Good Afternoon:

I recently compiled a list of HF stations that continually transmit and are audible from my QTH in southern California. Then I programmed them in frequency order into the memories of my TS-590.  Now I can get a general indication of current HF conditions by simply stepping through my radio's memory channels.

The frequencies I programmed into my radio are:

Memory  Receive  Freq.
Channel  Mode     (kHz)                             Description
-------    -------   --------  -----------------------------------------------------------------

00         AM       2,500.0   WWV Fort Collins, Colorado
01         AM       3,330.0   CHU Ottawa, Canada
02         CW       4,213.0   WLO Mobile, Alabama. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
03         CW       4,214.0   XSG Shanghai, China. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
04         AM       5,000.0   WWV Fort Collins, Colorado (also 4,996.0 KHz RWM Moscow, Russia)
05         CW       6,317.0   WLO Mobile, Alabama. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station     
06         CW       7,039.4   M, Magadan, Russia. Single letter repeating beacon
07         AM       7,850.0   CHU Ottawa, Canada
08         CW       8,420.9   WLO Mobile, Alabama. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
09         CW       8,484.0   BLG, China. Maritime shore station
10         CW       8,636.0   HLW Seoul, South Korea. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
11         AM      10,000.0   WWV Fort Collins, Colorado (also 9,996.0 KHz RWM Moscow, Russia)
12         CW      12,916.5   HLF Seoul, South Korea. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
13         AM      14,670.0   CHU Ottawa, Canada
14         AM      15,000.0   WWV Fort Collins, Colorado (also 14,996.0 KHz RWM Moscow, Russia)
15         CW      16,809.0   WLO Mobile, Alabama. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
16         CW      19,685.5   WLO Mobile, Alabama. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
17         AM      20,000.0   WWV Fort Collins, Colorado
18         CW      22,383.5   WLO Mobile, Alabama. Continuous CW ID. Maritime shore station
19         AM      25,000.0   WWV Fort Collins, Colorado (also Espoo, Finland)

Please let me know if you have any corrections or additions for my list.

Thanks for the list. Given the loss of HF propagation these are useful in gauging current conditions vs. frequency.

Thanks for posting this list. This is the type of thing that can be very useful if one doesn't have access to the internet, such as when operating portable.

The Northern California DX Foundation's International HF Beacon Network is also very useful for assessing propagation in real time.
