Dits 6619.2 0107 UTC 7 Jan 2016
« on: January 07, 2016, 0109 UTC »
I am getting some occasional dits on about 6619.2 kHz. Not sure if this is a beacon, or something else.

I noticed this while looking for the beacons around 6626 that I have never heard.

Nothing on 6626 this morning, but I do have something sending dits on about 6566.6. About a 5 second period, but it does not seem to be exactly regular, or I am missing some of them, it is fairly weak.

Changing to a different antenna, I see a stronger signal, and there is a data burst after each dit. So... not a CW beacon.
