JAPANESE LIGHTHOUSES




Patrick Martin came forward with this information.

Following is a list of the 28 stations operating in Japan.
All operate every hour for 1-21/2 minutes giving weather and ID info.
All operate on 1670.5 khz in the H3E mode. After the station location, the time the station is on follows.
Note: Many of these locations are not listed on a map as they are "Lighthouse locations" and not a town. All stations ID in a pattern like this: "Kakukyoku, kakukyoku, kakukyoku, (station name), (station name), (station name), ........(weather information), owari." "Kochiraha (station name) kurikaeshimasu......(weather information).........owari." Kochiraha (station name), kurikaeshimasu,.....(weather information)....owari. Kochiraha (station name). Sayonara."
