The Weak Signal Propagation Reporter Network is a group of amateur radio operators using K1JT's MEPT_JT digital mode to probe radio frequency propagation conditions using very low power (QRP/QRPp) transmissions. The software is open source, and the data collected are available to the public through this site.

Another good night on 160m showing some DX activity on top band. Below is a sorted listing of *unique* contacts and distances achieved last night on 160 Meter WSPR.

A big thank you to all who participated on WSPR last night and esp. the 160m ops.

After many years I'm once again dipping my toe. New challenges, new mistakes, old mistakes and hopefully plenty of enjoyment.

Today, I spotted VK8KMD in Alice Springs on 6m.

Also be spotted 5 times.
What is the mechanism of propagation?
TEP and Es simultaneously happened?

After five days without dx from North American stations, signals timidly returned last night on 160m: thanks to Mike (VA3MW/P).
By cons, the performance goes to W1FVB who gave me the chance to decode twice while his power was reduced to 0.5w.

73 to all, Patrick

Herm Island 2013 was great - anyone lucky enough to get gp0pkt on WSPR ? They ran a qrp
on 30 metres.

I have posted some audio grabs of the phone operation on 40 metres if anyones wants a listen
they are here: http://www.qrz.com/db/G0IER
under the map of my city
regards all g0ier brian Hull

I will be trying 160m tonight on a longwire antenna and 5w. Very interested to know how it works.

Hi everybody. I'm new to WSPR and am puzzled as to why it appears that nobody else heard a particular station recorded by myself this morning.

The log entry reads:

2013-10-02 09:36 O76OZG 14.097030 -31 1 NQ84 0.002 2E0SQM IO91up 4751 295

Can somebody please explain what has happened.

Kind regards, Ray 2E0SQM

No effect on propagation, so far.

Really sorry! The following spots were on 20m, not Top Band!

I've been very impressed by the high standard of the frequency reporting I'm seeing. Great job there folks!
Here's a good example (I transmitted on 14.097192 MHz, referenced to a GPS disciplined oscillator):

2013-09-30 21:06 G0LRD 14.097192 -19 0 JO02ac 1 W3CSW FM19kd 5876 288

Yes really active. This morning between 04:08z and 06:04z no less than 50 dx spots "across the pond" with an beautiful and constant propagation, clean traces without qsb or qrn.
10 stations have benefited from these conditions and of course there is still room for new entrants during this magical time of sunrise. So come on guys,...

By my side, 6 NA stations spotted with a new one K7EA (Richard), bringing my Challenge score to 8 since aug-24/2013.

NA Callsign listing (pwr): VA3MW/P(5w), W1FVB(1w), WB5WPA(5w), VE3SWS(5w), K4RCG(5w), K9PAW(1w), K9YWO(1w), K7EA(5w).

First time on WSPR and i have been heard by US, USSR, OZ and Malaysia on 5 watts.... how cool is that!

hello on test today 160m 5 w dipole 2x30m monoband
tnx fer report
