DRNK, 6902 kHz, 0240 UTC, September 22, 2014

DRNK beacon turned on 0240 UTC, 6902 kHz, September 22, 2014.

I saw it come on air at 0240 UTC.  I had one of the SDRs centered on 6950 kHz, watching the waterfall covering the 6900 to 7000 kHz range for pirates.  There was nothing on 6902 kHz, had been nothing for the last 45 minutes I had the SDR turned on, a short bit of high speed CW was sent on 6902 kHz, then into the dashes and IDs as seen from DRNK before.  Unfortunately I was not recording, so I have no idea what the high speed CW was saying.

I have not seen this beacon for several days now, no sign at all.  But it is certainly there tonight, although maybe not as strong as in the past.
