I parked the radio on 7998 this morning, and did not hear anything until about 1125z when hiker quickly faded in. There seems to be a short window each morning when I can hear it.

Hearing Hiker here up to S3 at times with QSB.

Don't think I have heard the .300 dasher for a week or more.

Prop has not been very good.

And again 12 Sep 2016 from 1130 past 1151 with a good signal on 7998.3 kHz.

Some Link-11 below around 7990 and above around 8020.

Still audible at 1209z.

hi late post..
last night around 0135z when I tuned to 7998.00
I could see 7998.30 coming in pretty strong, audible
most of the time then around 0150z the .5 beacon started
come in but rather weak most of the time. It did get to the point of being audible
several times but then faded out for good.
.3 hung in there for some time
 going to go and see whats happening there tonight.

Hiker is exactly 20 dashes per minute...I have been able to count it accurately and there is no break in the sequence.
