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.

I have been experiencing these failures at an increasing rate as the number of spots has increased over the years. It seems that the server is overwhelmed during the first 20 - 30 seconds after each 2 minute period ends. There are seldom any failures between 00:00 and 08:00 UTC when the volume decreases.

I wonder if there is a way to configure WSPR software to wait for a number of seconds before uploading received spots to the server to spread the load out over a longer period? I am running WSPR 2.21. Uploading manually is an alternative, but not very timely.

hi all im new to this so please be patient

Just recently we seem to have a plague of stations who transmit on
each two minute interval, especially here in europe.

Whilst I **fully understand** if anyone is testing out the drift
characteristics of their rigs by using 2 minute frames for a few days,
I cannot understand the stupidity of doing so for weeks on end, or months !

What if a local station to theses people wanted to do some listening
on the same frequency.

Such stupidity is nothing more than selfish to their fellow amateurs.

I wish they would grow up.

Here is the current list for GPS reference locked 144 MHz WSPR stations on the Pacific coast of North America
144.490460 KC6KGE DM05gd - Taft, CA
144.490470 KI6STW CM97bk - Milpitas, CA
144.490480 WA6M CM88in - Timber Cove, CA
144.490490 K6PZB CM88nk - Graton, CA
144.490500 N6GN CM88ok - Santa Rosa, CA
144.490510 KP4MD CM98iq - Citrus Heights, CA
144.490520 WW6D CM88pl - Santa Rosa, CA

Detailed listing at http://www.qsl.net/kp4md/144_mhz_wspr.htm#stations

Currently running a Hans Summers Ultimate 2 Kit equipped with a ublox GPS and active antenna for time/loc set. My original Ultimate kit, built for 30m, is now in circulation amongst local ham friends to let them dip their toes in the QRSS and WSPR oceans. It now looks like I'll be adding a third Ultimate kit to the stockpile -- Hans tells me the next version is coming soon, which will include something on my wishlist -- a backlit LCD display, making it easier to see in my dark, damp, spider-infested corner of the basement ('shack').

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.

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

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
