GM Eddie, Jacek,

Thanks for the decode, i confirm the message is correct ;-) With such long messages, a false decode that makes some sense becomes most unlikely. I would never send messages like 'h;?T 7!F' :-)

Jacek, the QRN looked quite low here last night. Anyway i would say there is a clear SNR improvement on your side. We could certainly manage longer messages but then we may exclude some newcomers.
Actually i am now in the situation to run daily VLF transmissions, even during rain. The antenna current was almost stable at 700 mA during the whole transmission time.
I'm now waiting for a feedback from Alex/RN3AUS, and i am optimistic. You already see, the messages become longer and longer. The next attempt would be 10 characters which still seems to be realistic for a radius of 2000 km.
BTW EA5DOM is also within this radius! :-)

73, Stefan
