6700.530  KHz  Hexie2K about 15 dB above the noise, no fading
4097.343  KHz  was expecting the Whooper but this is more like a long dash. Maybe just local RFI
4095.992 KHz  Viking high in frequency. Very strong. Warmer temps out in that area.

4102.346 KHz good strong signal and on the waterfall I can now see it is very slow FSK and not Morse.

6700.965 KHz  Sort of a slow dasher, peaks about 20 dB above noise

I say "sort of" because there are points with brief pauses. I've not tried counting dashes or looking for a pattern just yet.

4102.345 KHz  Windy? Great signal. Interesting pattern.
6626.400 KHz  Rainy back again, good signal
6700.940 KHz  "Dasher" with seemingly random pattern. Right now there are two seconds or more between dashes
7998.430 KHz slow dashes but not continuous. Maybe 6-7 in a row then a gap which could be fades. Good signal otherwise.
