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.

1 W to reach Europe on 160m fm west coast by W1CK

On October 28 I had the chance to spot W1CK from west coast. Steve worked at this time with 5w. It was already a first one for me. This morning at sunrise, the conditions were great for a new hop between San Diego (West Coast) and Europe. I was not alone to take advantage of these conditions:
2013-12-22 07:16 W1CK 1.838159 -23 0 DM13ie 5 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:16 W1CK 1.838160 -27 0 DM13ie 5 G8DYK IO85te 8410 32
2013-12-22 07:16 W1CK 1.838159 -25 0 DM13ie 5 PA0O JO33hg 8987 30
2013-12-22 07:20 W1CK 1.838163 -21 0 DM13ie 5 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:22 W1CK 1.838165 -26 0 DM13ie 5 G8DYK IO85te 8410 32
2013-12-22 07:22 W1CK 1.838164 -20 0 DM13ie 5 F59706 JN07th 9190 37

Then, Steve managed the timing and lower power to 1w (all time first one) at 07:40z official sunrise time at my QTH:
2013-12-22 07:30 W1CK 1.838163 -20 0 DM13ie 5 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:34 W1CK 1.838164 -21 0 DM13ie 2 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:38 W1CK 1.838163 -23 0 DM13ie 2 F59706 JN07th 9190 37
2013-12-22 07:40 W1CK 1.838163 -25 0 DM13ie 1 F59706 JN07th 9190 37

Can we go lower? it is likely... Anyways Thanks to Steve to provide opportunities and animations in 160m band.

It was also an effective try of my new Wellbrook ALA100 active loop, the HG version just received from Andrew Ikin.

Thank you to all, Patrick

0 dBm spots on 30M are no mistake

Finally realized that I could use the XVTX/C port on my FLEX-1500 to TX at 1 mW. Been running it all afternoon and evening on 30M and plan to run it all night, at least. Will try other bands later when the contest is over. Using a G5RV at 45ft. WSPR-X TX set at 50%. Thanks to the spotters below as they are the first to hear me at reference power!

Massive VKs ZLs on 6m

Today, I've got 69spots on 6m WSPR from VK and ZL.
It was very lucky that the condition lasted over 3hours.
Thank you very much.

Ultimate 3 up & running

Completed the Ultimate 3 kit build. Everything seems to be working just fine. Love the new backlit LCD. Need to check freq and calibrate. Running WSPR now on indoor dipole on 28126150 but no spots. Must be off a bit. Will investigate.

First WSPR session

First foray into digital modes and thought I'd try WSPR following a demo at our radio club.

Set up a Yaesu 817 with a signalink USB and running 5W into a Miracle Whip.

Wow, what results I'm getting from the South Coast of the UK on 30m.

On 10m with 1W

I've decoded 143 LZ1OI, and 47 EA5DOM. I can see another trace at 210 ish, just outside the band, so I'll try tuning 20 Hz higher to see if I can decode it. My calibration may be a bit out?

That brought another station into the band, but no decode. I can see another station futher up. I see no stations in the lower 50 Hz of the band. I'll tune up another 40Hz, so dial freq 28.124,66 Mhz now 12:31 UTZ.

My beacon active daily 24h. in 10.138.7

I active daily in 10.138.7 khz. 24h. The power is 5 w. and the antenna is a vertical line on a fishing pole 6 meters long.. with a remote automatic tuner.
Daily reporting DX stations from Asia. Oceania. Americas and European friends. Especially congratulate YV4GJN, LA9JO, 4X1RF, W3HH, WD6DOD, EA6FG, and many others.. .. always well heard here in Spain.
Confirm any report via eqsl. bureau or direct. My info: http://www.qrz.com/db/EA5WO
Greetings to all. Merry Christmas.! Andreu T. 73 EA5WO

Nice condx on 80m

Hi,

Yesterday the propagation was clearly better than the weeks before and many european stations were listening.
I hope tonight will be as good, and reports arriving from Australia seem to confirm this.

73,

N9XG 160m session

Generally, propagation conditions in 160m wspr between NA and EU are erratic. Similarly, an NA signal can be heard strongly somewhere in Europe and 500km away from there the signal is zero. Well, last night and around EU sunrise, Ian (N9XG) showed us something very different. Its 5w were heard continuously from 03:36z until 07:16z in a wide band from Goteborg (Sweden) to Valencia (Spain) by 10 European stations: The lucky ones are (fm north to South): SM6WZI, OZ7IT, G8DYK, PA0O, PE1MPX, GW0OAJ, G4BOO, DK6UG, F59706, EA5ZL. Congratulations to Ian (N9XG) for this wonderful session. By my side, Ian is my 26th NA station entering in my 160m Challenge list. My score (27) of the previous season is already very close,... "Guys, 160m wspr is always pleasure"

432 MHz WSPR over the Pacific Coastal Range

I checked into the Northern California 432 SSB Net on 432.100 MHz at 1900 PST on Sunday night and also listened carefully as 1 kW net control station KG6HXI in Wilton CA swung her large Yagi antenna calling for check ins around the compass points. I heard some weak SSB signals at or below the noise level from the north and south SF bay area. This suggests that 432 MHz WSPR contacts are possible from Sacramento to those areas.

This Radio Mobile coverage map for the 5 element 432 MHz Yagi with a fixed 230° bearing shows the 3 dB beam width extending from near Santa Rosa to San Jose on the Pacific Coast. The coastal ranges present a formidable obstacle for this radio circuit. My station will be on 432.301510 MHz with the Northern California VHF/UHF WSPR Study Group from Tuesday night through Wednesday.

Carol KP4MD, Citrus Heights, CA

18 DEC 2013 update - This Propagation map shows 432 MHz WSPR contacts achieved over the Pacific Coast ranges with 50 watts and 5 element Yagi antenna at 17 feet at KP4MD station near Sacramento, California.

WSPR-X 15 minute mode

Hi Folks:
I've been monitoring 15 min mode on 160, but no hits. Is there a distinction in the activity list for 15 min mode? I don't see anything.
Thanks

30 Meters - RX Only

Listening only on 30 meters. The antenna is a delta loop whose base is 10 feet off the ground. The loop is fed 1/4 down on one side with window line. The RXer is the Flex 5000A and I am using the second receiver as the source for WSPR.

TEP and ES propagation on 6m?

Were these reports indicating combination of TEP and ES?
It was regrettable that I couldn't send WSPR report to VK2KRR.
