4095.70 KHz  Desert Whooper, 150 Hz whoop, telemetry BAT 14.0  oTMP  71  iTMP 77  PV  188? (signal fade)
4095.93 KHz  Drifting dasher, poor frequency stability
4097.29 KHz  Fast dasher
4099.90 KHz  New to me, sending Morse?
4109.50 KHz  Coast Slider, slow 400 Hz wide whoop
6627.20 KHz  fast dasher beacon, almost 1 KHz wide
6700.45 KHz  Hexie2K

4095.95 KHz  Drifting dasher, poor frequency stability
4109.50 KHz  Coast Slider, slow 400 Hz wide whoop
6627.20 KHz  fast dasher beacon eating up a lot of spectrum, almost 1 KHz wide

on the home receiver

4095.640 KHz  Desert Whooper is faint


Trying out the KFS kiwi SE SDR

4095.69 KHz  Desert Whooper, S6, 150 Hz whoop, telemetry BAT 14.4v  oTMP  88  iTMP 91  PV  1393mA
4095.95 KHz  Drifting dasher, poor frequency stability as it wanders 250 Hz up and down
4109.50 KHz  Coast Slider, slow 400 Hz wide whoop
4110.00 KHz  Fast ditter/dasher thing that shows up every 10KHz on KFS
6627.20 KHz  fast dasher beacon wasting a lot of spectrum, almost 1 KHz wide
6700.44 KHz  Hexie2K very weak


I didn't hear the "A" beacon on 2097.3 but that could just be poor morning propagation. That beacon does seem to be lower power than I recall

CS is a little weak on the KFS Omni such that the full 400 Hz sweep is not heard, maybe the first 150 Hz or so.. The start of the sweep is a little lower at 4109.27KHz, maybe due to the warmer weather. It will be interesting to see how many PPM it drifts back up in winter.
