Last 24 hour beacon logs, May 31 2009
« on: May 31, 2009, 2015 UTC »
Howdy all,

Have been paying a bit of attention to beacons in the last 24 hours, and have picked up a few.

2997.31   05/31/2009  0424 z   "A" beacon
4079.63   05/31/2009  0435 z   "TMP" beacon, and 79 degrees
4088.83   05/31/2009  0442 z   Dasher beacon
4095.87   05/31/2009  0138 z   Coxie dasher
4096.27   05/31/2009  0138 z   Hexie dasher
4096.62   05/31/2009  0138 z   Kelsie dasher
4097.26   05/31/2009  0138 z   Inyo-Whooper dasher
4102.33   05/31/2009  0454 z   "W" wind beacon
4103.80   05/31/2009  0458 z   "O" beacon
5205.34   05/31/2009  1827 z   Sally dasher
6626.39 and 6626.59   05/31/2009  1838 z   Rainy beacon
6626.51   05/31/2009  0120 z   Hexie 2 dasher
7997.94   05/31/2009  0613 z   "UFO" beacon
8000.56   05/31/2009  1803 z   "S" beacon
8000.82   05/31/2009  0612 z   Dasher beacon, about 96 dash / minute
8004.29   05/31/2009  2210 z   Pike 78/min dasher
8211.82   05/31/2009  0640 z   "OR" beacon

Several things of note in this batch:

The "O" beacon on 4103.80, I have never seen this before and it was very weak.

The "Rainy" beacon first showed up on 6626.59 and had _huge_ intrapulse drift.  20 minutes later it was on the more regular freq of 6626.39 and showed less drift during the pulse.

This was the first time I have grabbed the "UFO" beacon.

Screen shots of most of these can be found here:
