A copy of my report sent by email, to share the passion with the other SWL…
I’m reporting from Italy to submite a reception report for the Christmas Eve SAQ Alexanderson alternator station.
I read the fascinating story of the transmitter on the SWLing blog.
As my current equipment doesn’t permit to reach the 17.2 Khz frequency, I used the Twente WebSdr receiver with the help of a Morse decoder for the message
Listening time: from 7:30 UTC to 8:45 UTC
At 7:45 UTC the transmitter tuned in with the periodical message VVV VVV DE SAQ
At 8:00 UTC I was able to hear the full message (here I report what I received, with missing parts and my interpolation on the missing characters of received words):
DE S E THIS IS GRIMETON RADIO /SAQ IN (…) TRANSMISSION (…) ALTERNATOR JN A7.2 Z=WE WISH YOU ALL A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND AN HAPPY NEW YEAR = SIGNED : (…) WORLD HERITAGE AT GRIMETON AND THE ALEXANDER-GRIMETON VETERAN RADIOS (…) ASSOCIATION (…) PLEASE (…) OUR WEBSITE : http://WWW.ALEXANDER.N.SE (…) http://WWW.ALEXANDER.N.SE E=LE SAQ SAQ SAQ
Thank you to share this tranmission using this valuable piece of technology and radio history. Bravi!
My best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. I will check you nice and informative website for tne next transmissions.
