Dear Grimeton SAQ Team,
you made our day at the amateur radio club station DF0SAX near Dresden ! 3 successful transmissions – amazing.
Several people brought their equipment and we received your signal with 5 different antenna types and several
receivers. More details may follow. Just for now:
signal was always well above noise (after we switched off all noise sources around us) and we could receive
your signal with all used antennas:
– resonant loop
– non-resonant loop
– 26m vertical antenna
– ferrite rod antenne
– Mini-whip (electrical field antenna)
with different receivers.
One of the highlights was writing down the Morse code with 2 telegraphs which are much older than the transmitter in Grimeton !
1) German telegraph Gebr. Naglo
2) German telegraph W. Gurlt telegraph
both from around 1880 !
We were able to get the Morse code with ink on the paper clear and readable – no problems ! I will send you the paper strip with the 1st message by mail.
The only issue came up at the end of the 1st message when your TX was drifting and the signal was going down.
I think you noticed this also on your side.
