I've been in Ham Radio since the 1960s.
I was active on RTTY in the 1970s with a
microprocessor based bit banging terminal
using modified Sidereal Muicronet II hardware.

The unique tools provided by the WSPR system
have awakened my interest in HF propagation
and antenna issues. I finally put up a 130
foot Van Gordon dipole I bought some ten years ago,
and put my Dentron SuperTuner back together.

Now I understand why hitting Europe from the
Oregon Rainforest is so tricky - it's the
auroral oval that is in the way.

Started Ham Radio activities, during Electronics Engineering course in early seventies when worked about 40 + Countries in 160 meter band, using a building top dipole and converted HF aircraft radios.

At this time the commercial Rig availability was limited and used Bendix TA12, Marconi TX and Command Sets.

Went to USA several times and had the honour to be personnal friend of W1BB, Stewart Perry.

Had PT2FRU, PT2CW and "A" Class, PY2CW since 1979.

Operates mostly from a mobile shack installed in a Winnebago Motor Home.

By curiosity, I have noticed some spots ( their are not unique, one can search in the database ).

My first over night test of WSPR was extremely succcessful, read the full sotry in my blog on

I would like that WSPR can drive CAT- TRX at com 1 rs232 for

all known trancievers,
so then we could program the bandswitching,
on specific times,
the frequentie setting and the ptt(TX),the usb (mode).

So we can automate the whole process off prop.prediction



I set the DSP setting on the rig for HPF 1000Hz LPF 1800Hz. I will let it run and see if that does help on SNR ( I would think so ). Tonight I will try to narrow it a little bit more.

This weekend i did setup the station for all
bands RX and TX , pwr 5 watt ts870 and the antenne
for 3.5 7 10 14 18 24.8 28.4 is a ZS6BKW dipool
direction N/Z not ideal but it will do.

for 14 21 28 mhz there is a FB13 whith a rotor.

most off the time the ZS6BKW is connected.
we will see the results realtime.

Today is 10-31-09 and i have been working with WSPR and what a wonderfull program.Last night on 30m i seen calls from around the globe.I am using an FT-847 and folded dipole at 30ft,MFJ-929 tuner and power is 2.8w on 10.138.700

Today is my first day in this mode. A litlle power, but wonderful.


Installed WSPR last night, 10/28/2009, and let it run.

Found my first ever spot heard this morning - AB3DI on 80 meters.

Switched to 30...

Two more spots showed up before leaving for work. WA6MTZ and WA7KGX.

Tonight we transmit...

Soon we raise the antenna...

Well OM , the wspr rx system is working,

TX also but for a moment there is audio
for the trx usb ,but thare is no carrier

i am investigating why.


I have built a stepper motor USB controller ready for a magnetic loop, but have yet to build the actual loop.

Since around 1 year I use WSJT for QSOs in meteorscatter (on VHF) and I am still surprised, what is possible with this fantastic software. Now I started to use MEPT_JT on shortwave. I am really fascinated what is possible with low power and digital modulation on the short wave. My antenna setup here is not really good, only a trap dipole around 6-7m high in a 90 degree mounting position. I'll try to be QRV 24/7, so my transmissions from Southern Germany are available for anybody out there.

In southern Spain until the end of December
