Hi Roger I listened from about 0800BST to about 0930BST on 72kHz nominal,
using FFTDSP4 and Spectrogram, but sorry to say nothing heard. I did listen
at the weekend but the local noise level was a lot worse than today.
Interestingly the local noise level seemed to decrease a little at about
0900BST. I suppose this coincides with the end of the Breakfast News
programs on TV.
I was using a 26t 1.2m diam passive loop tuned with about 500pF (I think),
tapped at 2t with coax feed (abt 5m RG58) to an AOR 7030 rx fitted with (and
using) a Collins 500 Hz filter. The loop was positioned in a roughly N-S
plane from my location which is 5 miles East of Ipswich (JO02pb). I tried a
variety of integration times on Spectrogram right out to about 5 secs, but
no signs of a trace from you.
I must admit I have still to hear an amateur signal on 73kHz.
