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.

anyone interested in using a cq100 ( 29.435 ) as a talk frequency for wspr?

Delighted with the new WSJT integrating WSPR with JT65 etc.

I usually run WSPR with a little Flex 1500 SDR but sometimes with an Apache 100D SDR - both at the 5 watt level. Antenna here is a low horizontal doublet about 20 long and about 5M height mainly for 80/40 NVIS. But with WSPR it seems to go OK on the higher HF bands.

QTH is RE78rs Martinborough (pop 1000) in the far SE corner of the North Island. Hoping to have a 12M vertical doublet up soon for better DX coverage.

Previous calls ZS6BCT, ZS1AMB, VK2BQM

I build ultimate3s beacon kit and it is been running few days on 10m band using my callsign OH1KK.

Yesterday I was really suprised when I saw spot:

Boats have a problem getting HF through a forest of masts in a marina. Tui is currently in Hartlepool with the WSPR transmitting through the tuner and main mast back stay antenna used by the marine MF/HF radio. It has a clear view to the west, and a fairly clear view to the south but a forest of masts north and east.

This link should show where we are although the boats have changed since the photo was taken


I had received 5 stations (!) en 136 Khz last 24h between november 14 and 15 :

Since septembre, I had received 11 stations en this band. I hope there is other !
I monitoring again ...

Its really encouraging to see the likes of Phil FR5DN on Reunion Island trying to give 2m WSPR a run along the path to South Africa (and Australia ;) ). I see we have ZS5LEE and ZS5HV monitoring at the far end. I cant wait to one day see some lines on the map!

Phil FR5DN has made this path to South African stations numerous times before on 144 MHz SSB, JT65 etc. Here is a link to Phil's website with some data about the Tropo paths from Reunion

This excellent web site is written and maintained by Bruce Walker, W1BW. We haven't heard from Bruce in quite some time; presumably he's very busy with work or other obligations.

I get frequent emails from people saying something like "I applied for a WSPRnet account and received a confirmation email telling me approval was pending. Then nothing... Can you help?"

I always tell people to contact W1BW. But I can guess what happens, because I can't raise Bruce by email, either.

Note: under development and very experimental.

Just by chance I was checking 10m around midnight and heard Dave, W1VR (EL98it) 5 times between 0552z and 0628z. First three decodes were strong at -6,-7, and -6. Finished with -24 and -24.

I was heard once at 0600z.
2015-11-12 06:00 KB9AMG 28.126126 -29 0 EN52tx 5 W1VR EL98it 1698 156 was showing a sporadic E cloud in northern Georgia.

Other nearby stations WJ9H (EN53ga) and K9AN (EN50wc) had already been reporting W1VR for about an hour by the time I tuned in.

Sporadic E is an interesting propagation mode.

Now WSPR-X v0.9 r3621 is working on my RaspberryPi 2 model B.

This weekend, I am testing out an end fed 1/2 dipole for portable operation on 20 meters. Nothing fancy. Matching network is a 8:1 impendanc transformation with a resonant tank curcuit. At the time of this posting, I have the antenna strung across the radio room on the second floor on the house. I think it a good worse case test scenario. Running 1W from a Yaesu 857D.

Now have an Ultimate 3S and RD15HVF1 up and running 80 thru to 6m.
Is it me or is 12m the definition of an RF black spot in 2 weeks.

I'm sitting on 160 metres, trying WSPR 15 - but there seems to be no central logging system. If anyone is hearign me, please could they let me know?

And I will post anything I hear here.

Dear OM's,

I've just finished my 50W PA, so hopefully my signal will increase for ca. 12dB. So maybe it's enaugh for my first CW QSO's...

If you can read my whisper signal with a fair SNR please contact me by mail DL6II (at) darc (dot) de for a sked.

I got several questions concerning a curtain rail
acting as 'multiband' WSPR antenna.

Some people at my radioclub didn't believe me and
demanded a picture.

As promised, here is a picture of the WSPRing contraption.

See attachment.

After wspr with a raspberry pi I ordered a qrp-labs 3s version for wspr. Lets see how that works.

I've been decoding VK2KRR on 432 MHz today... 1018km @ 40dBm.


It never ceases to amaze me when I play with Qrp and antennas. A few years back, I happened across wiring from a well replacement, heavy three strand copper coated with some waxy stuff. My first though - a 160M loop !. I had never been on 160M. So, I spent a few days, unwound the three strands, and started out through my back yard, hanging the wire off trees. Back at the beginning, a piece of Plexiglas for support in a 35 ft tower, to twin lead, down to a 4:1 balun, and into the shack.
