      I don’t have LF equipment or antenna, but I wanted to take part in transmission at 8:45 1st July 2018.

      I used the SDR radio at University of Twente http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/ [Maidenhead JO32KF]

      Received QSA with RST 559

      Thank you for keeping this significant part of radio heritage alive and well!

      Thank you University of Twente for providing this excellent facility!

        Good signal here in JO22OA. SNR up to 20dB above noise level. Some QSB
        It was my first attempt to receive SAQ with my homemade converter.
        Could copy all CW very easily.
        Looking forward to next transmission.

        This is my QSL for today’s transmission, 1 May 2018.

        Location: Comano, Switzerand.

        Distance from Grimeton: 1256 Km

        Receiver: one tube Colin B. Kennedy Mod. 110, produced from 1921 to 1925, covering all frequencies between 12,5 Khz to 2 Mhz. Power Supply: batteries

        Audio amplifier: Colin B. Kennedy Mod. 525. Power Supply: batteries

        Loudspeaker: Isophon Epsilon, high impedance, ca. 1930.

        Antenna: Chirio Mini Whip

        Much QRM because of low selectivity, but understandable.
        Perhaps this is the first QSL you receive, having used a receiver older than the transmitter?

        Best regards

        Nice signal from SAQ 17,2 KHz 20DB above noise but the most important for todays event was that I had the opportunity to watch live the station as well as to receive the VLF transmission the same time… QTH KM39gc Lesbos Isl.

        QSL SAQ

        Signal was very strong and clear in Jn48.
        I used a QRP-Labs QCX with converter feeded by a tuned active ferrite rod antenna.
        I was impressed, that this rig beated my rig with E1800 in former receptions.

        SAQ aujourd’hui (1er mai 2018). Le signal était d’environ. 20 dB au-dessus du bruit (avec une bande passante de 50 Hz, nécessité par le système électronique local qrm) ici pres de Lyon Message copié 100%. Incroyable est la clarté et la stabilité du signal en JN25IQ

        DL9BDM, Eilert

        Received here in the northwestern part of germany (JO33VF) with an SSB LAN-SDR, signal strenght was about -115 dBm (S 3 – 4). Message was complete readable (R4) with good tone. Antenna only a 3 meter vertical for shortwave, not tuned to VLF. I used this configuration with a homemade converter with SO42P IC, wich converts the signal to the 10 MHz range.

      17. #6249 Svara

        Many Thanks.
        Expectantly, I drove to a forest edge and set up my receiver.
        I happily heard the signs. It was again a highlight to experience the history of the radio and the result of your great work. Greetings from Jena, Germany

        It was very exciting to listen to SAQ today (may 1st 2018). Signal was approx. 15 dB above noise (with 50 Hz bandwith, necessitated by local electronic qrm ) here near Karlsruhe. Copied message 100%. Amazing is the clarity and stability of the transmitted signal, and this with a technology dating from 1925! Congratulations and thanks to all members of SAQ who are keeping this remarkable station operational. Well done! Well worth it!
