Hi Paul, VLF,

Many thanks for the decode and analysis of Renatos data!
Well, 517 is correct of course. But HNY would have been the better choice for a message. But i just woke up 4 minutes before 9 UTC and had to make quick decisions :-)
You already proved that Renato receives my signal (not a 1PPS harmonic
crosstalk from the other soundcard channel). The frequency shift of -250
uHz is now also visible on his grabber:
Now it is snowing and the antenna current falls below 150 mA,
When the WX is better again i will further improve the coil and i think
i can manage a stable 230 +- 10 mA then.
With this signal it should be possible to transfer 5 characters (e.g. my
call) to you in a single day when using 16K25A.
73, Stefan

Easy decode from the recording of vlf15 (this is after a stage
of vorbis compression and decompression).

'58' with constant reference phase.

Carrier Eb/N0: 4.2
Carrier S/N: 14.75 dB in 45.3 uHz,  -62.7 dB in 2.5kHz.

Interesting.  At 6140 and 8270 your signals at Cumiana vlf15
are usually a few dB weaker than at Todmorden (Cumiana land path
and E-field only).  Not so on this occasion.

Signal calculator predicts 1.6 dB.

Copied '517', constant reference phase.

Carrier Eb/N0: 2.0 dB
Carrier S/N: 14.31 dB in 53.9 uHz,  -62.3 dB in 2.5kHz.

Expect Cumiana also got it, will check that next.
