That sounds very good. Who is your next distant RX station?
It could be worth to run a carrier for a day or so. Maybe Paul will find
something. With 20 uW across the pond it should work.
Do you already have the necessary signal stability?
I can hear my own signal in 3.5 km distance so far. I will prepare a
recording and send a message in CW. But today it's raining suite strong
News from here, yesterday i ordered a 0.5 m diameter PVC tube!!
:-) It is just to protect the VLF coil from rain. I will paint it in
light grey, so it looks inconspicuous on the roof ;-) Also an air
ventilation system must be added in summer i guess. Maybe, if the wx is
dry again in the evening i will run another EbNaut message because Alex
told he will be in the garden on friday :-)
I'm looking forward to your signal on VLF. Hopefully i can decode you
here some time.

A quick report of very modest progress on this side of the pond --
the new coil is behaving itself quite well and is not arcing.
A low power test this afternoon yielded audible CW at 0.9km (!)
on 8277 Hz with a home brewed direct conversion rx and miniwhip.
It was a beautiful sunny day for a walk and strange looks from
motorists as roadside field experiments progressed.
The amazing Eu VLF results are inspiring and I hope to set a new
dx record (>lambda/2pi) and achieve a 20uW ERP eventually.
73 to all VLFers
