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.
