Amazing work on ULF. This is very inspring for for someone lamenting
over yet another fried VLF helix. Undaunted, I've sought more wire
to wind a new one.
It is easy to lock to NAA and maybe generate a carrier on 8277 Hz?
During the detection of the far field for the first time on 18 April,
the Alpha stations could be seen in the 11 kHz window. Incidently I
was using the DK7FC VLF probe.

You could generate a separate (maybe locked to NAA) spectrogram from a local
probe to check if everything worked fine from the transmitter site. I always
found my feedback signal from the local tree grabber most useful, i'm even
feeling blind if it is not available :-)

I really enjoyed that, Paul. Thank-you.
The ice is finally melting and it may be possible to raise
the aerial this evening. I will advise when the VLF TX is QRV again.

Is that recorded with antenna direct into soundcard
(metaphorically speaking ) ?
Yes. There's no frequency shift, just amplification of
the audio frequencies present on the E-field probe.
Not even that much amplification, on the order of x50 voltage
gain before the soundcard (which needs 4 volts for full scale).
The only post processing is hum notching, 5 pole high pass
at 300 Hz and 3 pole low pass at 10kHz.
