April 30,
Mini has a new crystal and the Freq. is 7955.5 khz.
The owner of the beacon communicated through a third party
and asked me to put its new freq. up on HFU.  Its power is 4 mw
and sometimes less when the battery voltage drops.
Often the battery cannot be restored quickly after it drops
below 6 volts...thats why it is off the air for days on end.

At this writing I'm hearing Mini on its new freq. on occasional fade ups.
Mini is a dx challenge...Listeners with s9 noise floors are never going to hear it.
I don't know where it is located.

Begining around 0200 utc I started hearing Mini some very nice
fade up with long chains of dashes.

This morning at 1130 utc Mini was really coming in well.  Solid copy.
By 1200 utc it faded out.
