Been overcast here the past couple of days so maybe not enough sun in addition to the battery if it is cloudy wherever Windy is. Sending "H" now, I don't know which is less charge on the battery "S" or "H" or if they have some other meaning.  Strong signal at 01:40 UTC 27 OCT 2020.

1014Z:  Heard on SDR recording from this morning, fading in and out right around the noise floor.   TMP 57 B111.   I narrowed the RX filter down to 20 HZ for this -- worked well and much easier on the ears.    No sign of the "L" beacon.
