I am running the Softrock RXTX Ensemble with the power output reduced with the Windows XP volume output control and tested with the QRPometer kit from the Four State QRP Group, the Microvert ant is on top of our roof about 10m high.

Smallest portable TX setup for WSPR on 30m ?

Hi to all WSPRers,

Yesterday 06/09/12 at mid-day during my lunchbreak I setup my WSPR gear for the 30m band:

Ultimate QRSS kit 150mW.

Homemade G4ILO (Julian) Wonderloop which has a diameter of just 80cm (made from RG213 coax) on a camera tripod, the loop is about 1,5 above ground.

The QRSS kit is attached to one leg with a bungie cord, the coax going to the loop is about 30cm long.

From 12:00 to 13:00 UTC I had 20 spots, the shortest from LA3JJ a distance of 69 kms, SNR -19, the longest F1VMV a distance of 1760 kms, SNR -6.

I would be interested to hear from anyone who uses a smaller setup for WSPR 30m band.
