MSCommNet in here as well. Bill, out of curiosity what are you using for a beam? I don't recall (or missed) you mentioning it before.

Mounted inside the home office, on a Camera Tripod, Had it for a few years now, used for some of my Event Ops [Amateur at Mt Washington]
but finally put it into use with the 898T's I bought from you, that also turned out to be Tapped, so using DSD+, 898T and the Beam

Cool, thanks for the info.

This opening is likely to go away with the rain, but that said just heard Bay of Fundy Radio on Marine CH12 (156.600).

156.2250 D223 UNID

156.0225 D223 is Regional School District 16 (Poland, Minot, Mechanic Falls) in Maine. Seems too similar to be a coincidence.
