After a few computer issues with my PropNET operation, I have been trying some other processes to see how they work on my older XP and Vista laptops and desktops.
I have recently started up on WSPR (Weak Signal Propagation Reporter)
I received this Email today:
Good evening Arthur,
what a pleasure to see that you copied my WSPR beacon!
I am running a very modest WSPR setup on this side:
- Ultimate 2 kit (designed by Hans Summers, G0UPL)
- with additional GPS receiver and active indoor-antenna
- power output is ca. 200 mW into a
- horizontal 28 MHz quarterwave on a Bamboo whip out of the kitchen window.
My homepage shows some images:
Thank you very much for running your WSPR setup and uploading the spots!
Let me know whether you would like to receive a QSL card that confirms your reception report (paper, PDF or other format).
Best regards from Bavaria,
200 mW into this antenna!!!!!!!
The 200 mW QRO rig.
5543 miles 22715 mi / 1 watt
All I can say is WOW!!
I captured this transmission with my 27 year old Yaesu FT-747GX fed with RG8X into a 42 year old 3-Element 10 Meter yagi.
Caliche and copper must enhance signals here.... hi hi
