Getting up before dawn is too much trouble now but sometimes there is little to be heard so I'll park on one frequency for a while. Today it was the Inyo Whooper and just now it came up out of the noise for a minute. It sweeps from high to low so today the center was 4097.160 Khz with a signal that peaked 15 dB above the noise floor while it was there.makes me wonder if it needs new batteries and a better solar system.
