VK1AD – 24 hour WSPRLite at 200 mW

Get out of the Radio Shack and Live Life

Results of my WSPRLite operation over the last 24 hours. Having operated the WSPRLite beacon into a 40m OCF for 7 days it’s time for me to turn on my receiver and spend this weekend listening for WSPR signals on 20m (14 MHz), I’m keen to receive a WSPR signal from K5ACL Austin Texas.  I won’t be sitting next to the radio, I have a list of domestic duties to complete!    Next week I will change the WSPRLite operating frequency to 30m (10 MHz) with a lower power setting.

VK1AD WSPRLite on 20m - 24 hour period 20:00 UTC 23/02/17 to 20:00 UTC 24/02/17 VK1AD WSPRLite 200 mW on 20m – 24 hour period 20:00 UTC 23/02/17 to 20:00 UTC 24/02/17

(Editors note:  fellow CHR member VE7HRA once again is on his annual adventure to the south and his visits to the hamfests.  He files the following report)


Oh what to do to get out of the cold BC winter?
Well let’s just head south and see what we can do that is ham related.
Ah, Quartzfest, the third week of January. Let’s dry camp in the middle of the Arizonia desert for a week. 6 miles south of Quartzsite Az. Pull of Highway 95 follow the signs and look for all of the RV’s with strange antennas sticking up. A week camping with lots of like minded folks. Seminars, demo’s, campfires, hobo stew, cast iron cooking, a hootenanny, meeting old friends and a Saturday early morning swapmeet. What could be better. Continue reading
