Hi Riccardo, |
Congrats to the decode.
Here i also focused on the message starting 06:30 UTC. So far no decode
but i spent most of the time to find the best antenna mixing for a
cardioid. I'll keep trying.
These guid rails near your house, can you reach them from the house
with a cable, so you can stay at home relaxed? Or would it have to be a
portable experiment too?

Thanks for report, Paul!
This morning, with the second transmission, I almost
hit the "noise hole". Instead, the last one was 80% sent when the rain
forced me to shut down the TX: too much kV for a wet and pretty small
inverted "L" (12 m high, 36 m long) :-)
I'm looking for a new antenna, inspired by Stefan:
near my house, there are two guard rails spaced about 700 m which are
of interest for a ground loop experiment.
Stay tuned, as they say :-)

Decoded, Eb/N0 = -0.3 dB, S/N -62.61 dB in 2.5kHz;

No decode on this one.
