Herm Island 2013 was great - anyone lucky enough to get gp0pkt on WSPR ? They ran a qrp
on 30 metres.
I have posted some audio grabs of the phone operation on 40 metres if anyones wants a listen
they are here: http://www.qrz.com/db/G0IER

I will be trying 160m tonight on a longwire antenna and 5w. Very interested to know how it works.
Hi everybody. I'm new to WSPR and am puzzled as to why it appears that nobody else heard a particular station recorded by myself this morning.
The log entry reads:
2013-10-02 09:36 O76OZG 14.097030 -31 1 NQ84 0.002 2E0SQM IO91up 4751 295
Can somebody please explain what has happened.
Kind regards, Ray 2E0SQM
No effect on propagation, so far.
Really sorry! The following spots were on 20m, not Top Band!

I've been very impressed by the high standard of the frequency reporting I'm seeing. Great job there folks!
Here's a good example (I transmitted on 14.097192 MHz, referenced to a GPS disciplined oscillator):

Yes really active. This morning between 04:08z and 06:04z no less than 50 dx spots "across the pond" with an beautiful and constant propagation, clean traces without qsb or qrn.
10 stations have benefited from these conditions and of course there is still room for new entrants during this magical time of sunrise. So come on guys,...
By my side, 6 NA stations spotted with a new one K7EA (Richard), bringing my Challenge score to 8 since aug-24/2013.
NA Callsign listing (pwr): VA3MW/P(5w), W1FVB(1w), WB5WPA(5w), VE3SWS(5w), K4RCG(5w), K9PAW(1w), K9YWO(1w), K7EA(5w).
My score is probably close of Tom (G8HUH), the best ears in central europe.
Thank you to all , the new season is well underway ; GREAT!!
First time on WSPR and i have been heard by US, USSR, OZ and Malaysia on 5 watts.... how cool is that!
hello on test today 160m 5 w dipole 2x30m monoband
tnx fer report
I will be running my WSPR standalone beacon with less than 1W to an OCF-Dipole for at least the next 7 nights.
Already received reports from VK6XT and NH7SR so it is working ok...
Yan - XV4Y.

My name is John and the QTH is Mount Hope in Ontario. The TX is a WSP kit buildas a club project at the PARC in Brampton. It's output power is 100mW and the antenna is a 30m dipole on a 45 degree in NNE direction.
Flex F5000 tranceiver 100W
Flex F1500 tranceiver 5W
Beam TH11DX and CL33
Despite average conditions 160m is currently attractive in EU. This morning around 38 stations on air (tx-rx).
25 dx Spots "across the pond" during greyline from K9PAW, K9YWO, VA3MW/p, VE3SWS, G8HUH, F6CNI, G3ZJG, F59706.
Congrats to John (G3ZJG) for "two-way" contacts with VE3SWS and VA3MW/P- Rarely seen at this time frame.
By my side, I hope to hear and decode Laurence (KL7L), recent WSPRer but yet very active.
One word to say "AGAIN,.."
Back in July I posted an entry to advise that the Martello Tower Group are running a WSPR beacon on 30m. We've received a lot of reports and initial indications are that it's a useful beacon to have online.
As of the 17th September we are also running WSPR on 10m using 300mW to a 5/8 vertical on top of the Martello Tower.
Hopefully this beacon will help with propagation testing on 10m and the fact that it's an 'always on' signal may persuade a few extra people to switch to 10m for a while to look for it.
As always, we look forward to reception reports and we hope that WSPR users will benefit from our 10m beacon.
At the time of writing, 10m is open from the UK to the USA with some good signals being reported.

This may, or may not, be of interest!
The antenna is a horizontal wire, about 80m long and 15 meters high, sloping down a little at the ends. The down lead of approximately 10 metres couples into a variometer matching unit and is tuned against a ground mat of 20 ground rods placed over an area of 100 m2. The estimated ground resistance is 11 ohms and the antenna radiation resistance calculated as 0.33 ohms. The overall set up has therefore an efficiency of 2.9%. My transmitter currently produces 50 watts output and therefore the erp is estimated as 1.45 watts. I round this up to 2 watts to be safe and this is what I declare in the spots.
I do intend to build another smaller transmitter to produce an erp of 0.1 to 1 watt and will run this later.
I can be contacted by email
I will be trying my 8 Band Buckmaster OCF dipole and 1 watt tonight.
Well by the end of the Month i'll be dipping my toes into digital modes, have already installed JT65, 9 and WSPR software to the laptop and my folks are getting me this for my birthday, http://www.g4zlp.co.uk/unified/DM_MiniPRO.shtml I'll be using it initially with my 857D and then my Icom 718 (once the 40m mod is done!)
I want to apologise for incorrectly posting 6 meter contacts when in fact they were 30 meter contacts.
Seems my PC and FT847 stopped talking to each other. I do not know what can be done to correct the data base.
Sorry for any inconvenience. Cheers, Dick
I will be testing my 17' Vertical at 1 Watt on 20m during the day today (9/16/2013) using Elecraft K3 and SignaLink. My location is FM18qt south of Annapolis, MD and west of Washington, DC.
I will take matching heard/hearing contacts and upload to LoTW during the week.
