Very weak but still recognizable signal here at home on the KX3

last Friday I was out in the southern back country of Death Valley. I put up a long wire and attached the KX3 and heard CS quite well.

I've tuned in at random times after dark looking for this, but no luck from my QTH. I did copy it on the KPH kiwi SDR c. 0450 UTC this evening, not super strong but perfectly readable.

I can hear CS on the Utah kiwi #1 but not on KFS at all. I do hear DW everywhere on all kiwis I pick. Interesting propagation

Looks as if CS has passed the 2 week mark without a hiccup, a good sign for it to be operating for many years to come.

I'm hearing it on the KFS Omni at the moment but not at home.

Good copy on the Coast Slider last night - up to S5 or so on my home RX (in northern CA). I note that CS is typically 1-2 S units weaker that DW at my location.

I hear CS with S3-S4 signals most mornings and evenings. At mid-day it often fades out, perhaps due to D-layer absorption. CS disappears at night but then can be heard weakly on the the N. Utah, Maui and some other western SDRs that have good antennas
(i.e. not magnetic loops).

Strong signal here to tonight for some reason. Usually I don't get a copy on the Slider, but tonight at 0420Z it's 589?

Hearing it here at home, just barely whooping above the noise.

Hey there! Is the beacon off the air?

Yes, evidently the beacon is no longer operational.

 It's a mystery as to what happened to it, and it'll be a mid June before I can take the hike to even check on it. Hopefully it can be repaired on-site, otherwise it'll have to be brought in for repairs. CS will be MIA for a few months.
