Nice decodes Alex! I have not had much luck this summer hearing VMW.....I hope that as we get closer to the Autumnal Equinox, the reception will greatly improve. Nice website you have BTW!

Thank you, Chris! These charts were received with some phase jumps, which I corrected manually. It seems like BOM has some synchronization fault in VMW transmissions currently. Initially I thought, that was a trouble with decoding on my side, but then found this post with explanation:
