I would like to do 2.4 GHz microwave oven CW for EME.
Yes, I konw that the signal from an oven is very poor and
very broad and full of 60 Hz noise.  This  makes it not receive
well on a narrowband receiver.

BUT!  Why cannot someone with a DSP soundcard, invent
a wideband detector for 60 Hz microwave oven.  Taking the
broadband  CW "signal" energy out of a broadband receiver
with DSP should give "processing gain" shouldnt it?
