I an receiving very low audio and little bit of static compared to the February sends. Seems the signal is a out 40% what it was.

The pass over my area (Prescott, AZ, DM34sm) around 2345-0000Z was a weak signal, too – could (barely) hear them, but could also detect that there was a signal there.

BIG signal here in the UK, Using IC706MkIIG with 137 MHz turnstile signal was 60dB over S9 but audio very weak did get a couple of pictures but really poor quality compared to past events. Such is life, propagation on HF is not much better Hi!
