4096.850 KHz  slow dasher
4097.240 KHz  whooping fast dasher


Had to use an Arizona SDR to hear "A" on 2097.3 at this time of day http://kj7cat.com:8073/

No sign of Windy but the deserts are clouded over today.

DW is strong here at home. Its battery has a good voltage but it's the lowest I've ever heard with cloudy desert weather at the root of it.

4095.670 KHz  Desert Whooper.   BAT 12.6  OTMP 52  ITMP 57   PV 1


Using KFS

7998.950 KHz  Q with a fair signal but clobbered by radar or whatever that is

4095.700 KHz  Desert Whooper. Readable signal on the KX3.  BAT 13.9 OTMP 55  ITMP 58   PV 992 mA

As the nights are now longer and colder I see the Otmp and Itmp numbers drift within 3 degrees or so of each other. Then as the battery gets charged the separation increases rapidly
