Does anyone out there know where I can buy a 10 or 20 meter beacon, already built? Thanks  Harold  W4HEW

My 10m beacon uses a Freakin' Beacon Ider which was purchased at Dayton 2003. Built it at motel overnight and installed it on HTX-100 when I got home. Beacon IDer is running smoothly ever since.

This just keys the xmtr. You'll have to supply the xmtr and antenna. If you use a Radio Shack HTX-100 be sure to put it several miles from your QTH or else plan on not using 10 meters; the rig puts out all sorts of interesting "noises" across the band.

For more info on beacons check out hfbeacons@explore.plus.com

Good luck !

I just heard about one recently called the freakin' beacon.  Unfortunately, I don't have the url.  But, if you Google the name "freakin' beacon" I'm sure you'll find a link.
