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.

fade up with long chains of dashes.

This morning at 1130 utc Mini was really coming in well.  Solid copy.
