HI has appeared for the first time today here in central AZ. 19:56z 09MAR2019.

Logged it here also.
Then it distinctively went off the air while monitoring it.
 
It seems to transmit on an irregular basis.
When checked 2 hours ago, negative copy.

I agree, I do not think it is on the air continually. I as well have seen it just appear all of a sudden as well as disappear. Does not always seem to coincide with changes in propagation.

Just bounced back over to 7998 and HI has now returned.

09MAR2019 23:36z 7998.07 KHz,  fairly strong then fades out for a transmission or two.
