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 had several decodes in the early hours today from N1NAZ. This was the best SNR:

I was using a 40m delta loop at about 10m high for the main horizontal(ish) section.


The goal of my 160m season is already reached. After the latest night, my 160m Challenge of reception include 29 unique callsigns of North American stations. I finished the previous season with a count of 27. So I hope now to "blow up" this score because the period is not over.

I have a great pleasure to publish this list with the power to show the qrp spirit of all the station i heard.

I am running tests between two antennas in the garden Friday morning on 10m (28.1246MHz), between 10:00 UTC and 12:00 UTC. Would appreciate some spots out there if anyone is game. Assuming 10m is workable that is.

My first VK spot using a 1metre dia magloop made from junkbox bits (heavy copper wire, no tubes) at no cost at all!

OMG, amazing what a bit of 'wet string' and 100mW can do:

Many thanks to VK2WD for the report - still can't believe it!


Since September 2013 start date of my new season on 160m WSPR I was happy to know that Leigh (VK2KRR) came back to the 160m. I was a little impatient to spot again Leigh . The last time was on 25/04/2012 .....
Well last night, as we say in French "J'ai remis le couvert" (I've done it again) :

Today, we tested 23cm 2-way WSPR. Our callsign was displayed on Activity list and Map.
But T/R data was not displayed on the Spot Database.

Been out of the Ham Radio loop for many years and just beginning to get myself back in. Have been working on servicing my old kit (HW101 and Icom IC202) to get them up and running again. So far so good. Only problem is the VFO drift is way too high - so am looking at adding a stabaliser to the HW101 at least. First job is to build a simple frequency counter (thanks to EI9GQ).

Tonight, I've worked 2m WSPR with JA1KWV in Tokyo.

Tonight I will be monitoring 160m with a Wellbrook magnetic RX loop fed into my Anan100D. Hope for good spots.

I plan to try to move the WSPRnet server to a hosting provider early Saturday UTC, probably 0200-0400Z. Downtime should last about an hour, but I'm not sure of the timing yet. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

To day i started my big measuring program to get a statistical
feeling about conditions on 80 m. over 240 Km. distance.
A 10 Watt transmitter is running now with a 40m. endfed longwire at
about 6 meter above ground (West-East orientation)
This rig will operate for a few weeks without any changes.
My receiving station is located in Breda with call: PA0JEN
This station also will not change.
PA0JEN has a high level of local noise in an urban location.

Just thought I'd write up a quick note about my station. I built it up over christmas, it was a great excuse to get the iron out and remind myself how to solder again.

I'm running a Raspberry Pi with JamesP6000's fork of the WsprryPi project, which is a credit to all concerned. James has added some useful options to the software which makes keeping it on a stable frequency quite simple.

I have the Flex set up to beacon WSPR on 17 meters. Output power is 1 watt. The antenna for transmit is the 30 meter delta loop. For RX, both the 30 and 40 meter delta loops are used in diversity to the two receivers on the Flex.

On the frequency of the 20 meters 14.097.08 and 'active 24 hours on 24, my beacon in qrsss way. The antenna is a dipole positioned east / west, and the power 'of about 20 db. More info and updates visit QRZ.COM IK6ZEW looking for.
73' to ALL !!!

I usually use WSPR with 5W out, but tonight I plan to leave it on with just 500mW or so, to see hot it turns out. 7MHz band, 41m long OCFD.

Finally back on using Elecraft K3 (5w) into a loaded whip antenna at 13m (for 160m).

Hi there is a spot that has its year set to be 2030 that always sits at the top of the 50MHz band listings, does anyone know how to get it purged?
