      Yesterday I received for the first time the SAQ transmission.
      The SAQ signal, here in Romania, Pitesti, KN24KU, was much better than expected for my all home made equipment : 599+ some statics, for the first transmission and 489+QRN for the second transmission.
      My rig : VLF converter (based on the DL4ZAO VLF conv.), 14 MHz cw/ssb Rx, G5RV antenna (a kind of !).
      Many thanks to the entire crew for these transmissions and for all their work,
      73, Gigi, YO7GYQ.

      Hello from a smoky and hot Alaska – was awake for the first transmission only and signals around 339 signal 10-12 dB above noise. I had to employ my single turn 3m diameter loop/Spectrumlabs to cut high QRN, and much better, and rarely, than the L400b probe which I typically use for SAQ. Thanks for the Signals and congrats on getting the signal over the Pole in the middle of summer – 73 Laurence KL7L

      Signals excellent about 20 dB over man made noise (abt 5 dB less than JXN on 16.4 kHz) in a city location.
      The second transmission slightly noisier anbd abt 2 dB weaker, but solid copy.

      Good signals into the UK.

      15dB above the noise floor into Farnham WEB SDR http://farnham-sdr.com/ in SE UK

      12dB above the noise floor into Kernow KiWI WEB SDR http://kernow.hopto.org:8073/ at Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall SW tip of UK (despite a very high noise floor)

      Unfortunately too much switched mode power supply noise on my SWUK KiWi SDR http://southwest.ddns.net:8073/ which masked the SAQ signal.
