Hi Gary,

Thank-you for the report, caputure and for running your FB grabber.
I look for sigs on your grabber quite frequently to check the TX.

The TX will be on again tonight, (without chirps I hope).  Comments
about the phase (especially unfavourable criticism) are solicited and
shall be most welcomed.

450 watts, 3.2 amps to a 100m wire at 15m. QRSS30.

Hi Joe,

Michel's excellent capture of your signal prompted me to check my over-night grabber saves & found your signal showing up for a long period of time from 00:50utc to about 03.30utc on my QRS03 grabber, see attached at 01:40utc. A letter "V" seen at the top of image.

Thank-you, Michel.

Good conditions and no mention of a chip, nor could I see one
on your spectrum.  Yesterday I changed the TX and hopefully
fixed the chirp and maybe the phase glitches?

There are still bumps (~0.1 Hz) in the spectrum 10 MHz DOCXO output
every few minutes.  They last longer when the osc is less thermally
insulated from the shack, but this is unchanged by putting
a big cap across Vcc (which is unchanging). Could this be the source of the phase instability in the 137 kHz sigs? How about a large AC ripple on the supply to the PA?
73 & tnx
