1123 UTC 07 MAR 2021:  "TMP 56 B 115" with slow wind.  Exceptionally quiet conditions this morning, otherwise I doubt I would have heard it.

Windy is again ditting away with a quick breeze and coming in 10 to 20 dB over the noise on the KX3/PX3
TMP  63
B  11.7

Frequency seems to pull downwards a little when sending Morse Code
