Finally heard the AA4XX beacon at 1700 Z on 01-01-96. Paul had the
beacon running at 20 mW.

Interestingly enough, I heard it FIRST on my new Wilderness Sierra!
Sitting along side the Sierra was the Argo 515. It was almost 15
minutes after I first heard the beacon on the Sierra that prop improved
enough to let me hear it on the 515!

Initial signal report on the beacon (using the Sierra) was RST 219.
During the next half hour conditions improved to where the beacon was a
solid 329, not bad considering my very noisy location.

Looks like the Sierra definately hears better than the 515, on 40 mtrs
anyway.
