Thanks Stefan,

Yes, we must try this. I will use the SL ini file you sent me. Tonight a pickup wire is feeding SL to improve phase stability.

Again congrats to your new longest message over that path!

On a quiet night (or maybe two) it should be possible to transfer 1 character from Joe to me i think. Joe, do we want to try that? I would not transmit during that night then.
Paul, did you copy my message from last night and the night before? I am
getting no decode at RC4HAA, even when stacking both nights.

Decoded 'EINSTEIN' from the overnight 8th/9th transmission.

Eb/N0 = -0.5 dB, constant reference phase, BER 41.1 %

Symbol error map http://abelian.org/vlf/tmp/171109a.gif

  Night   Eb/N0    Phase   S/N
  6/7th  -20.0 dB < -48 dB in 1Hz
  7/8th  -3.7 dB    97.6  -31.79 dB in 1Hz  (E+H)
  8/9th  -0.5 dB   128.8  -28.63 dB in 1Hz  (E+H)

  8/9th  -3.2 dB   131.1  H-field only
  8/9th  -2.3 dB   126.7  E-field only

Nothing at all from the 1st night and clearly something
broke during the 2nd night.

After a full phase search I got a slight improvement to -0.4 dB
with phase pattern -150,-150,180,180, which means the signal
phase is lagging a little (on average) after about 02:00.

This decode is about at the limit for the transmitter power and
message duration.  Looking at the error map, we might be able to
use a longer message but will probably only manage 9 chars max.
