Possible Drift Net Beacon 1620 UTC 07 SEPTEMBER 2019
« on: September 07, 2019, 1650 UTC »
2010.013 kHz

Very faint CW, cannot decode, then followed by just carrier, then CW repeats.

First noticed around 1620z.  Still JBA as of 1650z.  This is between noon and 1 pm local time.

Listened for it a few times, nothing but thunder crashes. Just finished a remodeling project (upside was a new shack & new antennas, downside is now I'm broke). Next up are the 160m antennas. Planning a loop-on-ground & earth-mode dipole for receiving. Drift net season is just around the corner.
