Beacon failure

ChangeDetection.com once again alerted me to a change in the NCDXF/IARU International Beacon Project status page so that I can manually update the beacon status file for VOAProp. I think it is worth a comment on the fact that 7 out of the 18 beacons appear currently to be off the air. This is the most I can recall being off at the same time. Some have been off for months. If you rely on the beacons to see whether a band is open, you may think conditions are worse than they really are. I hope all the beacons are soon restored to full operation.
