I was on 40m last night. Right at 7039 kept hearing a keyer sending the letter p very slowly. It lasted as long as I was listening,and I`ve heard it other nights. It sounds like a memory keyer,not a live operator. Apparently it`s being sent all night long.

I heard it also and again early this morning, thought it might be some kind of beacon station, did a search but couldn't find it. Probably a numbers station rounding up  the troops.

Either that or someone died and left their radio on!

  Letter "P"  is a Russian navigational beacon from Kaliningrad.  Do a Google search for "letter beacons."  There is a list of the letters and locations.  Hope this helps.  72/73 from k5teb, Terry.
