Hello, all...

I just received a nice eQSL for my reception of the Desert Whooper.

Thanks to the team!

OK Mike

Weak signals into OK City at 02:05 z - just above the noise floor.

S6 with S3 noise floor and lots of static (QRN) here tonight in OKC.

- All Good People (Yes)

I copied the DW beacon early this morning in Oklahoma City EM15.

0605-0652 UTC
Elecraft KX2 and attic mounted dipole oriented EW

Notes: Very weak signal but whoops easily heard. QSB prevented copying all of the Morse message; portions copied: "DW" "BAT" "TMP" "66" There was a lot of atmospheric noise (QRN), so I had to use quite a bit of attenuation on the receiver.

Thanks for operating this beacon!

OK City

Late tuning in, but S7-S8 in OK City on my new Yaesu FRG-100. Very nice sounding audio.

S6 signal here in OK City at 04:30Z with some noise but little to no fading. Thanks for the program!

S4 here with a lot of atmospheric noise.

Good signal into OKC - S5-6. Nice audio.

0109 utc - “Lonely “


Good signal into OKC: a solid s6 with little fading. Enjoying the Clapton guitar work.


S1-S5 with QSB here in Central Oklahoma.  There is some sort of occasional pulse-like noise too.  :-\  However, clearly copiable.

Sign off at 0253z "This Radio Tango America signing off."
