HiFER "AN" 13563.0
« on: October 20, 2018, 1551 UTC »
Heard last night a few Hz above 13563.0 just before 0100 Z sending "AN" with Farnsworth spacing. Anyone know who it is?

Copied it again tonight, around 0200 UTC this time. I'm guessing it's probably from California.

I don't think the CW is Farnsworth spaced after all, after having clearer copy with less QRM and QRN tonight.  The frequency did jump around a bit, though, enough to hear sometimes.

According to a recent message on the LWCA message board, it is located in Somerton, AZ. A Black Cat Systems Kit operating into a Hamstick vertical mounted on a metal roof building. The system is solar powered.

I must listen out, the Arizona beacons are often audible copy here in Northern California.
