Amateur VLF transmissions this week

G3XIZ as received at 45km 4.6.11
Both Marcus DF6NM and Chris G3XIZ have been active on VLF this last few days. G3XIZ was a good signal on 8.976662kHz with his improved antenna and DF6NM has been copied in Yorkshire by Paul Nicholson. Although QRN can be a problem at this time of the year there is still activity. The screen shot here shows G3XIZ's VLF signal with me today.

Tony, some months ago I calculated G3XIZ's VLF ERP at around 2-6uW. Since then he has improved it a little so maybe as much as 10uW.
