I'm not sure I've ever heard the short dasher on dot 6 but Hexie's one second dash is pretty reliable in the evenings here.

Post by: vlfradio on July 03, 2014, 0427 UTC
4096-7 kHz - Jim listen just after sunrise for the "Inyo Whooper" on 4097.25 daytime only within view if the Inyo Mountains,  Then about 0830 when Coxie down in Joshua tree 4096.0 or so wakes-up. The other unknown short dasher is there too - about 4096.6 or so - hrd on 21 June near Lone Pine Peak...

Speaking of Arizona, have you heard the temperature beacon on 4079.6 at all?  I heard it a few years back when I was first told about it but in recent listening I have failed to pick it up.

Title: Re: Evening Beacon
Post by: Teotwaki on January 07, 2015, 0156 UTC
forgot to post up yesterday at 6PM tht I had a decent copy on 2097 "A" and a super weak "X" on 4094.5

Today "X" is pretty strong and pretty good copy on "A" too

Edit: adding in Hexie on 4096.24   weak with fading
Title: Re: Evening Beacon
Post by: Teotwaki on January 10, 2015, 0204 UTC
weak "X" on 4094.5 that is clear enough and has minimal fading. Will check a few others but nothing so far. Sometimes I just leave the radio on one frequency to see if something rises up out of the noise.
Title: Re: Evening Beacon

I've seen it maybe 300 Hz high but never 1300 hertz high
Title: Re: Evening Beacon
Post by: Teotwaki on January 15, 2015, 0422 UTC
So tonight I tuned in WWV at 10 MHz and it was centered on the Elecraft KX3 radio and on the PX3 panadaptor with a +/- 1 KHz span on the display I then tuned to the "A" beacon and tuning to 2097.3 KHz centered the carrier.

Brandon, I've never used a WiNRADIO product but I'm wondering if tuning it 1KHz high to 2098.3 KHz was to get a 1KHz tone out for the CW audio?

Local rain has cleaned the air out a bit. I am hearing "X" pretty well on 4094.5 KHz
Title: Re: Evening Beacon
Post by: Teotwaki on January 30, 2015, 0302 UTC
2097.3 KHz  "A" is booming in with minimal fading. Normally it is down in the noise floor of my PX3 panadaptor but tonight it is peaking about 22 dB above the noise.

4094.5  "X" is weak but readable

Congratulations on the catch. I searched the forum but did not see any discussion of X's location but if there is we can discuss it there. Because X is not a legal transmitter it is likely that the true location will never be made public.

Post by: Teotwaki on April 30, 2015, 0358 UTC
Right now I have an extremely strong signal for the "A" beacon with minimal fading on a slightly lower frequency of 2097.300 KHz. Maybe a result of the early hot weather?

I have a very weak "X" beacon on 4094.500 KHz

The last few days have been so devoid of beacon signals I kept wondering if somehong was wrong with my station. Basically nothing in the morning, Afternoon or evening. Finally tonight I am hearing a good strong CW letter "A" on 2097.300 kHz and am camping on a few other frequencies to see if anything rises out of the noise.

Well hallelujah!

Earlier today I was lamenting the dearth of 4 MHz beacons poking through the ether. I left the radio sitting on Hexie's frequency of 4096.240 KHz and while I was eating dinner I heard Hexie rise up out of the noise  at 19:50 PST! It faded to barely audible after a few minutes and occasionally rises up a bit.

Title: Re: Evening Beacon
Post by: Teotwaki on August 26, 2015, 0310 UTC
20:00 PST

"A" beacon on 2097.300 KHZ with mild fading from barely readable to sometimes almost 20 over the noise floor. It has drifted down from earlier observations of 15 Hz high so possibly so it may be related to local temps.

I checked 18 discrete beacon frequencies as well as 9 groups of Russian cluster beacons. I will now park on some of the discrete frequencies for a while to see if anything rises up out of the noise.

The 4 MHz beacons are going through deep fades. On other nights I thought I had seen something new, a dasher around 4096.2 and it is there tonight. Maybe Coxie running high in frequency? Just reread and it was a daytime only beacon.

4095.9-- KHz   Viking, briefly there

4096.360 KHz  Hexie, weak
Title: Re: My Evening Beacon Log
Post by: Teotwaki on June 14, 2016, 0457 UTC
Dang, was trolling through the Auroral Chorus site again and saw that I had overlooked the beacon called Haystack:

"HAYSTACK bcn runs 3 sec dash on 4096.35 kHz 24/7 late 2015".  http://www.auroralchorus.com/4096khz3.htm

That must be what I thought was Hexie (which is a shorter dash).

So a summary from their web site:

4095.900 KHz  Coxie, 4 sec dash, day only
4095.940 KHz  Viking, 3.3 sec dash, 24/7
4096.240 KHz  Hexie, 1 sec dash, 24/7
4096.350 KHz  Haystack, 3 sec dash, 24/7
4097.250 KHz  Inyo Whooper, day only


Right now on my waterfall display I can see both Viking and Haystack. It is just possible that Hexie is coming up out of the noise every so often but I think I see a good trace on the Waterfall display.

Not strong, but good copy on A tonight at 0316z.  I don't listen for this often, but when I do it's pretty much always there.  (I've never listened other than evenings/night).  Even on my low, short doublet, this one has a 'qso quality' signal tonight.

Sure miss the days where I could tune in to 4096 and hear 3 or 4 going at one time....

Interesting, I also used to be able to hear several on 4096, but no more. Something has changed, propagation overall?
