Dear LF Group,
Thanks to all for the T/A reports. The interesting thing is that, allthough
from the DCF39 plots last night was quite good by recent standards, the
signal strength was not a long way above the threshold required for copy of
QRSS60, and the signals fade in and out. For example, in W1TAG's "20 Jan-4"
image, the M of my callsign is visible, most of the 0 has dissapeared, and
the BMU is again visible. Since this same path has previously supported
signals with shorter element lengths (eg, Jason during December with it's
12 sec "dots"), it is clear that signal levels can improve substantially
over last night - perhaps by 10dB or more. I would like to see what the
DCF39 plot looks like then!
Cheers, Jim Moritz
