Not strong, but good copy on A tonight at 0316z.  I don't listen for this often, but when I do it's pretty much always there.  (I've never listened other than evenings/night).  Even on my low, short doublet, this one has a 'qso quality' signal tonight.

Sure miss the days where I could tune in to 4096 and hear 3 or 4 going at one time....
