OZ7IGY on Next Generation Beacons platform
Published on 26 January 2013 by Bo OZ2M

Today the 4 m OZ7IGY beacon has been migrated to the Next Generations Beacons platform http://www.rudius.net/oz2m/ngnb

The beacon is now frequency and time locked to GPS. The sequenced is timed to start at 00 second sending JT65C2 followed by a short pause then CW ID sending callsign and locator, then pause and carrier until next cycle. The nominal frequency remains the same, i.e. 70,021 MHz.

To decode JT65C2 tune your receiver 1270 Hz below the nominal frequency. On most radios this is a USB dial of 70,019730 MHz. The plan is to replace all the old beacons with the new platform as time permits.
Listeners reports and feed back are highly appreciated.
