NDB2 heard again at 1844z 13 Nov 2018, with a somewhat chirpy signal. Seems closer to 13554.3 kHz. Copied on my KiwiSDR and 670 ft sky loop antenna.

Good catch!
Your kiwi SDR provides an excellent screen shot, Chris.
The waterfall trace of NDB2 chirping looks like katakana writing :)

"Your kiwi SDR provides an excellent screen shot, Chris."

Indeed it does.  From what I've heard of the KPH Kiwi online, these units also appear to have very good sound quality.  I'm an analog guy by nature, but this seems like a pretty good tool to have available also.

Yes, I have started to use mine locally for checking on beacons (22m and the 4 MHz pirate beacons). The waterfall update rate is ideal for looking at the CW. I'm really enjoying using the KiwiSDR, one of my better radio investments. (and I have a netSDR as well)

NDB2 popped up out of the noise briefly at 1528 UTC 22 Feb 2019 for one really strong ID, then back down again.

Back again, with a weak signal around 1535 UTC.

NDB2 weak but quite readable on the Airspy HF+ and 24 ft. vertical here at 21:50 UTC 03FEB2019. A fair amount of fading, out for a few seconds then back for a few seconds.
