Hi All,

N3IZN and W6SZ have been running WSPR tests during a couple of weeks.

Here is one day of reports:

Hi ALL,

N3IZN and W6SZ have been running WSPR transmissions on 10 GHz ( 3 cm )
now for some time.
We hope a new channel could be added in order to use all features of
the WSPRnet.

A this moment we are using 10368.405 MHz as dial setting ( this is temporary arrangement )

Exchanged reports can be viewed by selecting either "N3IZN" or "W6SZ" as call and reporter.

73 Rein W6SZ

On Dec.12, 2011 K6HLH and W6SZ, both members of the San Bernardino Microwave Society ( SBMS ) made their first WSPR
exchanges on 10368.305 MHz ( 3 cm ) The equipment consisted out of normal type narrow band transceivers as being used
in present day microwave amateur radio.

Computers were time synchronized by GPS. K6HLZ uses a GPS disciplined 10 MHz source, W6SZ has a double oven 10 MHz source as
frequency determining element. K6HLH worked from his home QTH, W6SZ worked from a field location.

Hello All,

This subject might have been discussed before but I like to bring it up once more.

The present WSPRnet program has capabilities to plot its data versus time, such as the number of receive reports.

The WSPRnet database contains data that could be used for propagation plots for a particular station to and from

other participating stations and well in semi real time.

Is it possible to add the ability to plot the received signal reports ( in dB ) over lets say a 24 hour UTC
day between 2 or even more than 2 stations.

Google Prop Map on WSPR net provides an idea who is or has been reporting, in particular when one is using the magnification feature of
the Prop Map.

Of course reporting is by no means the same as receiving!

This indicates another reason for a positive indication of who is in the
receive mode and is participating as a reporting station.

Checking in and out to some sort of list or roster would help here.

When starting up WSPR, the program could send a signal to a central
point:
Station is in receive mode AND download mode for frequency
