look the timing periods.
It not QRP TX (30W), but his antenna is only 1m agl.

http://www.qrz.com/db/OV1BCN and
http://www.oz1fjb.dk/page8.html

Have a good luck!
