I can hear DW on both of my receivers at home, Sedona Kiwi. Northern Utah Kiwi, all four KFS Kiwis.

BAT     13.7
O TMP  59
I TMP   50
PV       1958 (mA?)  This value steadily rose from a couple digits at 7:15 AM and BAT reading rose at the same time

I've been wanting to compare readings with my original posts from a year ago

BAT     13.8 
O TMP  45
I TMP   53
PV       1813

Likewise am easily hearing DW at home and on the same kiwis so signal strength appears to have held steady

I have a pretty good signal from DW right now at home. It seems February is a great month for good copy.

BAT    13.0
oTMP  37 
iTMP   47
PV      0

It's interesting to see the air temp keep dropping but there is a longer lag for the iTMP numbers to close the gap

good copy here at home. During the shorter days of the year Iíve seen the battery go as low as 12.6 volts in the hours before dawn. With the longer days Iím seeing 12.8 in the early hours, much the same as when DW was deployed a year ago. Also the outdoor temperature readings seems more stable and when the air is really cold there is a much larger delta from the iTMP readings
