Nice detective work, but those aren't the idents the beacon sends.Searching the FCC ULS from 404KHz to 406KHz resulted in.....

Of course this is just US licenses.
Probably is D5, perhaps the D was not working that night. Definately heard the 5, but no D.Could it be D5 at Mac Arthur River, Sk, Canada, which is actually on 406?
There are no single digit/letter ID's that I know of, it's usually 2 or 3 characters in the ID. And the frequency it appears to you on would be dependent on your receive accuracy and resolution, and mode you used to receive it in.
Edit. Oops. I see Ridgescan already mentioned D5.
Thanks for the reply. Glad someone else has heard it also. Checking back in my log books, I noted receiving it back in 2009 also. It was very weak here in Central Alabama. I am using an ICOM 718 with a 40 meter sloper for an antenna. Will keep listening and let me know if you ID it.I am in West Palm Beach, Fl., abt 70 miles north of Miami.
I was hearing it here for past few months almost like a local.
The ground wave coverage at those frequencies is very short--do not hear it today.
John, if you're hearing it in the daytime, it is closer to you than me. I only hear it late at night and then it is extremely weak here in Birmingham. Let me know if you get a fix on it.Hi guys. Happy New Year.
I am in West Palm Beach, fl.--abt 70 miles north of Miami.
I put a post on here a few days ago that I could here the beacon here then.
Well--I can hear it again. It's about an S5, but definitely copyable. And its one in the afternoon so ground wave propigation sucks at this time of day.
I can't hear some of the south Florida LDF airport beacons, so this thing must be close.
will dig out my LF RDF gear and start DF'ing this puppy.
Will keep u guys informed.
WHAT i NEED ARE GOOD BEARING FROM TOWNS NORTH AND SOUTH OF ME--FORT PIERCE AND FORT LAUDERDALE. With a RDF bearing from me, we can locate source.
