I don't think any beacons left for them?

Hi Michael, still one at least on most airports or on the approach path, but I'm not sure if there are any maritime costal ones left. These all operated in the MW band and operated an ADF receiver in the cockpit.

I have one of those, looks like the Aquaguide 705 in the link but it is badged "Fujion" and has a band covering about 1.8 MHz - 4 Mhz instead of CB. I think the last time I powered it up this band had stopped working.

A friend of mine found it in a Marina skip and rescued it for me knowing my interest in "radio stuff".

No UK marine RDF for years now, but the ubiquitous "Seafix" can still be found at any boat jumble.
