I don't see any daytime signal at all recently. Nighttime signal
is quite repeatable, except for 31/1st when there was no trace
of the carrier - perhaps it was off?
The last two nights the signal is distinctly stronger, did you
make some improvements Joe?

No, the total induced charge on the E-field probe. At radio and audio
frequencies, photons have absolutely miniscule energy.
If the recent night S/N continues, combined E and H receivers make it
reasonable to try 5 chars of 16K23A with CRC-18 and 26 second symbols,
starting at 23:00 and finishing 07:05:20. Expected Eb/N0 would be
