This morning when Stumpy came online the pause between dits and the dit length is changed.  I do not try to catch it every day, but the last time I did (a few days ago) it was still about 22 seconds from dit to dit, and dit length about 0.17 sec.  But this morning I caught the turn on at about 1429 UTC, and it was 19.37 seconds dit to dit, and dit length is only 0.15 sec.

I thought at first it may be a "just turned on" thing, but an hour later it is still on the same spacing and length.  Also, the freq is slightly higher than it has been.

Checking this ditter for the first time in a week or so I see it has changed rates again.  Right now there is about 16.8 seconds between each dit.
