On many days, only one or two DTUSat-2 beacons at my QTH.

Today, 06-11-2019, first beacon did not transmit until 62 degrees
elevation just before TCA followed by 6 more full or partial beacons.
Yesterday, 05-11-2019, low pass with multiple beacons.

Attachment 1, 05-11-2019 at 5 degrees just before AOS.
              My antennas are only 2.4 meters above ground so signal
              was being received through buildings and trees. 
Attachment 2, 06-11-2019 at 71 degrees. Very strong signal.
Attachment 3, 06-11-2019 at 72 degrees. Very strong signal.
Attachment 4, 06-11-2019 at 52 degrees. Waterfall shows data
              burst after end of CW beacon.

Signal strength seems to be normally good. Beacons are very intermittent.
DTUSat-2 is a great signal to track on 2.4 GHz.
