Thank-you for the kind words, Markus. The RX will be ready again
tonight watching on 136.1705 to 136.1736 kHz for you and the gang
with the 'barefoot' FT-817, tuned 100m wire and Argo.
73 & GL

that's a beautiful Argo screenshot! Glad to see both Andy and Alex in there,
along with Stefan and myself.
Jay had also posted a good spectrogram on the W1VD grabber site, but the
background noise / QRN was apparently significantly worse than the night before.
Looks like the weather is still antenna-friendly, so I might as well get on
again tonight (if only for continuity ;-)
PS: Stefan, skies = heavens above ;-)

Despite the high K and A indices, UW8SM, DK7FC, DF6NM and R7NT were copied
here last night. This is most gratifying -- it reminds me of the 'good
old days' when the band is active like this.
For RX, the 100m wire (usual TX aerial) was used. It has 2 mH of series
inductance. The RX was the FT-817 without the external (35dB) preamp.
IPO was engaged (to remove the internal preamp) and the AGG was off.
73 to all
