Hi!

26510 kHz would be correct here in the US, I changed the subject for you.

Thank you!

Thank you for reporting. Nice to know that it's working properly. :)

Kind greetings,

I checked three different KiwiSDRs (one in the UK, two in different parts of Russia) and was able to hear Common and Precious III on 26510 kHz / 26.510 MHz around 1720-1740 UTC on July 20th, 2017.  Keep up the good work, Zazzle! 

See the logs:

Hey R4002!

Thank you for pointing me to the logs. I likely never took notice of them without. :)

Hey,

Rodents really like my mains wires. This time I found one of the wires cut and with bitemarks on the insulation. I guess it happened approx 14 days ago. So, yeah, this one had a downtime as well. But it's up again by now.
