I wonder if Windy has been there all along but far too weak to overcome poor propagation?

Really glad to see some reports! I recently had my house fumigated so all of the antennas had to be removed before tenting.
I am now in the process of rehabbing the antennas and cables as well as add some new ones to install. It might be another week
before I can start receiving beacons here at home.
