    I swapped everything over to 6m the other day, and was not getting anything when I checked from work. Went in tonight to disconnect before bad weather, and good 'ol reliable Windoze 8.1 shut down on its own despite me turning off the sleep feature.

    just warming up the rig here too.

    Ops ... my timing was way off. Seeing UR sig Dave, but I was way off!

    Corrected now.

    Signals lining up now, time wise. Forgot to start D4 earlier.

    Here's an image capture of the first sig to come in and decode on the previous frame.

    And another frame received and decoded!

    Lots of Doppler in both.

    Update:
    And the last 3 SNR report here:

    2048 -13 -0.3 144.490530 0 KD6RF EM22 37
    2054 -13 -0.2 144.490530 0 KD6RF EM22 37
    2058 -9 -0.3 144.490529 0 KD6RF EM22 37

    Another good signal, and strong, too.

    Some nice, mild tropospheric enhancement/ducting plus ACS Doppler.

    Reports so far:

    2048 -13 -0.3 144.490530 0 KD6RF EM22 37
    2054 -13 -0.2 144.490530 0 KD6RF EM22 37
    2058 -9 -0.3 144.490529 0 KD6RF EM22 37
    2104 -9 -0.3 144.490529 0 KD6RF EM22 37

    2118 -11 -0.1 144.490523 0 KD6RF EM22 37

    And one more screen capture too, with two very definite Doppler tracks just left and right of main signal.

    Signals this strong and the 'tone' gets to be easily heard with the human ear:

    2146 -7 -0.2 144.490522 0 KD6RF EM22 37

    (-7 dB SNR)

    VG reports last few franmes:

    2146 -7 -0.2 144.490522 0 KD6RF EM22 37
    2202 -8 -0.4 144.490517 -2 KD6RF EM22 37
    2212 -7 -0.3 144.490499 -3 KD6RF EM22 37
    2220 -7 -0.4 144.490506 -1 KD6RF EM22 37

    THIS is the time we need more activity on the band!

    Thanks Jim.

    Here is a nice capture - the one in the middle is interesting - look at the upward moving doppler around 1700 Hz - looks like it's a high shift version of your single tone. If it really is, whatever the target is is moving pretty darn quick...

    If I'm not mistaken, that's around 600 M/Sec relative motion for the full 2 minutes??? (Or is that 2X the relative motion....) If that's really your signal shifted up 300 Hz....

    Also, Dick, WB5B says he's on. With 2 watts, it might be a challenge!
