Loop is still E-W... I'll get around to moving it N-S some day.

I've heard that station, but it was last winter & spring. I may have heard it before that. Never heard an ID after listening for quite a while. Signal was sufficient, but not all that strong.  I'll have to check for it again.

Yeah, I fully agree.

Each of the signals is 50 Hz

This is a screenshot from the waterfall in WSJT-X for 6m, 12m, and 15m.

I still would like to see what's south of us. With 30dB null in my loop, its not been good for down there. Although many times, Gatun and Miraflores came in quite strong.

It did take Canada a long time, I was a bit surprised. Considering they'd been planning for years with a date to turn them off, but apparently things moved slow. Unless there was some renegade up there reading our posts and didn't turn them off, then someone in mgmt found out they weren't off yet.  ;D

This DGPS project was great fun. I still wish they were all going. I especially liked the station not far from here at Alma, WI that would come in 24x7. When it didn't, then I knew I had a problem with my station. 

All good things must come to an end. Hopefully something else will come up.

I think they're all gone now.

I had ADGPS set to show 2+ decodes. I set it to 1 and it found three:
Count    ID   ref1 ref2 kHz   Baud City                           Country              Lat      Lon      km     Deg
1        673  751  752  303.0 200  Pyeongchang                    South Korea          37.333   128.483  9,940  328
1        204  463  463  310.0 100  Canivete                       Brazil               0.516    -50.424  6,499  127
1        971  903  904  307.0 200  Gatun                          Panama               9.261    -79.937  4,181  158



South Korea is impossible.
Brazil, is possible, but would be a first. I consider it undetermined
Gatun definitely comes in here, so this could be a good decode.


Haven't seen any Canadian stations since the last post with them. Probably won't be doing this much more. I'm going to see if I can move the loop antenna from E-W to N-S (i.e. to another side of the garage). It will be a bit lower to the ground, but it'll have to deal with it.

I haven't posted in a while as there have been no decodes. While propagation has been tough and thunderstorm season is now starting, even during the sufficient days, there have been no decodes.

I've been decoding every day and nothing comes up. Not even from Panama... but they're off the side of the loop (-30 db down), so I don't blame them too much. I think the Canadians have finally shut off their transmitters, or decreased power.

Correct, that change came in version 1.666. It is an option that is enabled by default and can be disabled in the Control section of the admin page.

New checkbox on control tab: "Require name/callsign entry when connecting".
Forces the user to enter a non-blank entry before a new connection will proceed.
Not shown again since the name/callsign is now in browser storage for this Kiwi.

There hasn't been any decodes as of late. Was starting to wonder if something here is bad or the Canadian stations have gone off the air or dropped power. The Panama stations don't come in here reliable with the antenna running E-W.

I have a 2010 that I bought in April of 1988. Still listen to it all of the time to this day. It will go to the grave with me.
