The Weak Signal Propagation Reporter Network is a group of amateur radio operators using K1JT's MEPT_JT digital mode to probe radio frequency propagation conditions using very low power (QRP/QRPp) transmissions. The software is open source, and the data collected are available to the public through this site.

I've noticed for some time now that DC4LC is continually mis-reporting the
bands of his spots.

My 10Mhz TX is being reported as being on 7Mhz and 14Mhz.

Obviously these false spots are going to be happening to everyone he received on 10Mhz !

I don't have his contact details, but of DC4LC is reading this, can you please correct
your equipment.

Thank you.

Great to see the first active night of the new season to NA stations. Around 50 dx spots across the pond in the wspr data base between 01:46z and 05:10z and three NA stations heard in EU : KJ4YBS, K9PAW and K4RCG. We can congratulate Bob (K4RCG) for the new and effective 160m antenna.
W3PM, K9AN and K9YWO were "on air" but have not been heard.
I'm naturally optimistic for the rest of the season and the running score of my Challenge. Good luck to all, 73

Hi All,

I have written a WSPR tutorial to assist beginner WSPR operators in being able to get the most out their WSPR stations.

Many operators, including myself, face a bewildering array of features and subtleties which define the WSPR system as a whole. This guide hopes to help beginners overcome some of the difficulties of WSPR and find their feet as operators.

This was originally focused at the ZS (South Africa) region.

This is a work in progress and many people have assisted in proof-reading the information.

Feedback is always appreciated.

I'll be listening on 474 KHz tonight using WSPR-15 mode in case any of the Lowfers are interested. Gear is a 43 Foot vertical, Funcube Pro+ Dongle, and Clifton Labs low pass filter designed to cut off local BCB signals.

Anyone have any idea where the wsprx (the experimental slow 15 minute mode) reports end up?

I'm sitting on 160m running wspr-x at 1 watt at the moment (18:00 UTC) but I can't see where any maps or other supporting information like who else is on is to be found.

Or am I on my own? :-)

My VFO stabiliser is now working and has locked the old TS120S VFO and cured it's until now temperature related frequency drifts. It worked very well at stabilising the VFO initially but because of over compensation the receiver would not decode WSPR signals. However after reducing the varactor to VFO coupling, all is now working very well. I am very pleased with the X-Lock from Cumbria designs.

Put the Funcube Pro+ dongle on 30M tonight, attached to a 43 Ft. ground mounted vertical on the West side of the house, and let it run. It's a surprising receiver, with great sensitivity across a wide range. I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a few VK loggings when I woke up this morning. As a stand-alone receive only WSPR system, I'm pretty impressed with the little Funcube.

I caught an interesting false decode today. Details here:
http://david-g0lrd.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/wspr-false-decode-curiosity.html

For some reason, I seem to be hearing a lot more than anyone else. This is a sufficiently strange phenomenon for me that i thought I would share my kit with others - particularly G8DYK, G4BOO, PE1MPX and OZ7IT.

I'm using a IC-756 Pro III set at about 5W into an SGC MAC-200 ATU which is handling a long wire. No idea how long, but it runs down the side of a small field, in the hedge. It's about 10m high at it's best point, which is in a tree, followed by a long, sloping section. It's not great, but it is straight.

I left my station on WSPR 30m all night. My Hustler 20m coil was extended with a 50MHz 1/4 wave whip to make it work on 30m. I was spotted in Ontario and USA East Coast on paths 2000 to 4000 km. Not bad for +13 dBm (0.02 W), and the antenna is less than 3 meters long.

A simple field strength check shows the 6m whip is a few cm too long. Thus I am off-resonance, and my SWR is probably high. Nevertheless this 30m "kludge" seems to work.

How does the UK operate on 2m?

I've spend some time, today, vertically on .492 and heard nothing. I'd have expected to hear one or two people who were on today :-(

Hello

Certainly interesting. I ran for most of the afternoon on a long wire from an ft-897 running at 37dBm, and collected a couple of G-stations.

I swapped to a TS-2000, 37dBm, using a home brew off-centre fed dipole which is (I know) quite a lot better than the long wire on every band except top band. I'm now into IK, HB, EA...

Trouble is there is more than one variable here. So no conclusions!
