Hi,

just now (23-Oct-2015 // 10.30z) I could copy that beacon (from JO62SK, Berlin Region/Germany) with a good signal RST 569 (on my DX-88 outdoor vertical) again - my location JO41WM. On my back-up 10m longwire antenna (3m AGL) it is even RST 579. Anotjher nice lunch break ;-) Hope I can get any QSL ;-)
