Hi Paul, VLF,
Great! I think this is the longest EbNaut message ever, so far ;-)
Thanks for the decode.
We needed 3 days but the right 2 days would have been fine as well. Did
you try to decode the 3rd on its own?
With just a few 1/10 dB less noise we could manage a decode in one
night, that's impressive.
I could now try to pass you a 1000 character message using ebkey and a
relay steered by the Raspi. But i would tend to focus on other goals in
the next days, i.e. further attempts with RC4HAA.
Markus, the message is in attachment.
