WSPR - 24 Aug

Digimode happeningsPosted by Sean Gilbert Tue, August 24, 2010 17:44:11

I decided to have a WSPR session this afternoon, mainly to test the station (making sure that all the various software programs work now that I am using a different computer - getting them all to co-operate has been quite difficult).


The table shows unique stations (i.e. no duplicates), and the results are quite interesting:


Best DX is 9520km (Japan), not bad as I am only running 5 watts.


Other notable stations that heard my signals were from both the East and West Coasts of the USA, Manitoba in Canada, India and Venezuela.

The map shows WSPR signals both TX and RX heard on 20m this afternoon.





I am going to leave WSPR running all evening, probably on 20m but I may change to 30 or 40m later on if conditions look promising on the lower bands (there have been a lot of QRN/static crashes on the low bands over the past few days, making reception a bit hit and miss).
