Great fun. I use an Icom 756 Pro III, LSB, and 1.8k filter
setting. It takes me about a half hour to scan the band, tuning
slow and stopping often, i.e. listening deep. Some signals are right
at the noise level. I'm thinking that a low pass filter in front of
the receiver to knock down the broadcast band would be useful. I'm
getting some mixing products and overloading due to a BCB station
about 2 miles away.
I love this radio stuff.

I recounted the beacons, I had copied and I
it was approaching 40 .......I only had 38 ......
You want to tune slowly , because the CW is so slow
that there is a pretty good gap before the beacon starts
If you do PSK you can look for the signals on the
waterfall as you sweep the band .
