yes I did. The signal was slowly moving across the entire band from below
the beacon to the upper edge. On my panoramic receiver it was stronger than
the beacon. It covered abt. 20 kHz bandwidth, but it was not a discrete
signal. Just my S-meter was indicating. When I was trying to transmit on
tat frequency, my signal became distorted and modulated with a certain
warble. Checking the telemetry I noticed L1 AGC going up to 11.48 dB and
with the next block was down again on 0.48.
