You may have noticed that a few of us have been playing with a version of WSPR that does automatic "frequency hopping" from band to band. For this we owe a big vote of thanks to Sivan Toledo, 4X6IZ, who wrote most of the initial frequency-hoppping code.
If you would like to try WSPR with frequency hopping, a beta-release of WSPR 2.20 is now available at
Select "Frequency Hopping" on the Seup menu, and you'll get a screen allowing you to select any desired mix of bands and Tx fractions. Then check "Frequency Hop" in the main window, and WSPR will start its normal 2-minute sequences, switching bands randomly after each one.
Depending on your station and antenna setup, you might need to accomplish other switching besides re-tuning your radio. To make this possible in an automated way, whenever WSPR executes a successful band-change command to a CAT-controlled radio, it looks for a file named "user_hardware.bat", "user_hardware.exe", or "user_hardware" in the working directory. If one of these is found, WSPR tries to execute the command
where nnn is the band-designation wavelength in meters.
You will need to write your own program, script, or batch file to do the necessary switching at your station. I wrote a very simple Python program for this purpose. One of my antennas is an "all band" dipole fed with open-wire line through an automatic antenna tuner. Others include a 160m vertical and a tri-band trap dipole. The antennas are selected automatically, by band; and when a transmission on a new band starts on the all-band dipole, the tuner adjusts itself during the first few seconds of the transmission.
