DIW ?
« on: January 04, 2021, 1116 UTC »
Anybody log  198  DIW  Dixon NC lately, say within the past 10 days or so ?
Usually a regular in here but not lately.  Propagation good to the south this morning,
329 Charleston SC and 344 Jacksonville FL both booming in but DIW not a peep.

DIW has been on and off intermittently over the last couple of weeks.  I don't think it has been NOTAMed, just sickly.

OK, thanks.
Thought it may have gone the way of CLB.

noisy conditions so gave DIW a try... heard it vy weak
way down in the mud just after 0900Z.

DIW with fair signal in here this morning,
otherwise not been hearing it the past couple of weeks.
Either the prop is weird or this beacon is sick.
