Thanks for the WM Report today. It's good to learn that it is landing somewhere else besides my property. The beacon transmits QRSS followed by regular CW.  It's amazing that the CW ID gets reported at least equally to the QRSS ID.

I am testing a new antenna on 630m wspr this evening, That band is amazing, but 22m is much more satisfying when a report is received.

Mike thanks for posting over here on HFU...
By the way how often does WM produce the string of three IDs?

Bill,  It takes a little over 5 minutes to send the FSKCW ID segment with a 3 second dit time. The CW ID segment is then sent.  Then it's lather, rinse, repeat.....  The letters "WM " are sent 4 times in both segments.

I visit this site on occasion, QRM is getting kinda bad on some of the others so I have been spending more time here.
