I managed to copy 11 out of 12 sent images this campaign, and if I hadn't screwed up and forgot to turn my RX on at the start of the campaign I might have copied them all, and all cleanly. Unfortunately I missed the first three, and the noisy pics you see were the only ones I copied of those particular images. Still, this was by far the most success I've had with one of these things. Glad to see that they fixed whatever problem was reportedly plaguing the late July campaign that targeted Europe specifically which few in North America had a chance to catch.

All images received using SDRplay RSP2pro, DBJ-1 vertically polarized 2m j-pole, HDSDR to record (due to the ease of programming), SDRuno to playback (due to AFC function), and MMSSTV to decode.

"Shortwave pirate radio is basically like a very expensive and unreliable way to podcast to a random audience of dozens of people around the world while also worrying that government agents might knock down the door." - Matt Blaze
