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.

Well I have been working on a Bitx40 TRX for around 2 months now on and off. Well mostly off to be honest.
When I got it,it would not transmit. Two faults I found. One was my doing as I didn't understand that the PA had a separate power supply rail but the second one was a poor solder joint on the bias pot. So soon had it working but only 2 watts and not as stated 7 watts.

Currently running only 5mw on 40m and am amazed at how far away the signals are being received.
The antenna is an MFJ magnetic loop at just 2 metres above ground level. SotaBeams WSPRLite is the moving force (or should I say "whisper"?).
I will keep on 40m for a day or so longer and then see what happens on 20m.

That is the "advice" given to me by older "wiser" UK Radio Amateurs. It's all ground-wave - no good for DX during a sun-spot minimum, they say. At a local Amateur Radio club, the members turned their nose-up at a suggestion of a local 10 metre net. "It will not work, people are too far apart, better off to use VHF", they complained. And therein seems to lie a pathological dismissal, and almost hatred, of 28MHz in the UK. WSPR has proven them very, very, wrong!


I am building Ultimate 3S kit and testing it along the way. Some pictures of the build

In the maritime world, AIS is used to track vessels. This is the first time that WSPR is being used to track a vessel as it transits Canada from east to west via the Northwest Passage in 150 days to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. We managed to create a "confederation" without a civil war or overthrowing the Crown (we are so polite, eh). The Queen of England is also the Queen of Canada. AIS is very similar to APRS and has VHF and satellite components. You can track the Polar Prince using marine AIS as well as WSPR.

Started new antennatest yesterday to investigate the difference on horisontal and vertical dipoles on 14 MHz .

So far the vertical might have a small advance.

OZ1BPZ is using the vertical and 5P1CC is on the horisontal.

Sorry, all spots from PA7MDJ between 2017/06/04 2230 UTC and 2017/06/05 0012 UTC have the wrong band reported. The band reported is 20m, it should have been 40m.

Sri, all spots oz/dl4vm from 30/05/2017 16:04 utc to 04/06/2017 4:44 utc had the wrong locator.

Just started with WSPR using a WSPRlite running 200mw on 14Mhz from Scotland. I'm pretty much amazed at the range that is achievable running this tiny box and less power than a cellphone. First station in the USA has appeared in the log overnight.

Dear friends! Got the first in my life QSL card from swl13562. For 1 year of hobby in the WSPR theme was much, but it was a very pleasant surprise in the envelope! Many thanks to Ruud NL13562. 73 !!!

Hi all

As others mentioned - the Canadian C3 expedition celebrating 150 years of Canada with 150 day voyage through the famous North passage, started from Toronto yesterday evening. Onboard is a WSPR transmitter donated by QRP Labs consisting of:

Just getting interested in WSPR, trying to get some sort of txrx system going.

Follow the WSPR Beacon from CG3EXP on the C3 Expedition Vessel leaving Toronto on the Great Lakes today. The QRP Labs Ultimate 3 transmitter installed on the Icebreaker Research Vessel "Polar Prince" will be transmitting on the 20, 30 and 40 bands. The Canada C3 is a signature Project for Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation this year. The Expedition is a 150 day voyage from Toronto, up the St.
