Saturday 29th February 2020:

2.689MHz  VM6  0921z  519 report.
2.639MHz  ZN9  0804z  569 report.
2.537MHz  HA7  0905z  559 report.
2.361MHz  QM9  0903z  539 report.
2.325MHz  FV1  1550z  319 report.
2.245MHz  AI1  0912z  529 report.
2.206MHz  ZW6  0918z  519 report.
2.205MHz  BH4  0918z  559 report.
2.165MHz  SS3  0907z  559 report.
2.100MHz  WQ5  1510z  529 report.
1.865MHz  GE0  0919z  519 report.
1.817MHz  TMT  0921z 539 report. (misfiring beacon, txer/battery issue)
1.795MHz  QG5  0928z  539 report.
1.716MHz  EG5  0927z  549 report.

Note: 1.817MHz "TMT" has been around for well over one year with an erratic transmission, this suggests there is either a transmitter fault (miss keying) or there is an issue with the battery voltage fluctuating/unstable.
