Decoded at Bielefeld via DL4YHF (303.8km). Copied 'DK7FC' with
Eb/N0 +4.5 dB and constant reference phase.
S/N 19.1 dB in 29.8 uHz, -60.1 dB in 2.5kHz.
Just excellent! Thanks for working out the decode!
My call passed over 3 wavelengths on ULF, that's a dream! I am sure we
will manage even more.
Very interesting to see the high Eb/N0 relative to yesterday. From the
calculator it should have been weaker. And the QRN didn't look much
lower than yesterday, at least from here.
Some there's a relatively high uncertainty down there, and the risk of
getting no decode when coming to close to the limit. The stacking is an
I'm still working on the recordings from the weekend. Gained a further
3dB by using very strong hum filtering, a threshold only 1.5 times the
mean amplitude and narrow notches. Enough to suppress not just the
harmonics but also the sidebands of the harmonics. Still no trace
here in Todmorden - yet. Still some permutations of polarisation
and azimuth to try.

3 dB is very significant! Congrats to that. It will also help to get
better results from Renatos data. But as far as i remember he is
offering the stream with the blanker already applied.
We could ask him to disable it temporarily, if that helps. If he knows
what we're trying, he will do it i expect :-)
Still no trace of the signal here. But tweaking the blanker
isn't going to go from 'no trace' to 'significant detection'.
Oh yes, and also a lot to learn about the optimisation work for the
We are having fun with this! Constantly pushing at the limits.
