Running WSPR 24 hours on 26-Jan-2016 on 30m only on receive resulted in a 3rd place with 136 received unique calls.
Distance wise it was place 29.
I think I have to do another experiment using my vertical instead of the horizontal loop. I probabely end better in the distance charts.
Clicking on the blue "uniq's" number you get a nice list from the unique stations heard in order of distance. The times that you spotted a particular station and the power the received station used.
But wait, there is more. You can click on "num. records" and now it gets really interesting. It gives the times when a particular has been spotted. And now we are getting near to a good propagation prediction help. We can actually view the propagation time slots to a particulair area. Combining everything could give a realtime propagation map. Not given are the actual reports, but they can be easily extracted from the database.
I think PE1ITR and PA3FYM are really on a very good way with this experimental website.
First intended as a kind of contest or gaming site competing with each other, and yes if you like that would be possible. But I would have some other ideas to work out if they want ideas?
* I would like to see the actual report given to a station in the last table
* I would like a chart to view propagation to different directions (CQ zones for example). Propagation depends on location very much and a personal chart based on received WSPR spots is something I would really appreciate.
Imagine you switch on your radio and ask yourself in what direction is the best chance of DX at the moment on a band of choice (or all bands). You click on a propagtion chart from you own station (assumed you spotted stations on WSPR) or on the chart from a nearby station and you can instantly view what direction has the best chance. This has nothing to do with sunspots or K and A indexes, no, this would be realtime and would give surprise propagation paths.
Am I too ambitious? Is this something futuristic? I don't think so, if only someone could program this! The amateurradio world would have a great tool!
