For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere Summer is coming. Got a powerful PC on all day? Or an old XP machine wondering what you are going to do with it? May I suggest getting a RTL dongle (with TCXO) and setting up a 6 meter WSPR receiver. The dongle can be had for ~$25 and can run on that PC you have on already. Any antenna will work. Obviously a long yagi pointed to W6 would be ideal,but most anything will work when the band is open. Can be set up fairly easy just IM or email me if you need help setting it up. Northern EU and Asian stations Summer will be here before you know it.

Looking for some JA stations to Sked WSPR on 6 meters this weekend. I know several have exchanged decodes with VK stations, time for NA... Heck I'm feeling greedy, even 2 meters maybe. I've exchanged decodes with VK and ZL on 50 Mhz WSPR. I have 50 Mhz RX on 24 X 7 usally pointing to VK, but will turn my beam by request. Right now I'm pointed at HI for this duct that is open.
