Attached screenshots show the unspread spectrum and the time-domain correlation for DF6NM, Nov. 12-13th. Here are Eb/N0 estimates derived from the correlation:

 date    DF6NM  DL0AO (west)
 Nov.      dB           dB
11-12    -10.1      -10.4
12-13     -8.1       -10.9
13-14     -8.8       -10.2

Obviously neither DL0AO nor DF6NM came anywhere near the decode threshold.  Paul's receiver is just awesome...

Best 73,
Markus

Hi Paul, Stefan,

this is an impressive result!

I want to correlate the message against DL0AO and DF6NM data to see how close we may have got. However copying the result from your email produced only for 298 characters between the quotes - maybe something has been lost in email formatting? 

Best 73,
Markus (DF6NM)

"HELLO PAUL AND THE REST OF THE LF GROUP! WELL, THIS IS THE NEW
LONGEST MESSAGE TRANSMITTED ON VLF. THANKS TO ALL STATIONS WHO
PARTICIPATE IN THE EXPERIMENTS SINCE 2010! VLF IS A GREAT REAGION
IN THE RF SPECTRUM. WHO KNOWS WHAT WE WILL DEVELOP AND DISCOVER
IN THE NEXT TIME :-D 73 DE DK7FC IN JN49IK"

using combined 12th/13th and 13th/14th.

Constant reference phase, Eb/N0 = +1.7 dB, BER 21.4%, list rank 0
S/N -12.40 dB in 1Hz, -46.38 dB in 2.5kHz.

Each night:

11th/12th Eb/N0 = -4.4 dB, phase 101.5 deg, -18.50 dB in 1Hz;
12th/13th Eb/N0 = -2.0 dB, phase 92.5 deg, -16.07 dB in 1Hz;
13th/14th Eb/N0 = -0.6 dB, phase 100.6 deg, -14.73 dB in 1Hz;

Combinations
11/12 + 12/13: -0.1 dB (no decode up to 6E6 list);
12/13 + 13/14: +1.7 dB (decodes BER 21.4% rank 0);
11/12 + 13/14: +0.7 dB (decodes BER 22.6% rank 82);

All three: +2.6 dB;
