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.

John K3KQV wrote this night a new ligne to the historical datas of the record distance. Well done with 100 mw !!

A few users have recently posted questions about timeout problems when reporting "spots" to the server.

I have been working a little on fixing some of the problems with WSPR-X lately. As part of that effort, I enabled some debugging statements. One of them saves the processing time returned by the server when (my) "spots" are reported. This is the time reports that it used to just store the "spot" info in it's database, the network transit time is NOT included. I thought it would be helpful to share that info here.

I love WSPR.

what can be done to make this a contestable mode?

I am ready willing and able to help move this along.


A new record for me 16Mm, heard by VK2XN in Australia. Are some exceptional atmospheric conditions going on?

I have been slowly convincing a FT690R that WSPR is a good idea.
Having a 40Hz droop on your single is embarrassing to say the least. Upgrading the regulators supplying the main PLL is slowly helping and now down to less than 20Hz frequency drift, with receiving stations starting to decode my transmissions. One regulator to go!

Looking through my 20m activity and spotted this...

Well done G7EVW

...finished yesterday my 500mW WSPR PA incl. a 30m harmonic filter.
Started yesterday evening for 24h and got surprised to get reports from 5000km to 18000km.
Fun, fun, fun...

see pics on

This is the second time now this happened, 1 spot, but 6020Km away.

Can somebody confirm this happened?

As so far it's just 2 times on different dates.

I find this mind blowing, 1mW and such a distance, AMAZING!!!

It's quite a big jump from the ~2000Km I normally do.

But did it really happen?? Not some prank of somebody.

New to WSPR and trying to get my FT-840 working but I cannot seem to get the settings correct.... probably cause radio is not one of the Yaesu's on the drop down.......

oh well.... I will keep trying !!

I publish these spots of the morning to mark the situation. A real surprise because this is my first ZL on 80m WSPR.
Thanks to Mike.

For several days, i have systematic an error msg when loading my spots to (see jpeg) and that every 10 minutes. Who has the same phenomenon? an idea of why??

Today while monitoring the 10m band I noticed diagonal lines across the WSPR display (see attached screen grab). Could this be aircraft scatter?

I am located in FN41 between Boston and New York city, so I see a fair amount of domestic and international flights close by.

Sometimes 160m propagation has curious effects. That night I received on 160m the signal of John (K3KQV) from 02:10z to 05:30z with a kind of double peak. The first one at 04:12z (snr-5) is atypical, the second one at 05:20z (snr-9) is the usual peak framed by the beginning the twilight (TS) and the sunrise (SR).
I also wonder about the real power of John. An snr of -5 with 1w is a record. Unfortunately I did not find any email address to contact him :-(
Good luck to all, season soon closed ...

Hi Folks:
I've seen this a couple times, and wonder if anyone else has.. At some point, The spectrum still scrolls, but shows nothing for hours, not even a base line, but the decoder is still decoding signals.. I pull the radio out of the mic jack on the computer, plug it back in, and the spectrum starts working.. That's all I have to do. Scratching my head.. de KB2MEN
