It's the German Weather Service. Set your decoder to 50 Baud, 450 Hz spacing
and you can easily read it, it's Baudot code. The contents are synoptic
weather bulletins and occasional clear text weather forecasts and other
They transmit from northern Germany, near Hamburg, with several transmitters
of around 1 to 10kW (20kW on longwave).
See below for other frequencies (in German):
