BK - 329kHz - Rome, NY

BK - curiously named 'PLEIN' in beautiful downtown Rome, NY.

Talk about putting a beacon where it needs to be: This one has one of its antenna support poles on a traffic island, whilst the rest of it barely clings to life on the pinnacle of an acute road intersection. Keying is a bit spastic, and the offset (modulation frequency) seemed rather high when visited.
