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.

I'm going to leave my FT817 on receive on 7.0386 all night. Band sounds very lively. Ant = short longwire in the loft. 72/73 Chris.

Using a newly installed off center fed dipole for my FT 817 WSPR setup. Feed point only 20 feet above ground, but is being heard at one watt output. It will be interesting to see how it fares compared to my tried and true R7 vertical.

Tried 28 MHz WSPR this morning but no signals copied at all.

Just want to inform anyone interested in 6m WSPR that Gary VK8AW is on air now and planning to be on air most days now.
Gary is now up north in Darwin, close up to the equatorial areas.
He is currently running 20W @ 20% but im not sure of his antenna at this stage.
I hope that some people can have a look for his signals, it could be quite interesting to see what happens.

Just for all the 160m peoples info, you may have noticed Ive not been on 160m past few nights, ive not abandoned the band, but have removed parts of the Beverage antenna system as Im completely re-building it.
It was originally only set up in a temporary state just for testing purposes to see if it would work, and it seems to go OK, even though it has been set up quite poorly which would give it low efficiency.

I am ready for listening Europeans stations on LF and MF (2200 and 600 metres bands). Now the static noise on theses bands is decreasing, sure it is not so good as during winter, but I think that it is not so bad actually. I am only receiving here, but if you want to test your transmitter on LF or MF, I be OK and try to listen your transmission.

You can inform me on my adress mail, see it on QRZ.

At last a complete shack rebuild, starting in Oct 2011. All stuff in one place that will be something he he.


One small change: members can now post to the group by sending an email to the following address:

Wow, first time trying WSPR and my signal was heard in Australia and New Zeeland.

All the way from California on a mobile HF antenna mounted to the railing of my 2nd floor town-home patio.

Seems to be some awfully big ears out there!

Finally got my Diamond HV-7A up on the patio, and SignaLink USB working.

We'll see if any other station can hear my signal.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks to Jim JG1KGS, a few of the stations down here in VK have been lucky to hear and be heard by him on 28 MHz WSPR this week on the TEP paths. A few very strong signals on the 28 MHz band into the +10dB area with only low power.

I have set up a page on my website to try and monitor the TEP openings from 28 - 50 - 144 MHz.

Will try and keep track of the best times.

I put together a simple WSPR monitor script in PowerShell (PowerShell is part of Windows 7) so I could watch for activity during a recent test. If you wish to try it out as is no warranty I have it on my web site see "Simple WSPR Monitor".

Tonight 07 Aug 2011:
Using 5w to an 8ft whip base-loaded.
Simulating mobile setup.

I am looking for the "ideal" WSPR QRP transceiver. I think -- for me anyway -- it would be 5 watts or less output, with the ability to calibrate/stabilize its frequency from my GPS-DO (10 MHz). A SoftRock TX-RX would almost fill the bill except for the external reference oscillator input. It looks really attractive due to built-in support from this excellent WSPR software. I would try a SoftRock transceiver but I can't find one anywhere for sale or trade.

My SDR-IQ (as described in a previous post) is my "ideal" receive-only setup for WSPR.

After a few days trying, managed G to VK on 40 Meters with 100mW, again with a K3.

-28dB so only just.

I would now try 80M next but am sure my antenna's rubbish on this band.

Now that I am semi-retired, I have time to do a lot of things that I always wanted to do but was too "busy." This new antenna has taken me a couple of months to complete but I have really enjoyed building it and now using it on 30 meters. It is mounted on a five-foot galvanized pipe that is set in about 100 pounds of concrete - so I don't expect it to blow away in spite of the storms we have sometimes here in Wayne County, Illinois.

Here is the whole description:


my Genesis g3020 is on the air and working well thats thanks to rob M0TOY for finding the main problem a blown transitor. I am very impressed with sdr I still have a couple of problems to sort out low output power on 20 meters only two watts is the main one.




That's a nice surprise! Using 5watts from a Kenwood ts 2000 to an OCF for 40 metres oriented WSW - ENE.

Hi all,

DF0GZ, make Test's on LF this Weekend Evening Sa to Su.

Beacon in QRSS3 and WSPR will Test Sporadic.

Receiving Reports to DG3MDE at Web De.

We Spot when on Air, Look in DX Summit or WSPR-Net.
