My second beacon found...

WAS

It was extremely difficult if not impossible to hear and ID by ear. I was able to see it on the waterfall once in a while and eventually confirm the ID with at least one clear visual when it faded in just long enough for a few rounds ID's in a row. Looks to be about 1200 miles away from my QTH.

Hello all,

I finally logged my first 22 meter beacon today. It was K6FRC in California. I am located in Minnesota. I had to really dig it out of the mud. It would fade in and out but I was eventually able to copy the full ID a number of times. About 1,800 miles.
