starting wspr

I just started with the WSPR technique. My computer input was connected with the output of my FT- 450 Yaesu transceiver, using an audio cable. I did´t have the microphone socket for the transceiver, for that reason I simply connected the output of the computer to my station loudspeaker and brought it near to the microphone. After turning on the Vox, the set up worked perfectly and surprisingly I got down to a reception SNR of 28 db at a distance of 8821 km. Not more than 20 min work! The antenna was a magnetic loop on my balcony. I find the new technique very fascinating. The objective SNR parameter allows now to optimize my antenna set up.
