VLF test by OE3GHB

OE3GHB's VLF loading coil and transmitter
OE3GHB has reported on his 8.97kHz VLF tests this weekend. He was copied by several stations in W.Europe. Gerhard's signal was clearly detected by OK2BVG, DF6NM, DK7FC and by Paul Nicholson in Todmorden. There was a trace seen by G3ZJO. At the moment my VLF system is out of action so I was unable to take a look. The picture shows Gerhard's enormous VLF loading coil. Antenna current was around 600mA and his antenna was a vertical on an 18m fibre glass pole with a 100m horizontal top wire with 600pF capacitance.
