7039.300 KHz  Russian "K" beacon, up to 25 dB over the noise with some quick fades

4095.650 KHz  DW the Desert Whooper. +20 dB over the noise.  BAT  13.1   O TMP 52   I TMP 59   PV  0
4102.840 KHz  Windy. Good signal, +20 dB over the noise. Light breeze. Temp 53  B is 11.9

Both heard on both of my HF radios but Elecraft Panadapto is handier for gauging signal strength..
