That's remarkable! I'm inspired.

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,

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

Excellent propagation once more!
Even better than yesterday night.
