lately Rocky (6626.2 KHz) and Rainy (6626.3 KHz) have been the most reliable for reception. I started hearing Rainy late this morning and an still hearing both of them with some fading right now at 16:32 PST here in Southern California.

The "A" beacon on 2097.3 KHz disappeared.

One of these days, I'd like to hear the 6 MHz beacons from out west. Maybe this winter.
