Re: [HCDX] LW Morse Code transmissions
You are in the non-directional beacons (NDB) band. Mainly low power
airport beacons plus a few marine beacons. Here in W Scotland I
regularly hear Canadian airport beacons, along with DDP-391 San Juan
International Airport, Puerto Rico.
The band runs from around 220 kHz (in amongst all the broadcasters) up
to around 520 kHZ.
OF (carrier frequency is 325 kHz with the OF offset +/- 400 Hz) is Filton.
