locked Re: VLF Reception


Hi Alan,

You were hearing Krasnodar and the double pulse from Novosibirsk in that recording.  Here's what they looked like on my HF+ and Wellbrook LFL1010 loop.

Thanks, I'd almost given up looking.
My HF+ does have the R3 mod. The only reception I get is on my discone,
so I'd suggest anyone tries any "stupid" antenna they have.
(I've also tried my Wellbrook, various wires, dipoles, e-probes,
vertical to simulate the discone's situation and receive nothing there.)
The discone also did very well on SAQ hearing the carrier leakage before
they started keying. Surely I can make something better...
