I am happy to report on my successful reception of this year`s SAQ transmission on United Nations Day 2018 here in Barsinghausen nr. Hannover by using the Grimeton kit direct conversion receiver and the small original magnetic loop only.
Signal strength was not very strong and behind a constant noise curtain, but the signs were clear and well to copy.
Next time I will try reception outdoors and away from domestic sources of interference.
If i could i would send a photo of my faboulos but simple SAQ receiving station.

Reception was not so good here at Karlsruhe (Loc. JN49ea) because of QRN on my magnetic antenna
Grahn GS-5SE with my RFspace SDR-IQ. OTOH I got a signal on the electric antenna (G5RV) with my
SDRplay RSP1a. Signal was about 435. But that was due to the place, as there is big machinery
in the basement (a water turbine and electrical generator) and lots of QRN.
Hope you had a beautiful day up there at Grimeton!
