90 dBm/75. My grid is EM13tb.  Receiver is a Cushman CE-24

Here's how Dex sounds at EM13tb using just an Icom 735and a little 6-inch tuned ferrite loopstick antenna on my desktop. 

And his signal is nearly twice as loud now as it was when I recorded this. Note:  I've used my sound processing software

to speed-up the tempo of the CW in order to reduce file size and also to show that Dex is QSO quality tonight.

quite good as I was using no filtering such as a narrow CW filter or even an audio filter. The rig is a FRG-100, 3 foot square homebrew loop inside my apartment...(btw, the loop wasn't even resonant at the time

I am hearing your beacon again at 7:20 p.m. your local time.  signals were subject to deep QSB w/sigs ranging from

RST 589 down to inaudible. Half of the time I could copy the audio with the 'phones sitting on the bench

was a 1200' sloper going NE up adjacent mountain.  QRN level was set arbitrarily at S3 and your sig played tag with it,

some cycles of the message inaudible, others peaking QRK 4 for brief periods. "North Carolina" was often armchair

You're the first 600M station I've heard, after trying off and on for a few months.  I mainly do MW and LW DXing now due to space restrictions for an antenna.  I have a lot of local noise on the lower broadcast band and LW, but your signal made it through well, usually a 569 but fading at time to about a 339.  Drake R8B, Quantum Phaser, Kiwa Loop, Quantum QX Pro Loop, copper pipe loop, and CB whip.

100 Dave Thomas W4DIM Madison, AL 07Jan07 0616 Received beacon WD2XSH/10 on 506.840 KHZ lower CW MODE using Ten-Tec Orion and 600 ft beverage antenna on the ground pointed due north.  Signal strength was about 5-2-9 at 0616Z Sunday Jan 7, 2007

You're being received quite well in east central New Jersey using a 20-turn 57" x 63" indoor air-core resonant loop antenna and a
quadrature phasing receiver of my own design. (click to hear 143kb mp3 of John's copy)
