climbing the leader board

WSPRnet is a great place to see and study the results of changes in your set up. Everything from connectors to antennas to procedures all influence our ability to get out and to hear. I track my progress at "getting better" using 2 way spot reports. I'm at the top of my game now. As a movie character said "I've reached the top and had to stop, and that's whats bothering me!" But I'm not bothered. I'm thrilled. I've looked at the folks in positions 1 to 4, and they are all really advanced sophisticated professionals with fantastic rigs, antennas, computers, and the like. I'm using a $120 kit radio (uBITX), a $38 computer (AtomicPi), and a DIY antenna over the house. So I'm thrilled at the setup's performance.
