4095.650 KHz  Desert Whooper. Fair signal on the KX3, S9+ on KFS SE. BAT 12.9  OTMP 63  ITMP 72   PV 1
4102.820 KHz  Windy. Very Weak signal on KFS SE. Slow wind dits. Telemetry almost unreadable  TMP 63   B 11.2

The only way to hear Windy is on a good SDR and that is still hit or miss. I can no longer hear it directly at my house.

I parked on Hexie's freq for a while and was rewarded with a weak signal slowly rising above the noise for about a minute.

this log is from 06:15 PST, lower outside temperature than last night and the lowest I've yet seen. The battery is a bit lower but still healthy given that it is running about 14 hours without a solar recharge.

4095.670 KHz  Desert Whooper. S9+ signal on KFS SE kiwi SDR,  BAT 12.7  OTMP 36  ITMP 43   PV 0

this log is from 08:32 PST and the battery appears to be fully charged.

4095.670 KHz  Desert Whooper. S6+ signal on KFS SE kiwi SDR,  BAT 13.8  OTMP 38  ITMP 48   PV 5
