Hi Paul, VLF,|
Now, i've optimised the resonance a bit and can run 220 mA antenna
current now! The transductor circuit is still not existing in the
system so the antenna current may vary a bit. Can be watched at
220 mA is equivalent to -36.5 dB.
Let's try again the same message.
f = 6470.00000 Hz
Start time: 14.05.2016 21:40:02 UTC
Symbol length: 100 s
Duration: 15h, 33m, 20s
Antenna current: 220 mA
Not the easiest time in the year but that's the challenge.
As soon as i go to 5.17 kHz we start to dive down the QRN! ;-)

Hmm, that's a pity. Maybe it would be useful to run a beacon,
periodically the same message in shorter symbols, maybe 40s. A single
character would be already fine, like 'R'. This would take 3:33:20 to
be sent. I could do this each 4 hours.
Or i can send a simple carrier for a few days. However i want to build
a circuit which keeps the antenna current constant, even during rain,
so the ERP stays constant!

I haven't been able to decode this one. The average noise
was 3.7 dB higher than the previous successful message, so
there should still be a couple of dB to spare.
I've tried a wider range of phase search in case the
day/night phase change was more than expected.
So far it seems that 6.47 is more variable and unpredictable
than 8.27 which is opposite to what I'd expect.
