OK, so this WSPR thing has grabbed my attention again and I was wanting to see how or if my antenna and propagation is from N. Las Vegas the past few days. Since I like tinkering and have a simplistic set-up, some antennas, and an HF rig (TS-50 with intermittent receive audio problems) I tried to see if I could send out a signal. No interface, no computer (but using my phone iPhone 11 w/ WSPR Watch, and some headphones).

Station is Yaesu-ftdx1200- Just getting into Ham radio HF

Hi my name is Roy,
I live Thorne in the North of England about 10k north of the large town of Doncaster.
I've been a ham since 1995 but been around the airwaves since 1978 / 1979.
My present wspr setup is a Sotabeams WSPR Classic running 250mw, the usual antenna is a Super Antenna MP1.
I would like to respectfully request if you've come this far please send me a QSL card from your station, to which I will treasure and send a return asap. My details are on QRZ.com.

Freshly installed DX-EE antenna in my attic. Working amazing!

Today, I finally managed to get the Raspberry Pi 4 to communicate over RealVNC with my iPad and the Icom IC-7300.
The most difficult issue was getting the RealVNC to provide a desktop image to the iPad.
Most of the instructional YouTube videos and other instructional webpages assume that their audiences are reasonably well-versed in Linux.
I know virtually NOTHING about Linux.

Hello,

I operate in 20m (14.0956) and 40M (7.0386) SIMULTANEOUSLY.

I am running a simple Lenovo Thinkcentre Mini PC headless connected to an SDRPlay DUO. The SDRPlay DUO has the same antenna attached to both inputs ( 100' of 16GA wire hanging in the fence which is 6' tall) no baluns no nothing, the cable literally soldered to a coax with a PL in the other end.

New to the group. Thanks to ian VK5CZ for spurring me on with wspr..
Had an old Pi so gave it a try with a simple 40 meter filter. no amplifier..
Amazed to see some hits in the USA and Canida.
Tried 80 meters last night and not one hit.. Ha
Hope everyone is sticking to the rules and keeping safe.
Best
Ian

I have created a new box, containing WSPRlite and Three Band Compact Low Pass Filter Kit, both made by Soatabeams.
WSPRlite incorporates 30 and 20 m bands-
Filter Kit for 160, 80 and 40 m, selected by a switch.
This runs on my TC2M-antenna, when this is not used for QSO.
The TC2M-antenna was designed by Martin Ehrenfried G8JNJ. I built this antenna in 2015. For more information on this antenna see: https://issuu.com/radio-m05/docs/tc2m-reusenantenne

Hi Folks,

I was thinking about a new way of displaying data from several sources which is easy to use as well. Therefore I created the DJ2LS RFMap, which combines the data of WSPR, DXCLUSTER and PSKREPORTER on one map.

Actually there are nearly one million spots in the database for the last 24 hours which will be refreshed every 5 minutes.

Finally got a 10 GHz transverter and a small dish. The station will be moving to the NW side of Moore, Oklahoma. Any helpful information operating 10 GHz would be appreciated.

Hi All -

I swear there is some sort of odd sequence of changing bands, and having the selected band in the WSJTx app snap back to the previously selected band.... but can not figure out the click sequence to duplicate the issue. Or who knows, maybe I just suffered multiple brain aneurysms :O

In either case, I dumped a half hour or so worth of 20 M data into 160 M this AM - this is probably the second or third time this happened - sorry about that folks...
