Hello there and a Merry Christmas to the whole SAQ team!
Thank you very much for today’s transmission. I had excellent copy throughout here in central Sweden (locator JP81nx) – but I could tell that the old lady was a wee bit indisposed today; the TX frequency shifted by some 10-20 Hz from time to time about halfway into the message.
Your signal was so strong throughout the whole transmission that the backwave was clearly audible, about -15 dB or so below the key-down level. At the very end, after you had signed off, the backwave was still there for some 20 – 30 seconds, but then it suddenly went WHOOP downwards in frequency and died out. So now I know how the signal sounds when you turn off the alternator- sort of a Christmas bonus! Wonder how many others could copy the backwave…
