CZ Beacon back on the air
« on: October 05, 2012, 2206 UTC »

I believe I am just starting to hear the CZ beacon here (Northern UT) at 2150 utc this afternoon.  I have it on about 11428.830.  I don't recall if it moved around with temp or voltage changes.

CZ beacon is 22442 here in Chicago @ 1900z. Very heavy digital QRM coming from something near my house, but the beacon is clearly audible.

Not a great signal here, but not bad.  I bet it will improve as sundown aproaches.
