Hem SAQ Forum SAQ Transmissions SAQ Transmission on May 1st 2018 Svar till: SAQ Transmission on May 1st 2018


my first attempt to receive the SAQ today. Signal was good but I expected it stronger.

Antenna : shortwave beam 30/40m which works surprisingly good at VLF
RX: homebrew converter + FT1000MP

additional :
German telegraph from 1880 (Gerb. Naglo, Berlin) to write the Morse code to paper strip

Had a lot of noise here around 17 kHz, therefore the decoder was only able to deliver
some fragments of the text but I could hear and write it down manually without big problems.
Your signal was lower than MSF60 from UK, which is > 1000 km from here, much more than
the distance to Grimeton.
Thanks for your effort and the successful transmission today !
