Looking good! Looks to me that your still not in tune though. These coils are very sensitive once you get them in tune, just putting your hand by them will knock them out of tune and you will see the load drop off when you do. I suspect that your square wave is giving it enough of a ping to get it ringing a little bit and your receiver is picking up the HV field. Try separating the coils at a greater distance like 5 or 10 meters and see if you can still get anything with the plate and/or ground wire. Distance effects the tuning slightly so you may need to make adjustments.
