Geomagnetic K-index elevated March 21 through March 23, approximately 3 < Kp <
4 but higher in Europe with levels at Wingst and Niemegk varying by 50nT to
80nT at times during that period.
Mentioning this in case it applies to received phase of the 2970 signal.
But now wondering if this disturbance should be thought of as cause or effect,
with 2970 TX currents having grown to 180 mA.

Subject: Re: ULF: New carrier near 2970 Hz...
Interesting. Do you also use the noise normalisation function which proved to
be useful in recent stackings on 5170 Hz?
Still a few weeks before the 6 channel input soundcard for the Raspi appears...
