Today I finally managed to decode Stefan's 15 character transmission, using DL0AO data from four days, September 10 to 13. This was quite a challenge...
Two tail ends were missing, due to a TX modulation failure on Monday 12:56 UT, and lost data since Wednesday 12 UT due to a forced reboot of the RX PC.
To make use of all available SNR, it was necessary to include both available channels (West cardioid and East-West earth loop), which is equivalent to a weighted sum of E- and H-field antennas. The complex antenna weighting factor had to be optimized separately for each day. Then the four days were again optimally weighted and summed up.
Using the known message, SNR contributions from the four days could be evaluated separately:
Sun 0910 -6.21 0.239
Mon 0911 -6.01 0.251
Tue 0912 -2.98 0.502
Wed 0913 -5.13 0.307
stacked +0.97 1.250
Stefan, thank you for this message!

Betreff: Re: VLF: 15 charaters on the 67 km band...
I'd like to shorten that transmission experiment a bit. For a decode from Paul or Jacek it may take 2 weeks of daily transmissions. DL0AO however will likely get a decode today, if all works well. After the decode from DL0AO i'd like to stop the test because my new stacked coil is already completed, at least it allows a transmission on 8270 Hz. My larger 3 layer coil allows 700 mA antenna current, the new one allows just 300 mA, i.e. -7.4 dB. Anyway i'd like to test that new coil for the first time. I intend to run DFCW-60000 near 8270.005 Hz. This will allow to see a trace in a 47 uHz spectrogram, for Mike and Luis and DL0AO and maybe even a few more stations. Each 'dit' will take 16 hours.
I'll start in the end of the week but for the newcomers it would make sense to start a RX spectrogram a few days earlier.
An announcement of the carrier transmission will follow during the week...
PS: Markus, if you can decode the message, you can tell it, it's no secret.
