NM5DV beacon on 30m…

Dan, NM5DV is now operating a 1w CW beacon on 30m from grid square DM75. His blog is here, and he's doing a great job of writing about lots of his projects. Both of us also hang out of IRC on the irc.freenode.com network, in the #hamradio channel, and it seems like I'll idly muse about doing something, someday, and Dan will just order the parts and do it. 🙂

Check out this morning's recording of his beacon signal (interspersed with my own MV signal):

Addendum: Larry, W8LIW, sent this screengrab out to the Knights mailing list. You can see my "MV" at the edge, and also NM5DV's morse panning across the display.
