Most times & frequencies posted are only an approximation.
Due to adulteration of the E.N.I.G.M.A. "designators" by others and not a match in the Conet Project they are never used.

4102.720 KHz  Windy. About +15 dB over the noise. Sounds like a good breeze is blowing

Morse sounded like 103 degrees temp and 13.4 Volts for the battery
