Hi Rik, Stefan. Interesting discussion :-)
Yes. The problem here is worse, as I'm further away from the center of activity (central EU) and so better Tx
is needed to reach here. last night conditions were not bad. I can easily see that when I can see the trace
of the carrier at 475.500 in the WSPR grabber
I do already have my Rx at my remote QTH at 7km. This is not superb Rx, but much better than my Tx site
I can also use other SDRs for Rx, but here comes the point of this to be then ....fake QSOs ?? ;-)
...i would have another explanation :-)

maybe your big building is good for transmitting but not so good for receiving due to all the local noise. Setting up a remote RX at a quiet location could do miracles.
In JT9-1 mode signals can be copied down to -26dB and you peaked +1dB, so these was a margin up to 27dB (500 x power !!!).

Pity ! Could not receive anybody here. And conditions were not bad at all. I was spotting LA2XPA in WPSR at that time
I have been monitoring JT9 for some time now and can recall receiving you and other stations
Unfortunately Eric, ON5TA, got a problem in his PA and is QRP now
Anyway the downconverter is online and if there is any other chance we can try QSO
