VLF (Ramsloh) Signal outage 24th to 27th January?

Hi all,

I've just uploaded my latest SID data from my UKRAA VLF and controller (tuned to Ramsloh) and I noticed that there appeared to be no "base" signal for long periods between 24 and 27 Jan. I'd noticed the same early Jan and late December which I assumed to be a Christmas "switch off". Has anyone else noticed this, and is there anywhere we can find out in advance if these periods are scheduled? With it being a military signal I assume not, but worth asking.

Cheers

Kevin

Hi Kevin

My VLF receiver logged an outage on this transmitter as well and this is also confirmed by SID monitoring station on the link below.

Hi Philip,

Hi Philip,

Thanks for confirming- and for the link, that looks like a useful website to help calibrate my data!
