    1. Hi Dick, good to hear from you and thanks for dropping by in these difficult times. Hope you are well too. I ordered a new straight key (Wimo) so I can catch up my skills. WSPR is nice to see were my signal landed. Now 1 watt, but soon more QRPp 200 mW. Slowly SFI is increasing. 73 Paul

  2. Good evening Paul, excellent work with only one watt. I tried 20m and 30m today at 5 watts and got nothing! I was getting decodes but no hits on PSK reporter or Ham spots, not sure if I am doing something wrong? I am so used the the speed of FT8 that WSPR seems to take forever.
    73 and you and your family stay safe.

    1. Hi Mike, I do have sometimes the same problem, no spots with FT8 or any other mode, but WSPR never fails. I am always interested in propagation and that was my motivation for the radio hobby. So WSPR is for me a nice tool. When propagation will improve I will use more QRPp for WSPR. The kids are on there own now and don't live here anymore I have more rooms for the hobby. So I am planning for a new shack this summer. New antennas also, and more stealth. 73 Paul
