Thanks to all for the nice words!|
NOW: It comes through again:
Even earlier than yesterday. Looks promising for the next hour

Wow! I'm red-hot with envy ;-)
Attached is another grabber screenshot
comparison. The width from DK7FC was halved, and the timescale of
VK1SV shifted by 28 minutes. In addition to the perfect "7", we also
find earlier weak dashes on the low DFCW frequency, between 18:05 and
18:20. This matches what seems to be have been a transmit keying
error, with the callsign ending early in an "F" rather than a "C".
Congratulations to both Stefan and Dimitris on this fantastic

Betreff: LF: DK7FC in VK?
Not yet a clear proof but probably i left a first trace in VK on 136.172
kHz in my evening transmission a few hours ago.
The VK1SV grabber ( http://people.physics.anu.edu.au/~dxt103/grabber/)
showed this spectrogram at about 20:10 UTC:
It looks pretty equal to a 7 i find.
Note the time delay of the time stamp in the spectrogram and in the text
box in the left top corner. The correct time is that of the text box.
(We don't know where this delay may come from). The delay is exactly 30
So that 7 must have been on air at about 19:15 UTC. This exactly matches
with my own grabber capture which can be seen at
Also the frequency matches as well as the DFCW element length and the
DFCW shift of my DFCW-180 transmission. As a comparison i generated a 7
in a spectrogram with equal setting as used by Dimitris/VK1SV. Then i
cut that 7 and inserted it into the VK grabber capture, see:
Of course we will go on trying in the next time and hope to get a even
better proof. In that mode there is little room, i.e. time to receive a
complete call. The time is very limited. But maybe we will see a F
I'm very optimistic you know.
That is a path of 16464 km :-)
PS: Will be quiet tonite due to VLF receive tests.
