I´m rather impressed by your success on receiving.
Seems I am far behind you. However, it might depend on the noiselevel. Here,
next to Mainflingen, the noise is -90 dBm with BW=100 Hz in the noisegaps.
Antenna is umbrella 23m high with 325 pF on the top. How abt the
noise on your side?
It seems to me that I had better results
with a marconi only 12m high and only 120pF on top. With this antenna,
for example, I did copy G2LDO audiable. Not so with a loop of 1.8m
diameter, grounded or ungrounded.

Last nite OK1DWF and YU7AR seen CQ on QRS mode.
Both stns good audible sigs with me. They did not appear to work each other at
my observation times. Had they been on CW norm mode I would have called but I
only use QRS as a last resort. All stns active so far around EU on QRS
plus VE,VO and RU6LA, RN6BN and UA9OC are audible with me
at Q5, in fact UA9OC was good copy with me earlier on in the year on norm CW
when others were struggling on QRS.
The problem with most seems to be RECEIVING,
high power TRANSMITTING is one thing but does not help on
Good RX antennas seem rare.
Often several stations are active at the same
time especially on QRS calling CQ but seldom reply to one another, or maybe
they do not want to work each other!!
