When I am spotting beacons in the DX cluster, my intention is to inform others about unusual reception conditions. So I will add a report to the comments, followed by one ore more exclamation marks. “(!)” expresses that reception ist a little better than usual. When adding a “(!!)”, the reception is extraordinay strong. A “norm nil” stands for “under normal conditions is no reception possible”.

If you spot a beacon, don´t forget to add a /B to the callsign. It marks the call as a beacon for automatic updates in online beacon lists like BEACONSPOT.eu by the UK MICROWAVE GROUP.
