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.


2017 News:
The new Worldwide 60 meter band 5351.5 kHz to 5366.5 kHz, goes into effect after 1 January 2017. (not USA)

During the night I switched from a random longwire NE-SW, to a 95cm Magloop, or MLA.
It looks a bit sad drooping down around the support pole, so I must fix that.
And it is placed inside the shack at the moment with axis NNW-SSE. From 0030z to 0900z it was tuned to 30m, and from 0901z has been tuned for 40m. I mistakenly left the TXing for 40m off until just now.
At the first estimate signals, and noise, are a bit lower.

TNX for the confirmations to my previous query.

Finally running again here:
Raspberry Pi 2 with Raspbian and QRPi shield by HA7DCD
Wsprrypi by PE1NNZ
20dBm on 20m
After fiddling around trying to run wspr as a service the excellent page from ÖVSV helped me a lot.

Im getting out but not as far as I want. Will see what the day brings

Is this what shows on the front page?

just bought a Lenovo Ideapad 100, it works ok but had issues finding the right setting for the external microphone connection with the combo jack(4 rings) to have on the same connector HP & Mic.

You must persist to find the right settings if not you have noise of the room injected via the internal Mic of the Lenovo and impossible to set the right levels...

Just to say that at first you can think that the combo jack is not working at all.

Surely computers with standard HP & Mic(external) connections are easier to setup.

TODAY 31.12.16 at 10.00 UTC the Ballon STELLA4 gets in the Air.
Trying to break WSPR highest altitude record.
It is an 800g Latex ballon flying with helium.
The probe transmitts on 30m WSPR, 40m WSPR, 30m JT-9 and 2m CW.
An frequency list is in the pictures.
The transmitter is an modified ULTIMATE U3s.
Livetracking and Infos from my last STELLA missions on Hans Summers pages:
Would be nice to get some Reports!

My experimental WSPR system for 80m band - Intel Edison + STM32F373 (sound input, DDS control) + DDS (SI5351) + simple 80M receiver.

New record activity with 310 UNIQUE dx spots "across the pond" (previous 286 dxspots Dec10).
70 stations in the DX round (49EU/21NA)
20 NA stations heard in EU, 12 EU stations heard in NA.

Best EU Rx stations: GM4OAS(20NA), PA0LSB/RX1(14NA), PA3FYM(12NA), G8DYK(9NA), ON4LUC(9NA), SWLKQ40LS(9NA)
Best NA Rx Stations: K3LR(12EU), N2NT(9EU), W1IR(6EU), VE3CIQ(4EU), W8AC(4EU)
Score list is attached.

I am in the process of creating a web site showing my WSPR and QRSS MEPT. In the meantime I have uploaded my WSPR Sketch to GitHub.


here is a link

I hope this sharing proves of interest. I will advise when the web site has been created.


Been running the sotabeam WSPRlite for nearly a week now and very impressed with its 200mw only have one antenna up at the moment in a temp location as a move is pending, a 20m end fed by gwhip but seems to be working ok...
HNY 2017 to you all..

The Irish Radio Transmitters Society have just announced that Irish radio amateurs can use the WRC-15 band of 5.3515 MHz to 5.3665 MHz with immediate effect. No application is necessary and the power limit is 15 watts. This is very good news for anyone with an interest in the 60 metre band.

Hopefully we will see the first Irish stations with WSPR on 60M
