As the September Equinox is on the 22nd, it might be a good idea to get the yagis facing those on the other side of the equator. Probably a slim chance, but you never know with WSPR.
I'll have my yagi beaming in the European direction during my afternoons at least over the coming week.

Remember to check into the 50 MHz WSPR Group page on Facebook and let us know what your up to on 6m WSPR.

Currently experimenting and comparing a 1/4 wave 40 mtr. fishing pole vertical with two tuned radials abt. 60cm off the ground against the usual full wave 40 mtr. horizontal sloping loop antenna at 8 mtrs high.

This is my first blog.

Just put in a new desktop computer. Replaced two OLD laptops that ran my shack and combined to one desktop type computer (not new). Testing everything out. WSPR and FT8 do not seem to be as quick/sharp as before so I may have a setting off or something. Will keep working it.

Hi...
My name is Bo and my QTH is Saxtorp, Sweden. My rig is Yaesu FTDX-1200 and Drake B-Line. Antennas is Cushcraft R5, T2FD, Chameleon Tactical CHA TD LITE.

I have been active with WSPR for six weeks now. It started with my YAESU FT-900 in QRP mode at 1 watt.
Now I'm doing new tests with the Raspberry Pi at 16 dBm and an SI5351 generator at 13 dBm.
I enjoy everything very much.
Please have a look at my website: dk3bi.de

W5KUB-18 has circled the globe once and has passed through the International Dateline which seems to have wind related delays traveling North of Midway Island. The whirlwinds seem to keep the balloon between Midway Island and Hawaii. However, the whirls seem to be pushing the balloon beyond Hawaii this leg. It will be interesting if we will make California by day 35. de WZ1L
