I was wondering where to report my logging this morning right in the 80m ham band.

I think I found it!  CW maybe 20wpm.


3597.02 khz   1615z   8:15am local time here in California.. Can only hear this one during my +/- dawn hours. Far east?

signal strength just above my S2 noise level.  Similar to Looking-Glass: 219-319 report at best

Apparently causing quite a stir on the ARC-5 reflector according to a friend.  Speculation that it is Chinese military.

S5 here into Northern CA with a fairly low noise floor.

Good choice of music..... Appreciate the Power

0046Z  announced power as 300W PEP

Heard it finally.  Been trying for weeks.  Maybe the smoke up here helped!

Very weak here into Shasta County CA, 500-600 mi north of the Mohave, fading into nothing for 4 or 5 minutes, then coming back.

0448Z   5644.033

Using a KX3/PX3 combo and a Pixel Loop, also hearing it on a 2 el 40m yagi

Coming in strong here tonight. 0420Z May 22.   4102.72

lots of dits between the W's, looks like a windy warm night.

I last copied this beacon in Feb 2015 on a camping trip to Death Valley, so weak almost imperceptible at the time. It's been many years since I last heard this at my home QTH.
