Audible in GA, Approx S3 here. 0019. Strange one....Every now and then I thought I heard a different character near the end of the groups....but that was probably fading.

It's about S5 to S7 here right now (~0630Z). Some QSB but not deep.

Maybe this weekend when I have a 40 meter beam at my disposal I can get a bearing from here if it's still active then.

I got a bearing on it from the vicinity of Peoria, Illinois. It's to the southwest, approximately peaking at 230-240 degrees. Another southwest desert mystery beacon?

It's pretty loud in this area - S5 to S7 on my loop at home and well over S9 on a 40m beam.

It seems to be gone tonight (March 4/5). I hope I didn't scare it off by posting an approximate bearing.
