2097.310 KHz  Letter A peaking about +30 dB above the noise and fading to barely readable
4096.370 KHz  Haystack +5 dB above the noise with fades

no sign of Windy.  During the day the battery voltage does not seem to charge past 12.8v from what I have heard so far. Before it went off the air I could hear it all day long.
