Interesting. There is a CW signal there, bearly detectable and
not strong enough to be readable in socal.
0530 UTC.
Greece is a long way away. Pretty good for that
distance.

Thats a coastal rtty frequency, when not transmitting they often have
such a cw signal just so receivers can stay tuned in for when a rtty
broadcast begins.

Brian, that's maritime coastal station Olympia Radio SVO, in Greece.
They provide VHF and HF radio telephone and HF SITOR services to
vessels at sea. As it happens, I logged this station myself a few
nights ago (28 May) on the same frequency at 0318Z.

The transmitter is located at 37-36-11.7N/21-29-11E, which is at
Pirgos, but is remotely controlled from Athens.

You can find QSL address information he

Use a narrow filter and you will find the marker underneath the coastal
station

Could be, but it is the correct sign for that coastal station.
