VE7QCS and Whisper Mode

Fellow DX’ers, I thought you might be interested in this.

I’ve been running multiband WSPR for the last few days and notice that the best DX consistently opens between 2-4 am local time on 40m. Below are the spots for my station over 10,000km ranked by greatest distance. All but one of them are on 40m and in this time range.

Last night I stayed up until 1 am and managed to work VK1MA on JT65 with 20W. If you are a night owl it might be worth staying up late. After sunday when the clocks go back you would need to stay up an extra hour!
