Hi,

after my PA0RDT died (RIP) I put the 12m wire with DIY unun on my good ole Yaesu FRG-100. With this piece of wire I got a new record of distance:

Hi,

on http://www.qth.at/de8msh/wsprcalls you can see my WSPR loggings. It uses mySQL, PHP and Google Maps API to build a map with all received Stations. Like WSPR.net. But for long term. Not only 24 hours...

Have fun...

Hello,

I just released wsprspots2kml convert for you guys at wspr net community. With this tool you can convert wsprspots.csv to kml format. The kml format can be loaded with Google Earth instead of Google Maps.

Please download at http://de8msh.blogspot.com/

Note:

*** One problem is that there are doubled (or more) entries in kml file. I'll fix it as soon as possilbe.
*** convert_win_tx.exe for send amateurs only (SWL version coming in a few days ;)
*** LX version coming soon.

This is my little configuration for WSPR mode receiption: YAESU FRG-100 and homebrewed 70cm long active rod antenna in middle of the house in basement floor.
