A plea / proposal from other Band Users (QRP Graphical Modes)

Please remember that WSPR is a ...EDIT Weak signal... ( DELETE QRP)... Mode. and has allocated frequency slots for everyone's advantage.

Edited 3 December 2008 for the purists. Some of us have brains that think of QRP at the RX end too. Yes and I once spoke of adding an extra Bit of Data when really it should have been a Unit, am I not awful?

There are problems on both sides of the Atlantic with relatively QRO WSPR signals in the QRP QRSS slot.

The following from one of the International Grabber Network Stations says it all.

For the Grabber compendiums mentioned try:-

A proposal.. although a little too late now I think.

With the ever increasing QRO IE 500mW and up WSPR signals (most seem to be
5W!! or more in the EU) on 30m, what I would like to see is the section from
10140.100-200 to be ***QRP something like a max of 200mW or maybe less***
above 10.140,200 they can run what they like.

The reason being it just wrecks grabbing the few graphical stations who are
still QRV between 10.140.0-100.
Even with my very very narrow CW Xtal filters and DSP599++ filter it is, most
of the time hopeless and weekends it is a waste of time grabbing during the
day.. Just have to look at the grabbers on the compendium sites... maybe
that's why a lot are QRT ??

I am also saddened to see even more EU WSPR signals (In OUR section) between
10.140.000-100, this morning being a classic case with one being on ~10140.000
another on 085 and one on ~110 who has peaked S6!!

Maybe someone could be FWD'd to the relevant WSPR sites/groups..
