Last night I pushed the antenna out again and ran
MF opds-8 and WSPR. Traces from VO1NA were weakly visible in the
spectrogram between about midnight and 2 UT, resulting in a single opds
detection at 0:36 with an unambiguous 16.6 dB correlation peak. This is
quite gratifying, considering the time of the year and the rather
mediocre noise situation in my suburban location.
Also got nice opds detections from G6AVK, DF1VB and
a very strong PA3ABK, as well as a number of WSPR decodes from DH5RAE, G3WCB,
HB9CAU and F6GEX. There also seemed to be an unidentified repeating
trace on 478.504kHz, which looked like it might have been an Opera beacon.
But if it was I missed it, perhaps because the unknown callsign was
not contained in my search list.
PS: I just noticed that Dropbox syncs failed
last night - results and screenshot have now been updated
All the best,
