Norway spot (again) on 472kHz WSPR TX

For the third evening in a row my 5mW ERP from the earth-electrode "antenna" in the ground has been spotted in Norway by LA2XPA (1310km) on 472kHz WSPR. Tonight has started well. PA7EY (306km) has also spotted me on 472kHz WSPR.

UPDATE 1912z: LA2XPA has already spotted me 3 times on 472kHz WSPR this evening.

UPDATE 2145z: LA8AV (1035km) has been spotted despite my S8 noise floor when the PC is on the SMPSU. He must be a very good signal. BTW, LA2XPA (1310km) has now spotted me 4 times this evening on 472kHz WSPR.

That's fantastic news Roger.....Amazing what earth probe set up can do.
I must be in the "skip zone" since I could not detect you.
I did spot US stations 40 times one night short while ago with only a tiny "Mini Whip" receive antenna!
LA2XPA har a longe beverage antenna sited on an lonely island, so he has a very low noise QTH.
