Fairly noisy here in Upstate NY. I clearly heard V’s before 0800 and heard the message, but not strong enough to get but a few characters. I also clearly heard when the transmission stopped at 0806. I have recorded it with FLDIGI so may be able to decode some. This was my best reception yet.
My reception equipment is Harris RF-590A, homebrew W1VD preamp, 14 turn, 2 meter loop, I used ARGO and FLDIGI to watch and record with a signalink USB as an interface. Future enhancement needs to be a rotator and tuning for the loop to knock down the local noise. My Wellbrook loop and Cliftonlabs whip were not effective this time.
