Hi Chris!  Be sure to listen on 4094 as well for the "X" beacon.  It has been as strong if not stronger than the dasher on 4096.  Though I should say that propagation coupled with local noise here has made all the beacons tough catches here of late.  We probably could use a good rain storm to clean everything up, but it will most likely be snow instead.  The 8000 KHz freq has been interesting of late.  From morning to evening.  Not sure what is going on.  Nothing regular enough to be sure!!!

I have A again, but nothing on 4094 or 4096.

8000 has indeed been interesting, I may park the radio there and see what pops up.

Once again I am only hearing A this morning, at 1041z. The signal is a bit stronger than the last few days, so perhaps that is a sign that low band propagation is starting to improve.
