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.

Obviously I screwed up. How do I get it back?

Hi Folks

Just a quick go at using WSPR and my first time ever using a data mode.

Software very very easy to set up and use. Had it working within minutes.

Very Happy.

Hello all,
I have been doing analysis of Spring/Summer Es for 12 years, mostly with PropNET (PSK31). This year I switched to WSPR. I have posted the seasonal recap on my personal blog.
http://ka5dwipropagation.blogspot.com/2016/09/2016-springsummer-es-seaso...
I found the same trends and tendencies that I have experienced over the years. It just was not a very good Es season.

Heard ZL on top band... 0532gmt. A few years ago, this would have been at the height of DXing but now done using a piece of wet string.

0532 -20 -0.8 1.838104 0 ZL3PX RE66 43 19058

I am not active with amateur radio much anymore due to my health but I tried to grab a WSPR spot with an RTL-SDR (without upconverter) using only the included 7-8" antenna while mounted indoors. I only got one In about 10 minutes of time (W4MO) He is in EM87 and I am in EM86. Not exactly DX but still impressive!! I am impressed since I have always been intrigued by weak signal work. Virginia to Florida with such a meager receiving setup...Just WOW!!!!

Sorry for the wobbly cut-and-paste, pleased with my first foray into the world of wspr.

Hello,
I think I have one of the last of the TAPR 20m wspr LPF/filter output boards for the Raspberry PI. Please support TAPR and let them know if you want them to continue to produce these neat things. In any case, mine is on the air on 20 meters today. Maybe someone will hear it! Contact me at N8LWF at arrl dot net if you need to.

Have fun!
Andy

Quite a surprise to find this one when going through last nights spots

I plan to migrate and upgrade the server to new hardware, newer OS release, etc., about 8 Sep 0100-0300Z. Sorry about the downtime, but we'll come out of this in better shape! I really don't know how long it will take to upgrade the database, but expect downtime for at least ~2 hours.

What a lucky night!! I heard ten NA stations this night (Sept1st) on 160 and for the most part at sunrise:
WB5WPA(10w), W3PM(1w), K9AN(2w), K9PAW(1w), W9MDO(5w), K9YWO(1w), W8OZZ(10w), W8AC(5w), AA3GZ(100w), KW2Y(1w).
Curiously I was the only one to benefit of ALL the opening….. sorry to “pull the cover to me” hi hi

Unique inter-continent spots overnight; some stations were spotted numerous times!
