After "fiddling around" with some difficulties, I have it running now. Before XMAS my SDR-IQ RX arrived from the U.S. (RFSpace company). Using the VAC(Virtual Audio Cable) software I got the AF fed into WSPR and it is running very fine now. RXwise only of course.
Anyone else is using the SDR-IQ here ??

The 40m low power activity on the XMAS days were fantastic. I found it almost unbelievable, of what my little Softrock_RXTX6.1 is capable TXwise with the 450mW as well as RX wise. I have a high noise level from halogen light switching PSUs here otherwise receiving could be better. Despite my antenna - which is a full size dipole for 40m - is up only about 6m, my signal was heard down in VK7 and ZL. Thanks to all for participating to the activity.

I have running my Softrock 6.1 RXTX with PowerSDR40 and WSPR for about a month now and it works very fine and stable. For those who may be interested my setup is:
Antenna: 40m dipole low at about 7m above ground
Hardware: Softock RXTX Version 6.1 (80m/40m Version)
Computer: Pentium Core2Duo 5200 w. 2GB RAM
Soundcard: E-MU0202 at 96 kHz
Software: PowerSDR40 <-> VAC 1,2 || VCOM <-> WSPR

Hi all,
Finally I got my Softrock 6.2 (80m/40m) running for WSPR. I am using ROCKY feeding the VAC (Virtual Cable) feeding WSPR. I tried Winrad, but I have massive stability problems with it. One of the first stations received with the Softrock was VK6BN. Great stuff. Any others here using the Softrock ???

I found my TenTec RX320D to be a wonderful WSPR receiver. I have to set a slight offset of 27 Hz. No more drift seen after switching on than with the TS690s. It is a pity that it has no transmitter ...

I found WSPR 1.0 and WSJT7 with WSPR QSO mode today on Joe's (K1JT) site. I already downloaded them and installed both programs. So far they are running well.

So: Where to place WSPR QSO frequencies in the bands ?? We should *NOT* use the WSPR beacon frequencies !!!
I have no idea (for the moment) if appropriate 200 .. 400 Hz (Yes Hertz) segments above or below the WSPR frequencies are available ?!?

So comments please ...
