IBP = International Beacon Project. Beacons transmit for ten seconds on each frequency in turn in the sequence shown above. They send callsign at 22 wpm and 100 watts, then four 1-second dashes at 100 w, 10 w, 1 w and 0.1 w.

Equipment is TS-50, Cushcraft R-5 multiband vertical and a Trimble Navigation GPS receiver to ensure synchronization, with a control unit built by NCDXF.
