~1130 UTC 06 MAR 2021:  Slow QSB.  Occasionally rising above the noise floor, but not for long enough to decode (by ear) a full frame of the telemetry.

Getting a clear but weak signal on the Maryland HF underpants/underground  250 ft V Beam Antenna aimed to Europe as well as a few other receivers!

Weak but audible on my 900 ft sky loop antenna as well at 1031 UTC 15 Mar 2021. Actually the signal is starting to come up a bit now. Still dark here due to the change to DST, often reception peaks right around sunrise, perhaps a greyline effect?

There is some traffic on 4101 USB that is blocking any possibly reception of Windy right now.

DW is suddenly peaking 25 dB above the noise here at home. Something is up with the O TMP numbers. Earlier today they seemed "correct" but now some odd characters are being sent.  Seems the temp sensor is out of order?
