Low noise floor so even though this signal is a little it is still good copy

CW "A" beacon on 2097.315

Nothing received on other frequencies at this moment which is 06:40 local

Amazing, I actually hear A this morning on 2097 !!

Otherwise, nothing being heard, and I have not heard any of the 4 MHz beacons in months now.

Once again, A is all I hear, around 1030z. Nothing on 4 MHz.

I had a quick spin this morning at 06:25 local and "A" was all that I heard. I need another radio expedition out to the desert!

I've not been able to listen for the last few days and update my log. Today I am up a little earlier than usual.

4094.500  "X" is very weak with fading

Nothing on 2018.300, 2025.100, 4097.600, 4086.700, 4096.240, 4096.600, 4097.250, 4102.300, 4106.860, 5205.300, 6626.200, 6626.300, 6668.00, 6700.500

For the last couple of hours I have been parked on 6626.450 KHz and listening to the unknown transmitter that makes a sort of fast bwip-bwip-bwip sound. The waterfall pattern is interesting.

Right now I am hearing Rocky coming up out of the noise but no signal from Rainy yet.

30 Apr 2015, 1025z: Every so often, A will pop up out of the noise on 2097. I have not heard A for a few days, and I have not heard any of the 4096 beacons for months. Not even during the winter.
