      This time the signal was relatively weak and with SNR around 10dB. Howewer after additional amplification and filtering of the recorded signal I was able to decode all transmission. Reception site was Milanówek, 25km SW from Warsaw, Poland. Receiver was standalone with conversion from 17.2 to 0.8 kHz and ferrite rod antenna.

      Outdoor recording in Sollentuna, Sweden, JO89xk. Very damp weather and less-than-ideal antenna. Capture of the SAQ signal made directly with Audacity on laptop and exported as 44100 samples/s 16-bit mono WAV file.

      Offline analysis of the WAV file indicates that SAQ was sending at 17206 Hz?

      Using the very versatile HDSDR program (www.hdsdr.de) in CW mode I was able to write down the message of the day, after really many listenings due to poor S/N ratio. A lot of fun; thanks to all who made this possible!

      I have a doubt about the start of the transmission. I didn’t hear anything at 1500 utc.

      “17:00 (15:00 UTC): Transmission of a message from SAQ”

      I will listen again at 1700 UTC
