The second and third SAQ transmissions were also clearly copied using
the SM6LKM converter/FT-817 and your mini-whip design. This was the first
time SAQ was heard here using a mobile RX. It was in a quiet location,
a km from mains lines and other RF pollution. SAQ became quite weak when
the RX was in the forest however. The trees must be good conductors at
Is the low-power miniwhip mentioned below the same new one designed with
help from G4COL with a J310, Rs= 47-270 ohm and the FT-37-43 xfmr? I'd like
to try that at VLF.
73 and congrats to all who heard SAQ.

The first scheduled transmission of SAQ today has been received very well here.
There are still 2 more transmissions today: starting 10:15 UTC with a messagae
at 10:45 UTC
and 12:15 / 12:45 UTC.
My PERSEUS SDR is available for those who own a PERSEUS and my KiWiSDR is also
on line, each
connected to its own low power mini-whip, which shines at VLF.
