What A Difference A Week Makes on 5745 kHz

The venerable transmitter at the Edward R. Murrow Transmitting Center was a steady s9 + 10 dB in SoCal this week. SailMail was well behaved, as was the geomagnetic field despite recent flares.  It was the best signal ever, and so this test will have to be labelled as a high-quality transmission path.

Copy of the MFSK was 100% in all modes, with files saved in both Flmsg and Flamp.  The Flamp took all three passes, but got it.  If Kim wants to know what worked and what didn't, well, it all worked. 

There'll be more when everything's massaged.
