Always a joy to hear the old lady starting up! First signals heard at 0843 UTC (long dash), then VVV de SAQ from 0845 until 0859 and then the msg with the kind recognition of all health workers everywhere…

Your signals were about 15 dB above the background in 500 Hz BW throughout in JP81nx. Some of the background was your own backwave, which was quite weak today but plainly audible. There was another strong VLF station on the frequency initially, but thankfully it stopped a few minutes before you started tuning up.

Equipment: 1 m long vertical E-field probe antenna => homemade upconverter 17.2 / 3467.2 => Drake R-4C

73, thanks and keep safe!
