Fairly decent signal tonight at 0442Z amid the S9 static crashes. Some QSB but generally about S3 to S5.

Been hearing it fairly regularly here recently between ~ 0400Z and 0700Z (which is about the latest I've been staying up). Usually S2 or S3 up to sometimes S7 or so.

I didn't hear it at all last night (Aug 13, ~0500Z). Not a trace or a peep. Maybe it was down then?

Looks like it's gone again. I haven't heard it in a week now.

Conditions have been odd, though.

Last night I heard a local pipsqueak in the Australian outback boom in, but 500KW Radio Australia itself was barely budging the needle.

Peace!

I haven't heard OK since I moved about 3 years ago (and had some radio down time until getting the shack setup in the new house).  I only moved about 30 miles so I should still be able to hear it if it hasn't moved and is still active.  I'll keep an ear out for it to see if I can hear it again.  From this thread it looks like this beacon is intermittent. 
Happiness is a good antenna system.
