I switched back to the KX3 & PX3 and am hearing "A" on 2097.3 KHz

It seems that "X" on 4094.5 KHz is just coming above the noise

19:50 PST on May 18

The last few days have been so devoid of beacon signals I kept wondering if somehong was wrong with my station. Basically nothing in the morning, Afternoon or evening. Finally tonight I am hearing a good strong CW letter "A" on 2097.300 kHz and am camping on a few other frequencies to see if anything rises out of the noise.

"A" beacon with a very good level of signal tonight on 2097.300 KHZ. I can clearly see the Morse code pattern for A on my PX3 waterfall display
