      The former K8EB six meter beacon is back on the air, with a few
      small changes.

      It's now located just north of Holland, still on 50.065 MHz.

      The call sign changes a bit, from K8EB to K8TB

        Al, The TX runs 5 watts, figure 3 db loss on the coax, and the omni is essentially 0 gain ( a dipole wrapped around), so the ERP would be around 2.5 watts. 73
