COMMENTS

This sequence is infinite, see A189982 and Theorem 4 in GoldstonGrahamPintzYıldırım.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 17 2015
This is a subsequence of A005237, hence a(n) >> n sqrt(log log n) by the ErdősPomeranceSárközy result cited there.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Jul 17 2015
Sequence is not the same as A280074, first deviation is at a(212): a(212) = 2041, A280074(212) = 2024. Number 2024 is the smallest number n such that A007425(n) = A007425(n+1) with different prime signatures of numbers n and n+1 (2024 = 2^3 * 11 * 23, 2025 = 3^4 * 5^2; A007425(2024) = A007425(2025) = 90). Conjecture: also numbers n such that Product_{dn} tau(d) = Product_{dn+1} tau(d).  Jaroslav Krizek, Dec 25 2016

EXAMPLE

14 = 2^1*7^1 and 15 = 3^1*5^1, so both have prime signature {1,1}.
