Luis,
That's all well and good and thank you for posting that, however some of those beacons have not been QRV in decades !!!

I spotted 6 or 7 immediately that are not QRV, nor will ever be QRV again. . .

Sorry folks, please do not use that as a be-all to end-all list !

An up to date beacon list, in a sortable form are available at http://www.g0lfp.com/beacons Please report any errors or omissions that might have crept in. The list was compiled by G0LGS, and is believed up to date.

Hi all
Many of you are simply re-using unreliable listings.
Its even a little disappointing to see a G station listing long dead GB3 beacons...
Just about all active 6m beacons are extracted from direct spot and dxcluster into
http://www.beaconspot.eu/
- and for Europe its pretty good for higher bands too
There you will find live info, tables and maps
Some could do the world a favour by removing old static listings of the internet.
- or encouraging updates by keepers or National Societies of the central databases such as the IARU-R1 table which is now on a modern database platform

PS and watch out for GB3NGI coming on line very shortly...

Thanks for your helpful reply.  If you would like to report any errors in/omissions from the list  in order to keep it up to date. Similarly, if you know of "long dead GB3 beacons...", you neglect to say which, that are definitely NOT returning to the air, they can also be easily removed from the list. Please advise, not criticise.
R1 listings are very useful, to people only interested in R1.

Sorry to be a bit too quick:)
For 50MHz - the Beaconspot  website does give worldwide results courtesy of the cluster
On the LFP listing:-
All Emley Moor amateur systems were pulled off the tower inc GB3MLY 70cm in March 2009
GB3LER 2m and 70cm are also defunct and wont return.
GB3NGI 70cm is 'planned' but not yet a reality, whereas its 6m cousin is due on line very soon.
cheers

Murray, Steve,

In the Database on my site GB3MLY and GB3LER (2m and 70cm) have been marked as 'QRT' for some-time (just like on the IARU R1 List) - I have however changed these entries so that they do not appear when the list is viewed from my site (that may not prevent them being shown on other sites that use my data).

Similarly GB3NGI is shown as 'Planned' for both 70cm and 6m and has been for some-time.

I have also added 23cm UK Beacons to my list.

If anyone is aware of information that is shown incorrectly on my site then please use the 'update' icon next to the beacon in the list to inform me.

Murray,

I see that does not work for a casual vistor (clicking most of the links in the menu does nothing) and you get no sensible indication as to why !

You have to login as Guest to use the site at all (for me it is not as clear that this is required as it should be) - and then some of the links become unavailable including the one that would seem to take you to a contact page.

WHAT A WASTE !

(I did register over a year ago, but I have not logged in for months and do not recall my login details or even which email address I registered with at the time).
