Put a note out to OO group for some help.  Will wait a while to see if anything comes of it.

Hi Harry,
 
Yes, that does correspond nicely.   Your 210 deg heading and my 120 deg heading seem to indicate something around Monterrey, Mexico, or up around San Antonio, TX.   
 
There’s a huge margin of error in this, but fun to guesstimate … ;>)

I have a hex beam, not quite the performance of your antenna but I get a definite peak at about 210° also at an S5 to S6 which, correlating with your observations, would seem to put the signal in northern Mexico.  This from grid square EN35hb in Minnesota.

Hi Gang,
 
I’ve taken a few casual readings on this signal from different headings here in CM97bf on my Elecraft P3 Panadapter.  
 
From what I’m seeing, the signal is strongest at approximately 120 degrees azimuth from my QTH.   I get the strongest signal – S5-6 – in that direction.   My 3L SteppIR has decent F/B performance, and I am getting a distinct null at 300 degs, pointed 180 degs away, and at 30 degs when the elements are perpendicular to 120 degs.  
 
I’m also seeing QSB on the signal and it sometimes drops to S3-4, but soon returns to an S5-6 level.  From this I conclude the signal is not local from here in the SF Bay Area.
 
My 120 deg line roughly follows the central valley, southwestern AZ, Northern Mexico, Central America and on to Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, Bolivia, etc.
 
Anyone else have a fix on this signal?
 
Many years ago, I was in a QSO with a fellow in NY State on Friday afternoon.    After he signed, I noticed his signal was still on – no modulation.   It was on all weekend.   I send him an email, and by Monday it was gone.   He explained he had left for the weekend and hadn’t noticed that his software was holding his rig in TX.  He was only running 5W, so his rig apparently showed no ill effects.

Is there a Club endorsement for "non-ragchew".  Maybe they are shooting for something like that.

I'm still seeing PSK idle tracks on 14.0722. Clean but no modulation. Coming in very strong today. If it were a QSO it would get a well deserved 599. IMD -29db. 21:23 UTC.

It has been like this for a few weeks now. ???????
