Confirming Paul's observation. The strong unmodulated carrier was well visible in the grabber spectrograms. Got an error-free ******* decode of the 0:00 transmission:

For both messages I got an 'all-star' decode

found rank 0: ******* ps [ 8 -60 -60 -60 -60]
re-encode 167/608 ber 2.75e-01 Es/N0=-7.4 Eb/N0=4.2

re-encode 1/608 ber 1.64e-03 Es/N0=6.4 Eb/N0=18.0

which means you were sending pure carrier. (The CRC16 isn't
initialised to 0xffff as is usually done, instead zero so that
a payload of all zeros encodes to all zeros and transmits/receives
as a pure carrier).

The signal at 23:20 was very strong, only one of the 608 symbols
was demodulated incorrectly.

Also unmodulated carrier

found rank 0: ******* ps [ 1 180 180 180 180]
re-encode 1/608 ber 1.64e-03 Es/N0=6.4 Eb/N0=18.0 effrate=1/14.48

with again (suspiciously) just one symbol error.
Checked: the 23:20 symbol error was at offset 283, the 00:00
was at 512.

Something wrong with the modulator but the signal is huge. By the
time it arrives here you've enough spare dB to cross another
ocean. Once you've got things fettled we should try daylight
path which would a better test of the mode.
