Check the upper beacon, 15kHz above me.   Same tuning criteria, but freq set set for 10489.999 will give you (one of the) CW tones at 1kHz

Not at the moment, this is for the really weak signal people.

I can do  higher power another day

No copy here at the moment on a 0.6m dish with a tree in the way. Any chance you could up the power for a short time so I can have confidence I am actually listening on the right frequency.

Running again, and it is weak this time.

+8dBm  direct from the synth  into helix antenna, so circa. -4dBW EIRP

CAn you drop it 3 dB. You are too strong - easy to see on the waterfall and waveform plots.
