Hi Markus,

That's remarkable! I'm inspired.

Tnx 73 Joe VO1NA

Hi Joe,

on the spectrogram https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/26404526/opds8.png , 
your carrier trace was quite narrow so conditions were stable again last night. 
Weak sidelines at +- 4.16 Hz corresponding to the dot rate were also visible.

Unlike Roelof, I have no chance of actually hearing your CW message here. So I 
made an attempt to bring it out of the noise using coherent averaging. The 
saved data files from 23 to 6 UT were assembled into one large array. Then the 
phase evolution of the AM carrier was estimated and used for synchroneous 
demodulation (just like in opds). Thus the modulation appears in the in-phase 
baseband component, allowing coherent averaging of multiple message repeats.

From the sidelines I knew the dot duration, but I had to use trial and error to 
find the message length. In the end, a cycle of 208 dotlengths (25.00228 s) and 
1126 averages turned up an easily readable fast-CW decode, shown in the 
attached screenshot (black = in-phase, cyan = quadrature).

All the best,
Markus (DF6NM)

Thank-you again Roelof. Conditions are great so I'll try 10 WPM CW
tonight.

Hello Joe,

Excellent propagation once more!
Even better than yesterday night.
