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.

It is almost summer, i have new antenna and i am back on 4. RX only for now, will try to
sort the TX later. Most of the old gear is down, but the OZ2M and the the IC-706 seems
to work, even the frequency is here and there, i will try my best to keep it in the
WSPR window.

My new antenna is double turnstile by G8SEQ:

I seen a prediction for ducting.. I hear 432 beacons.. So, I'm QRV 432.3

Hello WSPR users,

I have been working on a lower cost variant of the Hermes DDC/DUC SDR which I am calling Hermes-Lite. All the details are at

https://github.com/softerhardware/Hermes-Lite

I have been using WSPR/JT9/JT65 to test TX/RX. Details are on github.

Today I will begin my 6 meter WSPR Beacon experiment using 5 watts output to a Squalo antenna at 10 feet.
Location here is EN74oh in Houghton Lake, Michigan which is north central lower peninsula of Michigan about 75 miles north of Saginaw.

The daily total of 160m spots is falling rapidly. Other bands are now attractive even by night. It is time to summarize my 160m NA Rx Challenge: I logged 37 unique callsign of NA station (27 for the previous season) and here is the list with the output power:

chimney aluminium corrugated pipe 1m large.
14cm diameter.
coupled using a T200 working as an impedance adapter. (a loop has a very low impedance)
variable capacitor 2x320pF.
I can tune it as is from 40m to 6m.
it's tuneable till LF adding a parallel capacitor, according to the required band (60, 80, 160, MF, LF).

yes, this rugged loop works in my 1st floor balcony :-)
please feel free to get a look to my spots on public WSPRNET database :-)

I added an 24dB attenuator to my Raspberry Pi. Output is now 200mV over 50 ohm or 100uW. Antenna is a short G5RV, used as an inverted V, just over the top of my house. (10meter) Results are unbelievable. 911 km or 9,110,000 km/Watt.

Don’t know how to tell WSPR just running 100uW

OK I've been using WSPR for some time but mainly with 5w. Recently I have been dropping power and seeing what I get.

Today has been incredible 100mW from Anan100D into ground mounted Butternut HF6V vertical and I get this..

I was trying to control the N2PK VNA from an Arduino, when I got the idea to send WSPR with it. At less than 2mW RF output, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I did manage to get spotted up to 700km away. The credit must go to those receiving stations, they must have very good ears.

I couldn't decode JG1KGS's signal tonight.
Only trace of aircraft reflection was seen.
Please refer the file attached.

I think the reason is that height of my antenna isn't enough.
My antenna height is only 10m. But I'm using homemade tower mounted preamplifier using 3SK97 perhaps.

I built a 4 element wire Yagi for 10 meters. The Yagi was design from scratch using MMANA-GAL. It is my first attempt at design such an antenna and I was curious if it would ever come close to model in the application.

The Yagi boom length is 32 feet and I went for a balance between gain vs. front to back ratio. The Yagi is feed with window line and match with a homemade balance matching unit.

I've received several questions recently about plans for future development of WSPR, so perhaps this is a good time for a public update.

Thought I would post my thoughts on the kit, from Hans Summers

Recently completed the kit complete with the relay board which allow up to six bands, controlled through a simple two button interface to the 2 Line LCD display

Everything worked first time just had to tweak the 125MHz Ref frequency a little and also today adjusted the 20Mhz reference with the help of a frequency counter which now has the onboard Realtime Clock running pretty accurately,

A GPS module is yet to be added but thought I'd try it first without,

I don't know how stable or accurate my radio is on 440, but I'm TX'ing 16% on 432.3015 through a helix pointing up! Right now, and through the night. This ever been done with WSPR? Implications? Multipath? phase distortion? TNX QRZ de KB2MEN

2014 marks the centennial of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). As part of the year long celebration, K4RCG has been authorized to operate with the ARRL HQ callsign as W1AW/4 on WSPR, JT65, JT9, and PSK-31 during "Virginia QSO Party Week". Look for me on all of the usual HF WSPR/JT/PSK freqs. JT65/JT9 and PSK-31 QSOs will be uploaded to LOTW; I will also forward all W1AW/4 WSPR spots to the ARRL but they are not uploadable to LOTW at this time. More info is available at WWW.ARRL.org.

I am testing a 60m beacon with audio generated from a micro processor. Any information on the quality of my signal and speed of the CW at the end will be appreciated. 73 de Paul ZS6EHG

JA1KWV in Tokyo may be on the air tonight(3/14 around 2000 to 2100JST).
Please spot him.

WSPR right
So how about 40.670 MHZ band
Allowed 1 watt eirp with no licence, needed so it should be easy.
Q is?
What frequency should we use?

40.67???
