I've been hearing a cw station lately on 7.039 that sends "K" over and over without identifying.  I'm located in Oregon and it sounds fairly weak out here. Is this a beacon of some type?  I'm also hearing on some nights another station that sends "M" over and over (almost the same frequency).  But it isn't on as often.

Can you tell what direction it's coming from?

Hi George,

The "K" beacon is one of several of the so called "cluster beacons" or "single letter beacons" coming out of Russia.  See the following Web pages for greater details:
