Beacon database entry has been updated so that 'nominal frequency' is now 3398.434. :thumbup:

I'm assuming someone will change the existing status from 'Off Air' to 'On Air' as appropriate.

The VK3RGI 3398.434MHz beacon database entry seems to have gone walkabout?

No Gav it's there. You need to search for VK3RGI on "any band". I'm guessing the 9cm filter is set to look between 3400 and 3500. The beacon is now on 3398.xxx

I updated it to active earlier on today.

Correct!
Search filter was 3400-3450 MHz.

Thanks for pointing this out, and it's now 3300-3450. :thumbup:
