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.

FT857 or FT897 on 30m into 40m Windom via ATU until I put up a dipole for 30m. Antenna is resonant on 40/20/10 if anyone wants a sked. email address on

I finally did some work on the map page. The map now displays stations which report status in the most recent hour but haven't heard anything or been heard. It will show their Tx percentage, frequency, and dBm (this information is reported by WSPR 1.0 in place of a spot upload each time slot in which nothing is decoded). So now we can have an idea of the activity on a band when propagation is poor.

Also, stations which report themselves as receive-only are flagged in red rather than blue.

During all this week I will have my beacon in 10 meters...

28.1246 Mhz... 10W & 30m LW...

150 ASL - 100 AGL

I hope that there are many reports and let's cross the Atlantic ocean...

I'm about as barebones as can be imagined.

Transceiver: Yaesu FT-817, typically running 0.5w
Antenna: 40m dipole, coax fed (yes, not optimal on 30m)
Software: Homebrew beaconing software, written and running on my MacBook

I'm writing up some of my experiments on my blog at

I've also begun to acquire the parts for a standalone beacon based on the 74HC240.

Radios: ICOM IC-746 HF/2 meter transceiver and Kenwood TM-700D 2 m./70 cm. transceiver
Antennas: MFJ-1798 2-80 meter vertical (used for WSPR) and Cushcraft MA5B minibeam on 30 foot tower for 10-20 meter DX. Also two Diamond gorund plane verticals for VHF/UHF work.
Computer: HP Pavilion 5568 running Windows XP and MS Explorer 7.
Geographical Information:
Elevation: 260 feet
Grid square: FN42fb

I have decided to stick to the one antenna my 160 Meters vertical for all bands. 160/80/40/30/20/17/15//12/10 Meter.

Wondering if anyone has played with WSPR in the ELF ranges? Seems like this would be a way to really accomplish the long awaited trans-atlantic QSO!

Just reporting that the Prop Map function seem to hang on IE 6 (yes, I should upgrade but I am can not due to other apps that will not work on IE7. Prop Map works fine on latest version of Firefox.

I must be doing something dumb. Just loaded the 1_r972 version and no decodes appear on the main screen yet everything else looks normal including decodes in all_MEPT.txt file. Any one else run into this issue?
