Here in the US we are convinced that Windy is off the air. When it was functioning the only CW it sent was the letter W.

Windy was located roughly in the expanse of the Mojave desert in Southern California.

Glad to see you check in! Iíll bet you can monitor all sorts of cool signals.


EDIT TO ADD: here is a recording of Windy sending telemetry of battery voltage & temperature  https://youtu.be/twokwXWFpnE
