SOTABEAMS has released details of latest addition to their antenna testing system, the WSPRlite Flexi, today.
Building on the success of the WSPRlite Classic, the Flexi increases coverage from 6 metres through to 630 metres.
The Flexi also incorporates a number of new facilities including a unique interference avoidance algorithm to help it avoid interference from other WSPR users. When combined with the DXplorer.net website, WSPRlite provides a unique way to look at antenna performance and to see how propagation varies in real-time.

He believes he accomplished a “first” for a Canadian radio amateur on October 22, when his very VLF, very QRP signal on 8.27 kHz (that would be the 36-kilometer band) was copied in the UK.
