Automatic band switching
PDF icon WSPR winter time slots.pdf35.18 KB

Hi All,

With help from Ken G3JKF, I have now got automatic scheduled band switching working.

This uses Autoit scripts in conjunction with WSPR.

Although this is still in its early stages, and requires quite a lot of fine tuning, it is running and providing worthwhile results.

The present schedule is based on 20 minute time slots, with a 30 or 50% TX / RX ratio. I have tried to get a reasonable balance between day and night time use of the HF and LF bands. With particular emphasis on 10 & 6m during the day, and 160 & 80m at night.

My current transmit schedule is attached as a PDF document.

Any suggested modifications to the schedule to improve band coverage would also be considered.
