      Hello friends
      I have received the broadcast from 1 may 2018 on the Baltic Sea. On a sailing ship. The distance was not large with about 280KM. Coordinates: 55 ° 8’57.61 ”N 9 ° 43’14.58” E. The receiver is a homemade. The box is a smal box. Antenna is a ferriteantenna, mixer is a direct mixer (with quartz). Power supply of a LiPo cell. I was very happy that my receiver worked well. The shema is simple. I expect the next broadcast near Berlin. Greetings and good luck

      Hello,
      my first attempt to receive the SAQ today. Signal was good but I expected it stronger.

      Antenna : shortwave beam 30/40m which works surprisingly good at VLF
      RX: homebrew converter + FT1000MP

      additional :
      CW-Decoder
      German telegraph from 1880 (Gerb. Naglo, Berlin) to write the Morse code to paper strip

      Had a lot of noise here around 17 kHz, therefore the decoder was only able to deliver
      some fragments of the text but I could hear and write it down manually without big problems.
      Your signal was lower than MSF60 from UK, which is > 1000 km from here, much more than
      the distance to Grimeton.
      Thanks for your effort and the successful transmission today !

      BR,
      Mark

      SAQ was -55 to -60 dB with noise floor at -80 dB.
      Sorry for mistake. My bad.

      QTH Vingåker JO79XB.
      Using the SAQrx program by SM6LKM and ten meter wire to mic input, sigs from SAQ was -25 to -30 dB with niose floor at -80 dB.
      Had strong QRM from what sounded as RTTY very close to 17.2 most of the time. Test transmissions before acctual message was very well readable when in the clear, but the message was hidden by the RTTY.

      Hi good morning
      Carlos Mourato CT4RK from Portugal.
      Today (1/05/2018) transmission from SAQ Grimton on 17.2KHz was received in Sines – Portugal with 30dBuV signal streng. The RST was 559. No bad for a very active D layer at the moment.. My reception condictions was a receiver Rohde & Schwarz EK070 and an active antenna also R&S HE11. I had some QRM but signals from SAQ received without problem

      73 from CT4RK
