final results are listed down. intresting remark "best ear" is DK5AI with 4.47Km/µW 4.4Mi Km/W. If I take into acount that his SNR is -21dB and the best could be -29dB He can theoreticly spot me with 16µW
Same excercise PA0HCK could recieve me in theory with 13µW finally ON7AN with 10µW.

I had spots from PA0HCK with 1mW at SNR -10 dB and switched to 100µwatt

We have to invent new parameter µ watts /km and taking SNR into account.
Merry Christmas to all

I started with WSPR the first time today. Using WSPR in a virtual windows machine running on a mac.
Will use my 3 el. for 40m beaming 300 deg (W) with 10 W starting 17:05 UTC Dec. 23rd for a few hours.

For me WSPR is an exciting new approach to study shortwave propagation.
Thanks for this new facet of ham radio to K1JT.

By the way, I just received VE6AXL on 40 m 17:14 UTC great!

40m every 10min 80m every 30 min using si-570 beacon PE1NNZ/QRP2000 with attenuator
I will try tio find out their equipment.

My first dip into wspr. usually contribute to propnet.org. will try switching to activity frequency later tonight.

Thanks to Vlad, UA6JD, a Russian translation of the WSPR 2.0 User's Guide is now available. A link has been placed on the WSJT/WSPR web site:

http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/wspr.html

We now have translations of the WSPR 2.0 User's Guide in French, (Brazilian) Portuguese, and Russian. Translations into other languages would be very welcome; if you are interested in doing this and would like a copy of the original MS Word file in English, please let me know.

Well here in the Northwest corner of England we are experiencing probably the first spell of very snowy weather since (by my reckoning anyway) 1996.

I think we have about seven inches (18cm) of level snow, and thankfully there hasn't been any wind to whip it up into deep drifts.

No big deal. However ... Not good for loft-mounted antennae!

There appears to be about 3 to 4 inches of snow lying on my roof.

I have documented my most recent project that allows a portable SSB QRP transceiver to transmit WSPR beacons from a portable location without a computer.

The project consists of a simple audio oscillator controlled by a Microchip 16F628 PIC that has the following capabilities:

- Internal timing or NMEA GPS timing for UTC synchronization of WSPR transmissions.
- RS232 input of the WSPR message.
- Line or microphone output.
- Symbol data output available to modulate a VXCO
- Low power consumption allowing battery operation

All the rage here are "LED" Christmas lights with "wall wart" power supplies with some fancy electronics to produce an amazing variety of light switching sequences.

In my neighbourhood "Light Wars" broke out earlier in the Christmas season - everyone seemingly trying to outdo everyone else with the brilliance of their festive displays.

Outdoor arrays seem to make pretty reasonable TX antennae.

Not good news for the poor QRPp WhiSPeRer :( I reckon my noise floor has risen by 3 to 6dB!

Hey Ho, c'est la vie!

First of all, I wanted to report that the site changes made over the last month have helped stability considerably. Things seem to be running much more smoothly, resulting in far fewer load spikes (which were causing timeouts when posting spots as well as viewing pages).

I will be on holiday from Saturday the 17th through the 31st, and I will be pretty far out of touch for most of time. I don't anticipate any problems while I'm gone.

I want to thank Trevor G0KTN and Stu K6TU (ex N6TTO) who have been helping with the site administration. Those two are the best points of contact for site issues while I'm gone. Stu has also offered to help with some future site enhancements. We've talked about a bunch of things we both would like to see done, and it will be great to have some help on the programming side.

I see Pavel, CO6WT (below), also just offered to help with some of the analytics, which is also something Stu and I have talked about. Thanks, Pavel, though I probably won't have time to work with you too much until January.

Folks I have been working with php for some years now, and reading old blog posts and thinking a little I can make charts or graphics for wspnet site...

Lets say a interface that let me pick another call and a time range (predefined, say 24 hours, a week a month a year) and plot in a graph for statistical & propagation means...

I only need a sample of the REAL wspr database table (structure and some data) for program the necessary pages and integration with drupal, and in this old/new year holidays I can push it to almost end... (if beers and XYL let me do so...)

Hello folks, as you may noticed, CO7WT (me) is on the air with async logs uploads, so, not only check online/real data, you may review data of 24 hours reports, as I upload the logs of the local night in the post hours; that's because I have internet connectivity only on my work place.

Locator FL11BJ, TRX FT-80C, Power 10W

I had RX some interesting stations some VK, some PY2 some JQ2 and USA and Europe on regular basis... activity mainly on 30m night time (aprox 0300Z to 1200Z)

Sorry for my English. 73.
