A new beacon in F land is very welcome but sadly no sign of it here (IO91QE), yesterday or today, not even on the W/F.

Hi John,

Just got round to looking for F1ZUY but am not seeing anything around that frequency .Probably obstructed locally .

Is it running now ?

A new beacon has appeared from France on 23cm:

Callsign: F1ZUY
Frequency: 1296.980MHz nominal (about 979.7 as I write)
Locator: JN19BQ
Modulation: A1A
Power: 5W
Ant: Big Wheel

Even with my tower fully retracted it is 539 on peaks and audible 100%
of the time despite the antennas being at or below roof ridge height of
houses in that direction, so it should be audible over a fair area.
