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.

Here is my presentation about WSPR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7Ih2EGzuTw

Surprise to hear John W1TAG as WE3XGR/3 (part5 license)on 630m.

I plan to spend more time on MF to log part5 calls as probably a new RX Challenge...
I cross my fingers !!!

GL all, 73, Patrick

I have just posted a new design on my blog.

It might interest the techies out there.

Will be going receive-only for 2+ weeks while I work on things....

Today i had a ham test session at my home everyone who took the test passed right now I am known as KB1PYU (ag) congratulations to bill KC1GFT

Band Hopping 40, 30, & 20m. I wish I had some more flexibility in my antenna setup. 80m just won't tune

Simply plugged my little WSPR tx in and sat back to see what happened. Was over the moon to be heard over 13000 km away using less than 1 watt. Seems to be working very well so far.

Hoping to have all HF bands from 20m - 10m on air soon along with the odd bit of 6m.

DP0GVN, Neumayer Station, on Ekstroem Ice Shelf in Antarctica just picked up my 2 watt WSPR signals on 20 meters (at -22 dB SNR)... Wow! That is amazing... A distance of 14,785 kilometers from Helsinki, Finland, with just 2 watts...

But then again I picked up a station in the Republic of South Africa on 15 meters two days ago, and it was transmitting with just 200 milliwatts.

New active dx night (Sept12) on 160m with 348 dx spots "across the pond", 68% after 04:00z.
38 stations in the session.
10 NA stations heard in EU: AA3GZ K9AN K9PAW KD5DFL K9YWO KK1D W1FRA W8AC W8OZZ WD1S
12 EU stations heard in NA: 2E0ILY EA1FBU F6CNI G0LUJ G3JKV G4BOO HF7A M6VPW ON7KB ON7KO PA1RZ PA2W.

Current 160m dx level is at least two months in advance…..

Nice surprise 1 hour before my sunrise:

Last time I heard a ZS stn on 160 wspr was Aug30-2013 with ZS1LS…..

ZS4TX had been heard in EU, today Sept11, by G8DYK, DH5RAE, G8LCO, F59706, yesterday Sept10 by G8DYK
In NA, today, by K9AN, W8AC, WA0JYF and yesterday by WD1S, W8AC.

Obviously I screwed up. How do I get it back?

Hi Folks

Just a quick go at using WSPR and my first time ever using a data mode.

Software very very easy to set up and use. Had it working within minutes.

Very Happy.

Hello all,
I have been doing analysis of Spring/Summer Es for 12 years, mostly with PropNET (PSK31). This year I switched to WSPR. I have posted the seasonal recap on my personal blog.
http://ka5dwipropagation.blogspot.com/2016/09/2016-springsummer-es-seaso...
I found the same trends and tendencies that I have experienced over the years. It just was not a very good Es season.

Heard ZL on top band... 0532gmt. A few years ago, this would have been at the height of DXing but now done using a piece of wet string.

0532 -20 -0.8 1.838104 0 ZL3PX RE66 43 19058

I am not active with amateur radio much anymore due to my health but I tried to grab a WSPR spot with an RTL-SDR (without upconverter) using only the included 7-8" antenna while mounted indoors. I only got one In about 10 minutes of time (W4MO) He is in EM87 and I am in EM86. Not exactly DX but still impressive!! I am impressed since I have always been intrigued by weak signal work. Virginia to Florida with such a meager receiving setup...Just WOW!!!!
