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.

Most ham fun I've had in years.

An Arduino Mega with a "Gowoops" GPS (for time discipline, and grid square calculation), controlling an Si5351 frequency synthesizer. This is a VFO connected to an antenna. Currently operating on 20 m. Typical day -- 33 spots from 13 different stations. What a blast!

Check out if you are interested in building your own multiband WSPR-beacon (AD9850 DDS, HD44780 Display, remote GPS unit based on NEO-6M for locator & time, Arduino-controlled).

test my time server any years

And really my first real confirmed radio activity since getting my license.

I have been very interested in getting my Raspberry Pi and RTL-SDR doing something for a while, but have had difficulty getting the right setup.

Using Raspbian Jessie, I finally figured out how to pipe audio from rtl_fm into wsjtx using the ALSA Loopback driver (modprobe snd-aloop) along with the new 1.8 RC3 release of WSJT-X, and lo-and-behold, my waterfall display started showing activity.

...If you've not heard of this wacky's run by NY7N and involves using an antenna made of bedsprings, 5 watts and contacting New Zealand or Australia. My setup is in the prototype stage, so what better thing to test with than WSPR? If you hear me pinging away, let me know. (I'm hearing stations, but no confirmed contacts as yet) Testing on 40m, 20m, and 10m. Thanks in advance...



Made my first WSPR contact this evening. 5w on an FT-817ND with a Chameleon Mil Whip with extension on a 25 foot tripod. Time was around 7:30 pm central time. I was a little excited

Yesterday I started running WSJT-X WSPR using my ICOM-7300 at 5W feeding a multi band OCF dipole on a ridge 400M above the Pacific with a clear view to the horizon to the north and east. I believe I may be the only SW WSPR beacon currently in operation on the Hawaiian Islands and have spotted a couple of 40M ZU beacons 12000Km away. I am logging many more spots than I am receiving so even though I measure <2:1 SWR on most bands, perhaps my transmit coax losses are higher than one would wish. Hopefully my location adds a new set of propagation paths to the database.

Finished the home brew mag loop today, 8 1/2 foot main loop, vernier drive capacitor. Testing indoors with 200mW. Be interesting to see how it works, so far it’s been heard on 20M in Germany on a very flat band late evening.

The Maritime Radio Historical Society operates the historic coast station SAN FRANCISCO RADIO/KPH, with a transmitter site in Bolinas, CA and a receive site on Point Reyes. We operate using all the original equipment in service at the time the station closed as a commercial coast station in 1997. Beginning today, we will be running WSPR, receive only, and posting our spots to the database. We plan on focusing on the new amateur MF allocation in the USA.


now transmitting using an Ultimate3S and multiband LPF module, and 5w PA (set to 1~2 watts) at 80/40/30/20/17/15/12/10 meters; antenna is a longwire.

Hello all,

I realized it's quite difficult to find precise information about defined WSPR frequencies for all available bands. So I wrote a list for all bands, here you go!

----------Band----------Dial Frequency----------TX Frequency--------------

Today is my first day into the WSPR net.
I am working with one icom 7300 5 watts and dipole antena into WSJX software.

Good vibrations for first time
