1.910MHz  CW  NN6  0944z  419 report.

NB:  An interesting observation is XY1 on 2.235MHz transmitting continuously, first logged at 0520z barely readable at 319 report and still audible at 1110z but now 569 report. Would be interesting to learn where this beacon is located as consistent signal despite propagation being poor and few other beacons logged. BX2 was last logged on this frequency back on 01st August but not heard this session, only XY1 continuous.  Sometimes up to three beacons can be heard using the same frequency.
