I found this on Ebay, but I don't think it will work for me on the Hobie...

I have no connection to the seller, Ebay or anything else!

Are those still useable?

Are the beacons still broadcasting on those frequencies?

Would be a good backup to GPS, if so.

I don't know about the other's, but the center band on the unit would be used for AM radio stations. The AM band is 540–1610 kHz (or .54MHz - 1.61 MHz)

I forgot about aviation!!! per Wikipedia -

"NDBs used for aviation are standardised by ICAO Annex 10 which specifies that NDBs be operated on a frequency between 190 kHz and 1750 kHz,[1] although normally all NDBs in North America operate between 190 kHz and 535 kHz.[1] Each NDB is identified by a one, two, or three-letter Morse code callsign. In Canada, privately owned NDB identifiers consist of one letter and one number. North American NDBs are categorized by power output, with low power rated at less than 50 watts, medium from 50 W to 2,000 W and high being over 2,000 W.[2]"

The first band should be usable...
