A scan across the band from 13554 -13565 did not yield any other beacons...Ed you must be doing something right.

Solar Flux 70 A 5 K 1

Thanks tesla!

I have often wondered about the propagation W-E versus E-W. Alas, there is no-one to my West to compare - we need a Hawaii HiFER! But I do receive good, often amazing signals from the Carolinas, Illinois, typically until late afternoon (Winter listening) then everything fades away. I'm not sure how the dawn and dusk differences  affect signals at this frequency - I guess I should read up on 20 m propagation for starters.
