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.

My latest aerial has been a vertical for 40 mtrs .
This 33 ft long with 30 radials laid on the ground not buried and a 5 ft copper ground rod. The vertical is mounted 2 feet off the ground.
Performance on WSPR has been very good with reports from VK & N2 4X and ZR.
No loading or tuning required and the SWR is 1.7.1 and the resistance is 37 ohms so it looks about right.

Tell N9WKW he's reporting on the wrong band!

I use a Kenwood TS-590S and don't see it in the WSPR v2.0 r1714 software CAT menu. Does anyone know if the Kenwood TS-2000? CAT selection will work?

Merry Christmas All.Thanks...

My daughters tell me that I was very nice throughout the year. So my request to Santa Claus is simple, I want to spot Leigh (VK2KRR) in 160m soon ... HI!!! I do not know but this season it does not happen ...
Merry Christmas to all,

On October 28 I had the chance to spot W1CK from west coast. Steve worked at this time with 5w. It was already a first one for me. This morning at sunrise, the conditions were great for a new hop between San Diego (West Coast) and Europe. I was not alone to take advantage of these conditions:

Finally realized that I could use the XVTX/C port on my FLEX-1500 to TX at 1 mW. Been running it all afternoon and evening on 30M and plan to run it all night, at least. Will try other bands later when the contest is over. Using a G5RV at 45ft. WSPR-X TX set at 50%. Thanks to the spotters below as they are the first to hear me at reference power!

Today, I've got 69spots on 6m WSPR from VK and ZL.
It was very lucky that the condition lasted over 3hours.
Thank you very much.


Completed the Ultimate 3 kit build. Everything seems to be working just fine. Love the new backlit LCD. Need to check freq and calibrate. Running WSPR now on indoor dipole on 28126150 but no spots. Must be off a bit. Will investigate.

First foray into digital modes and thought I'd try WSPR following a demo at our radio club.

Set up a Yaesu 817 with a signalink USB and running 5W into a Miracle Whip.

Wow, what results I'm getting from the South Coast of the UK on 30m.

I've decoded 143 LZ1OI, and 47 EA5DOM. I can see another trace at 210 ish, just outside the band, so I'll try tuning 20 Hz higher to see if I can decode it. My calibration may be a bit out?

That brought another station into the band, but no decode. I can see another station futher up. I see no stations in the lower 50 Hz of the band. I'll tune up another 40Hz, so dial freq 28.124,66 Mhz now 12:31 UTZ.

I active daily in 10.138.7 khz. 24h. The power is 5 w. and the antenna is a vertical line on a fishing pole 6 meters long.. with a remote automatic tuner.
Daily reporting DX stations from Asia. Oceania. Americas and European friends. Especially congratulate YV4GJN, LA9JO, 4X1RF, W3HH, WD6DOD, EA6FG, and many others.. .. always well heard here in Spain.
Confirm any report via eqsl. bureau or direct. My info:
Greetings to all. Merry Christmas.! Andreu T. 73 EA5WO


Yesterday the propagation was clearly better than the weeks before and many european stations were listening.
I hope tonight will be as good, and reports arriving from Australia seem to confirm this.

Yan - XV4Y.
Yannick DEVOS - XV4Y

Generally, propagation conditions in 160m wspr between NA and EU are erratic. Similarly, an NA signal can be heard strongly somewhere in Europe and 500km away from there the signal is zero. Well, last night and around EU sunrise, Ian (N9XG) showed us something very different. Its 5w were heard continuously from 03:36z until 07:16z in a wide band from Goteborg (Sweden) to Valencia (Spain) by 10 European stations: The lucky ones are (fm north to South): SM6WZI, OZ7IT, G8DYK, PA0O, PE1MPX, GW0OAJ, G4BOO, DK6UG, F59706, EA5ZL. Congratulations to Ian (N9XG) for this wonderful session.

I checked into the Northern California 432 SSB Net on 432.100 MHz at 1900 PST on Sunday night and also listened carefully as 1 kW net control station KG6HXI in Wilton CA swung her large Yagi antenna calling for check ins around the compass points. I heard some weak SSB signals at or below the noise level from the north and south SF bay area. This suggests that 432 MHz WSPR contacts are possible from Sacramento to those areas.
