      Hello SAQ team

      Yesterday I received the SAQ 09.00UTC transmission in the west of the Netherlands. Locator JO22EA.
      The transmission was loud and clear. There was some interference, possibly caused by thunderstorms.
      Equipment used:
      – homebrew miniwhip active antenna, placed well away from my house
      – PC running Windows7 and the SAQ panoramic VLF receiver v0.94 created by Roland Froehlich
      This SAQ panoramic VLF receiver software is truly amazing!
      The antenna was tied directly to the microphone socket of the computer’s on board soundcard.

      Many thanks to the SAQ team for running this transmitter.

      Hi,

      tried to receive SAQ for the first time and success. The Transmission in the morning were better than the second one here in Austria near Vienna.
      Used a active antenna and PC with Sound Card.

      Will try at Chrismas this year.

      Thanks for the nice Transmission !!!!!

      SAQ not received in Cape Town.
      I am sure if the transmission took place in the evening or early morning before sunrise, SAQ would have been heard.

      Hello,
      We received the Signal of the first transmission today very weak and nothing from the second transmission.We had also strong QRN.
      In December 2014 the Reception was much better than today.
      Hope to hear you again at Christmas.

      The second pass from SAQ was also received in Boden (KP05vs) in Sweden. The antenna was a dipole (G5RV) connected to an ELAD SDR FDM-DUO transceiver. Distance to SAQ is 1,083 km. Mni tnx to to the SAQ crew!

      Copied the 12:00 UTC transmission; reception was very clear, 488!
      Location: Near Munich
      Locator: JN58TB

      I was glad that my simple antenna worked very fine; just 5 turns of 26-wire flat ribbon cable (giving 130 wire turns) wound on a quadratic wooden cross (side length 80 cm) made of 2 old broomsticks.
      Just connected the ends of the inductive loop antenna to the MIC input of my USB audio adapter, started the easy-to-use SAQ panoramic VLF receiver V094 and soon after I could hear the transmission.

      Thank you, SAQ team, well done, great work!

      This time I finally succeeded receiving SAQ with a crystal radio! Antennea was MiniWhip und BFO an old HP200D signal generator. SAQ was not very loud, but very clear (rst529) in the old magnetic headphone. It’s a great feeling that way…….

      Hi !
      Nice reception in Grenoble ( France ) , +20dB above the noise level.
      I use this antenna : http://david.alloza.eu/electronique/VLF/VLF_Active_aerial/VLF_Active.html

      Here is the sample : http://david.alloza.eu/electronique/VLF/VLF_Active_aerial/SAQ_2016_07_03.wav

      Hejhej from Karlsruhe/Germany JN49ea at 0840 (VVV DE SAQ) and 0900 (Transmission)

      I received your transmission with three stations:
      1. Flex 6500 and longwire RST 458
      2. SDR-IQ and Grahn GS5SE with a power ferrite module RST 579
      3. Siemens D2008 Level Meter and 100 kHz output into a WinRadio G305 with a homebuilt frame antenna RST 599

      I received a very good signal and was quite surprised that my homebuilt frame antenna and the Siemens D2008,
      which is a measurement instrument and can be used as a receiver for VLF (200Hz!!!) to HF.
      I’m very intersted in the second transmission today, which I will receive with new antenna and RX constellations.

      I’m interested in trying to build a crystal radio able to tune in on the low frequency, and would very much like to try to home in on the signals. I imagine the duration of the first transmission would be used up to locate the signal, and with some luck I’d be able to actually listen to the second one. But then I need to know when it’s supposed to be. Is that information available or do I need to wait for the detailed schedule? (I’m planning a trip that might be on July 3:rd, nothing decided yet, and would like to know before I need to make definite arrangements.)

      On July 2 an 3, 2016 there will be a field day at the Astropeiler Stockert, Germany.
      On Saturday they plan to demonstrate how to build a morse decoder with Arduino + display.
      My idea is to use this decoder for receiving SAQ on Sunday.

      It would be e real great event to have a combined acoustical and Arduino decoding
      plus ”public viewing” via a WEBCAM.
      Can it be done ??? Think it over !
