Yes grabber is working ok but not a trace here yet, propagation must indeed be down. DF2JP shows a relatively weak and spread out signal on 137777.
Northerly Loran traces on 100 kHz have been weaker than normal and exhibit more irregular skywave variations.
Best 73,

GM Markus,

With your encouragement, let's try try a carrier starting 0845 while
monitoring the tuning.

I've seen no traces on any grabbers on your side of the pond so far,
but we can hope.

Of course it would be ideal to have that straight carrier - considering your usual signal strength you would probably still be easily observable if you reduced your power by a factor of two pr three.
