Have you tried to hear Stumpy yet?  7000.65 kHz or so, varies slightly in freq over the day.  Very short dit every 22 seconds.  In the areas you were in it should have been pretty clear.

One of these times you come up to the high desert drop me a line before you do, maybe we can put a face to a name.

I did not know about Stumpy and it looks as if the beacon list has been updated a lot since I printed a copy a while back.

Will definitely keep you in mind when I run out that way for another radio expedition.
