0158 Very faint, deep in the static, but detectable.
0202 Radio Zed CW ID.

Did you fellas notice an increase in the signal from when you first heard it?

not really, it's still extremely faint as of 0209.
0218 still virtually no signal. It's interesting zed, because earlier I was getting Wolverine so strong that I actually turned down the RF gain and applied attenuation, and STILL got +20 peaks. Meanwhile some people said they were only barely hearing them. Maybe I'm in a similar hole where your signal is concerned.

Thanks for the report.  Interesting.  Started out on the mag loop and then when you two gave poor report I switched over to the downspout (which is typically the better of the two but causes all sorts of RFI in the house).  Running at 100 watts in overcast skies.  Might not be a good night.

I can hear Radio Zed on the SDR recording, but due to the almost constant QRM from the UTE, it is an SIO 311.
