Which explains a strange transmission I used to hear
on AM 530 when I was a child in Broadalbin, NY.  There
was something that used to transmit a continuous
repeating morse code signal of "JJH" that I could not,
for the life of me, figure out.  Knowing this
information, I have just realized that signal was most
likely a navigational beacon at the Fulton County
Airport in nearby JoHnstown, NY transmitting very
near, if not on, 525 KHZ.  Only took me some 15 years
or so to figure it out (with "just a little" help from
this list)...
