WEDG The Wedge 1620 AM 1744 UTC 14 May 2021

The usual SIO 333 or so signal. WEDG was missing for a week or more, so I decided to check the antenna (south beverage) and noticed the wire from the transformer to ground rod was disconnected, probably chewed by a critter.  It helps when the RF has a complete path to flow  ;D
