Not too fond of the LWCA these days, so I will hold-off for now to sending my 22m beacon info. there, but I put on two days ago a pretty decent part-15 level ERP beacon "RR-dash" on 13562.85 or so on a 1/3 wave wire in the attic/loft of my shop building (wooden roof above it and just 5 layers of stout roofing paper and metal sheeting away from the wire), and with a series var. cap. peaking the signal (~50 pF or so) on a nearby FS-meter; and a walk out 1/2 mile from Keeler, CA here indicates it gets out good enough on groundwave to skip something into DX-land whereever!

I hope Chris S. in MD - super Blackcat apps too!  hope he hears it!

What with Es coming, and some today about 1130 PT on CB-5 from XE-land, and a strong 15 MHz WWV at noon PT today, there is good propagation on 22m today and with Es, and some F2 peaks will be great for DX, also.
