Pleased to report good clear reception here in Cambridgeshire UK, signal received on a quite short (12m) random wire into home-made NE602-based up-converter and Yaesu FRG-100 receiver fitted with Collins 500Hz mechanical CW filter. I switched on around 0725 GMT, having turned off as many other devices as possible in the house to keep PSU mush down, running receiver and converter from batteries and heard the initial VVV DE SAQ etc. tuning up around 0740 and the message at 0800. In fact, the signal was good enough that I could go round switching things back on at home, often LF broadcast reception gets badly hit otherwise! Very satisfying to hear this wonderful piece of antique technology still working, keep up the good work and best wishes for the future.
