Are these still operational? They used to give an ident in morse/cw. From what I remember they were in use at ports, harbours and lighthouses. Used to listen to get log as many as I could 20 odd years ago, also good for CW receiving practice!

The aeronautical NDB's are still out there, not as many as 20 years ago but plenty.
