Bob, W1ICW:
Commands acknowledged at or near TCA. CW beacon sounds weak this morning somehow. CO-65 ( Cute 1.7+ APDII ) sounds about right, so I don’t think it was my setup.
I also noticed a weak and unmodulated carrier before the beacon started. It was satellite based as it had doppler shift on it. Following data copied from beacon:
