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.

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?


Here is the current list and what freq they are set to TX on -

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.

A first time for me on this band!

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:

homemade 20m dipole up 30 feet working East West

You could almost say this is a wall of fame from my RX 20m homemade dipole @30 feet working East West, just whoever I received over say, a 24 hour period...
7th To 8th Oct 2013

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):

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

I will be running my WSPR standalone beacon with less than 1W to an OCF-Dipole for at least the next 7 nights.
Already received reports from VK6XT and NH7SR so it is working ok...

Yan - XV4Y.

My name is John and the QTH is Mount Hope in Ontario. The TX is a WSP kit buildas a club project at the PARC in Brampton. It's output power is 100mW and the antenna is a 30m dipole on a 45 degree in NNE direction.

Other equipment
Flex F5000 tranceiver 100W
Flex F1500 tranceiver 5W
Beam TH11DX and CL33

Despite average conditions 160m is currently attractive in EU. This morning around 38 stations on air (tx-rx).
25 dx Spots "across the pond" during greyline from K9PAW, K9YWO, VA3MW/p, VE3SWS, G8HUH, F6CNI, G3ZJG, F59706.
Congrats to John (G3ZJG) for "two-way" contacts with VE3SWS and VA3MW/P- Rarely seen at this time frame.
By my side, I hope to hear and decode Laurence (KL7L), recent WSPRer but yet very active.
One word to say "AGAIN,.."
73, Patrick

Back in July I posted an entry to advise that the Martello Tower Group are running a WSPR beacon on 30m. We've received a lot of reports and initial indications are that it's a useful beacon to have online.

As of the 17th September we are also running WSPR on 10m using 300mW to a 5/8 vertical on top of the Martello Tower.

Hopefully this beacon will help with propagation testing on 10m and the fact that it's an 'always on' signal may persuade a few extra people to switch to 10m for a while to look for it.

This may, or may not, be of interest!
