QAM

Received some meteo-charts with the E-probe/HF3/EeeBox-combo....
That not only is interesting to sailors, but also to VHF-dxers... tropo is the name of the game.



This is a part of the fax transmitted by DDH3 (3855kHz). Now, finally, receiving the scheduled navtex from PBK (NCG - Netherlands Coast Guard, Ijmuiden).
