Fast Walker 8498 Khz

After logging this signal for the past couple of weeks
I have decided to post it.  The dit rate is around 90-100 dits/min.
Do to catching it only on fad ups and not hearing it solid I have estimated
the dit rate.  All my catches have been about 30 minutes before sun rise and a few
catches at sun down.  The frequency seems stable.


P.S.  I gave the name Fast Walker to it, because it reminds me of what the Airport and Military
 radar guys refer to UFOs as Fast Walker. Call it what you want.
