I've tried many times for SD, but never been able to hear it.

Hearing the usual suspects now in the 4096 range, conditions don't seem as good as yesterday morning.

Looks like the 6 dots and a dash beacon on 4096.0 might be coming in here, very faint on the waterfall.

4079.62 TMP
4096.26 dasher
4096.6 dasher
