Still amazed

It was early, 7.34 UTC Saturday morning, I worked RA6BU (see photo taken from qrz.com) with 0,5 watt JT65A mode. That is 5364 km/watt. Also worked IZ7DMT with JT65A. I am still amazed what can be achieved with QRP. Last night I was monitoring 500 KHz WSPR and I heard Roger G3XBM with 2 milliwatt. (see screen shot below)

  1. These "new" digital modes are becoming more and more intriguing. I may give them a "shot" when I am back in the States and am able to study them and concentrate further on their application. Also get a cheap notebook. Right now, over here, just too much going on.

    Have a great family weekend, Paul.

  2. Hallo Paul,

    Wat voor setup gebruik je om 500Khz te ontvangen?

    Ik heb WSPR hier op 30M aan maar vind de afstanden niet echt geweldig.

  4. Hallo Tjeerd, ik luister met de FT450, 80 meter dipole en extra draad die normaal voor aarde gebruik (deels buiten op de grond) maar op de lage frequenties gebruik als antenne. ;-) Met WSPR en AGC uit, kijken wat er horen valt. Zelfs met de FT817 en Miracle whip inclusief de draden ook succes op de lage banden. Helaas kan ik niet zenden op deze frequenties. Condities waren gisteravond op de lage frequenties erg goed. 73 Paul

  5. Paul,

    Dat ga ik dan binnenkort ook eens proberen met de FT817.
    Nu QRV met WSPR op 30M, ben net overgestapt naar 500mW.

    Prettig weekend.

    73, Tjeerd

  6. Hi Paul, I had seen that QST has a write up on WSPR I plan on reading it and get more familiar with it. Enjoy the weekend that has already started.
