Great result! We are doing these message transfers on VLF quite
regularly now over such a distance. 8 characters with such a good Eb/N0.
21.89 dB in 25 uHz, that would be good for 20 characters!
Unfortunately i have just one antenna. There are several bands where i
want to do experiments. I'm thinking about 2970 Hz again. Maybe i will
run a 1-week transmission soon. The spectrogram at IK1QFK is very nice
and the larger area confirms even more that my recent 1-week carrier is
actually there, because there is nothing similar visible. It is now also
clear that i run that transmission during the worst time, with the
highest QRM/N :-/

As already observed and decoded, another message is transmitted right
now, same parameters as below, started 18 UTC.
This should decode in Moscow :-)
