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.

February continues to provide good news on 160m. That night a new entrant W3TIM (registered for 2 days) created the event; heard by 9 stations in Europe, it has lowered its power to 200mw at EU sunrise with a new record distance:

2015-02-17 07:12 W3TIM 1.838107 -25 0 FM18cl 0.2 F59706 JN07th 6260 **new distance record**
2015-02-17 07:12 W3TIM 1.838112 -29 0 FM18cl 0.2 G4BOO IO91ij 5906

I just returned from holiday, and I just caught up on the many new user account approvals pending since Stu's departure (below) as the person who handled most of that side of the site administration the last several years. So if you have been waiting for your account to be enabled, it should be now. Going forward, I'll try to keep up with this on a regular basis. 73,

I have just uploaded a new version to Google Play at

The main changes since the previous version are :-
Screen keep alive.
Checking of device date and time.
The app now refreshes one band every ten minutes and whispers something like 'Ten meters open to Bravo Lima'.

So every day LA9JO in northern Norway has picked op my signal 2045km away currently on 14.097025. I wonder why I am not getting through now? Have propagation conditions changed or is another signal drowning me out? Any ideas please as I am new to this.




Wired up the GPS receiver and set things in motion for a 10M presence. Its still tuning itself atm, but soon be there.
An excellent kit very well designed BTW.

I need the CAT codes for my FT-991 so I can use the radio with WSPR.
Surely there must be someone at Yaesu who has this information.

The last Yaesu rig I bought was an FT-817nd which had the CAT codes in the back of its manual.
But the FT-991 manual does not include the CAT codes.

The FT-991 advertising copy talks about digital modes. Not too useful without the CAT codes.

Hello all over there.

@ Admin

Is it possible to change the X-Axis of the above mentioned scales to a format like
the Y-Axis?
What I mean:

01/year 06/year 01/year+1 06/year+1 01/year+2 06/year+2 01/year+3
and so on.

It would be easier to compare the seasons for their propagation conditions.


I changed to hh:m4 and 14.097025 MHz as this looked like a freer slot for my friend OZ9U in Denmark. This is the worst direction for my antenna at the moment so it will be lucky to get through

I just uploaded a new video taking a first look at the SOTABeams Peak Endfed tuner. I made a WSPR test on 10 meters, and documented my first impressions about the tuner. Please do take a look.

Just like the ATX Walkabout, Ill do a complete WSPR test using the SOTABeams Peak Tuner and publish the results on YouTube.

As always 73 and good DX

I am thinking about using a WSPR beacon MM as a long distance position tracking as well as for studying propagation. My thoughts on tracking on my sailing blog with a picture of my breadbaord U3.

Licenced 35 years ago this past January, Extra class.

I am nobody in WSPR and ready to learn from bottom !

All suggestions how to start will be very much apreciated !

thanks and best 73 de i4oqa 7 Yoky.

Hello All

Myself and other will be running WSPR beacons tonight.
Set your dial at 474.2 khz upper side band.
I will be running 2 watts ERP into 60 ft vertical.
This station has been copied all over the US , AK, HI, Canada and EU
There is some info on qrz-dot-com.
My Call sign is WG2XXM ( Experimental License ).
Unless you have an experimental license you may not
transmit on this band.
However you can monitor and upload your spots.( Much Appreciated )

Using 1/4 wave fan dipole. 20ft up on 40,30,20+ 15m. Rig - Kenwood ts440s. At cabin using hustler 3b with 3 dovetail raidials. Works well
