Here is a spectrogram  (attached) showing the reprocessed data of the VLF stream of DL4YHF.
The 2470.01 Hz carrier leaves a clear trace, not as strong as on 2970 Hz but clearly there. The trace appears to be a bit shorter, maybe due to higher QRN levels which were blanked or due to a loss of the reference signal (unlikely).
The first hour of the transmission produced a 18 dB SNR peak. Adding the second hour of the transmission made the result even a bit worse.
313 km distance on the 121 km band, that's ~ 2.6 wavelengths crossed...

Thanks Markus, ULF,

Again, congrats to the DL0AO crew for the latest record. We are operating on the 121 km band and crossed a distance of 283 km, or 2.3 wavelengths!! Certainly this has never been done before by amateurs.
DL0AO has now a new lowest frequency for a amateur signal detection :-)

Unfortunately i slept too long this morning and so i started the experiment to late. I see the QRN is already increasing now and it has been lower in the early morning. Maybe, the next weekend we could try 1.97 kHz but then with an earlier start time.
Here, the experiment is still running and i can hear the FETs beeping. Due to the relatively low ambient temperature, the accu voltage dropped to 11.5 V now and i have a remaining charge of 25.( AH or 21%. The antenna current dropped to 2.6 A now. 5 minutes left, then i will go QRT.

73 from the car,

Again a very good signal at DL0AO, about 12 dB in 1.5 * 424 uHz:

We're also running a 47 uHz instance in the background, still showing yesterday's experiment:

What a splendid start into the New Year!

Best wishes to all,
Markus (DF6NM)

Betreff: ULF: Carrier on 2470.01 Hz


Due to the recent success on 2970 Hz i am now TXing again on my ground
loop antenna. This time, since 12:08 UTC i am transmitting on 2470.01
Hz. Again the TX power is 520 W and i'm getting 2.75 A antenna current.
This time i need 1.72 uF for series resonating the antenna. As usual, i
intend to run the carrier for 2 hours.
Reports are very much apprechiated :-)
Unfortunately my own tree is shut down but i'm recording the stream of
DL4YHF and IK1QFK again. Also the DL0AO crew is watching and recording.
Maybe even Paul will get something significant?

With some luck, 2.47 kHz may propagate even better than 2.97 kHz ??
Optimism is the key word for the year!

Oh and attached is a spectrogram produced from the stream of DL4YHF,
showing my signal on 2.97 kHz. The SNR is far better than i ever
expected from such an antenna! See attachment. A long message could have
been transferred over this 313 km path!

Happy new year 2019 to all of you.

73, Stefan
