Yes, the beacon was on. at least between around 0300 and 0500 UTC while I was monitoring
it. Normal strength (for the 7W, low power mode).
There's a beacon status page at http://moonbeacon.dl0shf.de/status
, though I'm not
sure if it's 100% reliable as an indicator there's actually a signal on the air
since I don't think it actually monitors output power, just system status. It's
probably 100% reliable when it shows there isn't a signal though.

Hi all !
Anybody know if the beacon was "on" yesterday night ? ....
Is there a real time status of the beacon on the net ?
