Beacons are radio transmitters which transmit signals on fixed frequencies, either continuously (VHF beacons) or on a time-sharing arrangement (HF beacons). If you can hear a beacon it indicates radio propagation is possible to that location on that band. By listening for beacons in various locations you can monitor conditions and plan your own operations.
