Rocky and Rainy
« on: December 13, 2017, 2241 UTC »
Has anyone copied Rocky or Rainy on 6626 recently?  Its been a couple of weeks at least since I last heard them.  Have tried a nearby receiver on the global tuners with no copy there either.

Thanks, Mark

Checked for the 6 Mhz beacons around 1740 utc (Friday) and found Hexy2K coming up out of the noise.  Have not heard it in a couple of weeks.  So checked on Rocky and Rainy, which I have not heard since late last year, and found Rainy (6626.2) doing well.  It was in and out for about an hour.  Never heard Rocky.  Tho a couple of times I thought I was going to.  For me it looks like it was bad prop and noise on my end that kept me from hearing them for so long.
