My shack like most peoples I guess, is always in a temporary state.
My new purchase is an 2003 Elecraft K2 which lends itself well to Wspr. Probably the most frequency stable rig I have owned. The uBitx/TS120S hybrid is now on the shelf unused and the FT757 GX II is the back up rig now connected up and still used most days.
I now have a dedicated 30 metre dipole, so I have an antenna for every HF band plus 160 metres.

Icom 7300, attic dipole - transmit, amplified loop - receive

МАЯК Р=1ват. (WSPR-2) Маяк сделан на ARDUINO -NANO и запрограммирован на основе информации с сайта http://us3mw.000webhostapp.com/?page_id=848 прошивка для моего позывного сделана US3MW. Мощность увеличина до 1вата и все диапазоны с автоматическим переходом на каждый диапазон по кругу. можно отключить любой диапазон .Работает на длинный провод 65метрров.

There's a bit of remodeling and reorganization going on, and I need to relocate the Raspberry Pi and co-ax that runs the beacon. Will be QRT today. Might off be a day.
Carry on,
Andy

PS. Back on line, and with 70 feet less co-ax, too. Still, a hamster could generate more than 10 milliwatts, but it's amazing what WSPR can do.

Ok, finally built the club project kit. First tried an untuned long wire. Currently using my dipole so will leave it running over night.

I think got call sign word set. What equipment do I need to Hook to my computer. So I can get going?
Or do I have the wrong settings.?

I am in the process of seting up my station as well as QRZ and eQSL accounts. I am absorbed in various experiments. Recently was climbing trees with my antennas.
Still waiting for SignaLink USB and some cables. So far my phone squeaks into microphone of Yaesu FT-818. The reception is on other bands with a separate antennas and SDRplay connected to the computer.
At the rural location of my station there is extremelly weak internet connection, hence some actions must wait. Everybody who is waiting for eqsl please forgive. I will send it a bit later.

...works now fine. The trick: add your user to the group "dialout". Antenna is still the selfmade "Springy" indoor antenna as mentioned before...

We are very excited to announce the RFzero - a multipurpose Arduino RF platform that can do WSPR from 100 kHz to 1 GHz in a cost effective way and at the same time with a responsible RF spectrum and stability performance.

For more information please visit http://rfzero.net

You can use one of the dozen example programs or tweak them to fit your specific need for WSPR but also for CW, FT8, JT9 or PI4. Soon we will also have an example program for a QO-100 dual LO solution.

Now running DX Commander. Still working on adding 17M element and need to tune up 20 meters. 40, 15 and 30 are running well.

I built an endfeeded halfwave mono-band indoor antenna by uing a childrens toy from the 70ths: springy, the stair walking spring (picture). TRX is a qcx kit from Hans G0UPL, 5W. Got Iceland and Gran Canaria tonight :-D

Hope to see you, 73 de Tommes DD1TOM

we have some standard filters that are available on WSPRnet.org database spot query function such as:

- Band
* dropdown fields = LF, MF, 160m, 80m, 60m, 40m, 30m, 20m, 17m, 15m, 12m, 10m, 6m, 4m, 2m, 70cm, 23cm

- Count
* input field integer values from 1 to 1000

- Call
* input field alphanumeric

- Reporter
* input field alphanumeric

- In Last
* dropdown fields = Hour, 12 Hours, 24 Hours, Week, Two Weeks
