Over the last couple of days I have caught Hiker both in long dash and short mode.  With QSB, the long dash was the strongest.

Very light copy of Hiker at the moment 1530 utc.  sounds like short dashes today.  though with the QSB it could pass for ditters.

Will hope for prop to pick up while I listen around.
