WRXI 6930.15 MCW 1153 UTC 21 Jul 2018
« on: July 21, 2018, 1154 UTC »
I noticed a carrier, then it started to send MCW. Too weak to copy.
Still going at 1214. Fading in and out, and even when it is in, too weak to get more than a character or two.
Looks like it went QRT at 1326.  Anyone want to claim this, or at least send me an eQSL?  ;D

Checking the SDR recording, this was coming in as early as 0545 UTC.

1044 WRXI WRXI WRXI WRXI.. repeated. Must be the call

Noted again at 1542 on 6930.13, carrier, not sure I hear any CW yet.
1536 The Who "Squeezebox"
1556 Off, carrier was 6930.137 by now.  I am not 100% sure this was WRXI, but fairly close in frequency, so logging it here for now.
