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.

Using a WsprLite for now set at 200 mw.

I set-up 2nd RX station(JG1EIQ-2) today.
To investigate SNR for both station, ANT signal is shared by 2 RXs with hybrid.
I will test ANT/ADC/RX in future.
I also would like to monitor 60m/160m.

Ted Jahn (K4YLX) brought over some "20M WSPR Pi Module" from TAPR https://www.tapr.org/kits.html along with his Raspberry Pi 1. We decided to start from scratch and install a new OS first. As I already had a copy of Raspbian (Wheezy) downloaded on my harddrive we installed it onto an SD card.

This is a really neat mode. Just tonight as I've gotten WSPR up and running I'm seeing who I'm hearing and seeing who's hearing me, within minutes! I'm having a lot of fun just like all the other neat ham stuff there is to do.

Hope everyone's having as much fun as I am!

April 2-9

Hi all

To celebrate the newly allocated US 630m and 2200m bands, QRP Labs are offering the 630m and 2200m versions of the Ultimate3S kit for the discounted price of $25 (normal price is $33.80 for the LF options and $33 for the HF/VHF versions). This offer is open to everyone globally, not just US amateurs. It will run through the whole of April 2017.

If you are looking for a true band hopping WSPR transmitter try out the new S/W for the Next Generation Beacons platform: http://rudius.net/oz2m/ngnb/dds_sw_multimode.htm Then you will be able to hop anywhere from 136 kHz to 1296 MHz. In this release 15 frequencies are possible but as the S/W source code is available too "any" number of frequencies may be possible.

Been having fun playing with the software for a few days now. Even got to New Zealand on just 2w output, which I think is as much proof of the pudding as one could ask for with these end connected OCFD type antennas from M0RZF:

Until I can repair my 400' doublet, I'm tuning a Triband 3 element on 40 meter WSPR.

Start 2150 UTC 26/3/17: for 5 days

I spent a pleasant morning yesterday using WSPR to compare a Chameleon P-Loop with an Alexloop.

Morning,

So Exercise Blue Ham is and RAF Air Cadet / Amateur Radio exercise on 5 MHz, setup really as a contest and designed to foster an interest in radio communications for the cadets.

This weekend, cadet stations will be operating through the shared 5 MHz spectrum and within the amateur segments.

All cadet stations will be using MRE*** callsigns and will be looking to make as many contacts as possible. Full details are here: www.alphacharlie.org.uk

I started RX only station on Low band.
So far I got signal from US/VK but no EU on 80m.

I will let the 5 watts traverse the world for day or so to see results.
