10m long path, distance record with 1W WSPR

Just received VK a few times late in the evening. My HB9CV pointed west. Unusual late 10m propagation.


I'm actually hunting for KP4MD who has been active on 10m this evening, but propagation is too good. Signals are hopping right over him much further away. KP4 is not yet in my log and would be WSPR DXCC nr.79.


Distance shown at WSPRnet.org is not correct for long path propagation. VK4CZ -> PE4BAS is almost 24000km. I have only received VK, they did not spot my 1W signal yet.

Update 21:45 UTC: It is almost midnight here. Still there are a lot of traces in the WSPR waterfall. It was only a matter of time. My distance record has been broken. 23810km with 1W WSPR.

    1. Dat kun je wel zeggen Paul. Heb de titel en het bericht alweer aangepast. Het is al gelukt met 1W. Bijna 24000km, meer dan de helft van de aarde omtrek. 73, Bas

    1. Absoluut, zag dat VK4CZ ook goed vertegenwoordigd is op fb, twitter en zelfs blogspot. 73, Bas

  3. Well done Bas! You're right about the unusual propagation; it was so good on 12m this weekend that I was working a steady flow of US stations into darkness. Amazing!

    1. Hello John, absolutely fabulous propagation on 10 and 12. It has been a long time ago and might be the last time in many years. 73, Bas
