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.

To day i started my big measuring program to get a statistical
feeling about conditions on 80 m. over 240 Km. distance.
A 10 Watt transmitter is running now with a 40m. endfed longwire at
about 6 meter above ground (West-East orientation)
This rig will operate for a few weeks without any changes.
My receiving station is located in Breda with call: PA0JEN
This station also will not change.
PA0JEN has a high level of local noise in an urban location.

Just thought I'd write up a quick note about my station. I built it up over christmas, it was a great excuse to get the iron out and remind myself how to solder again.

I'm running a Raspberry Pi with JamesP6000's fork of the WsprryPi project, which is a credit to all concerned. James has added some useful options to the software which makes keeping it on a stable frequency quite simple.

I have the Flex set up to beacon WSPR on 17 meters. Output power is 1 watt. The antenna for transmit is the 30 meter delta loop. For RX, both the 30 and 40 meter delta loops are used in diversity to the two receivers on the Flex.

On the frequency of the 20 meters 14.097.08 and 'active 24 hours on 24, my beacon in qrsss way. The antenna is a dipole positioned east / west, and the power 'of about 20 db. More info and updates visit QRZ.COM IK6ZEW looking for.
73' to ALL !!!

I usually use WSPR with 5W out, but tonight I plan to leave it on with just 500mW or so, to see hot it turns out. 7MHz band, 41m long OCFD.

Finally back on using Elecraft K3 (5w) into a loaded whip antenna at 13m (for 160m).

Hi there is a spot that has its year set to be 2030 that always sits at the top of the 50MHz band listings, does anyone know how to get it purged?

My latest aerial has been a vertical for 40 mtrs .
This 33 ft long with 30 radials laid on the ground not buried and a 5 ft copper ground rod. The vertical is mounted 2 feet off the ground.
Performance on WSPR has been very good with reports from VK & N2 4X and ZR.
No loading or tuning required and the SWR is 1.7.1 and the resistance is 37 ohms so it looks about right.

Tell N9WKW he's reporting on the wrong band!

I use a Kenwood TS-590S and don't see it in the WSPR v2.0 r1714 software CAT menu. Does anyone know if the Kenwood TS-2000? CAT selection will work?

Merry Christmas All.Thanks...

My daughters tell me that I was very nice throughout the year. So my request to Santa Claus is simple, I want to spot Leigh (VK2KRR) in 160m soon ... HI!!! I do not know but this season it does not happen ...
Merry Christmas to all,
