Thanks for the peak :-)
When talking about ERP, how strong is Markus' and Uwes signal? Just to
get an impression. I don't know their ERPs.
It was raining in the morning. I had to bring the coil down to the
office again. In the coming days i want to build a waterproof
construction, something like a small tent :-)
But the forced air flow by the fan is causing a swinging of the 2 small
ferrite rods in the center of the coil. I can see it in the antenna
current! So the phase is probably not very stable. I will search for a
better solution and already know one, to be tested...
Also i want to test the PLL with the small pickup probe tracking the
local fields from the radiated signal.
Then i can run a 'key-down' carrier for one week or longer :-)

This time, a good signal at about 0.35 fT
but the noise was high from the same direction so
cannot be avoided by steering the loops away.
I don't know if this is 150uW, from the signal
strength I might guess 50uW max, probably more
I ran all 6300 seconds of the carrier through EbNaut to
decode an 'all-star' message at two settings:
Code Symbols Chars Eb/N0
8K19A 15.0 sec 3 +0.5 dB
16K25A 7.7 sec 3 0.0 dB
I couldn't get a 4 char message to decode. If the
noise wasn't so high this signal would do very well.
How about a daytime test?
