Joe,
 
great! We'll see whether we'll see something ;-)
 
The visual eclipse started here a few minutes ago. Perfect sunny weather, now off to the garden with the scope and the attenuator foil.
 
Thanks a lot,
Markus

Hi Markus,

The carrier was switched on at 0830.  A weak trace appeared on your
grabber overnight.

73

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.
