WSPR 26,27&28 Dec 2014

Event: WSPR 10m amateurradio band
Logger: WSPR 2 - R1714
Station: Yaesu FT-817ND, 1W
Antenna: HB9CV east in morning, south at 12-13 UTC, west in the afternoon
Log converter: DL1HW Adif2Excel2Adif converter, UU0JC logconverter
Log analyzer: HRD V4

Received by 115 unique stations from 26 DXCC. Best DX was VK7AB from Tasmania 16910 km. Nothing from ZL and JA and less stations from Russia and South America. Analyzing WSPR over a couple of days is more interesting then one day only. 10m opens very early one day and late another day. Same when the band is closing. I like to follow and read the blog from Roger G3XBM regarding his WSPRing on 10m. It gives an idea when the band is closing in the afternoon. Roger had a stroke a while ago and has problems talking on the radio. With WSPR he can still enjoy the hobby. WSPR is not only interesting for licensed amateur operators but everyone can try it. You don't even have to use a radio. Use a webSDR instead. That way you can monitor WSPR from everywhere in the world. And you can choose your own location as long as there is a webSDR.

HRD V4 can produce nice maps with mapper (included in V4) as long as you have the locators inserted.






  1. Hi,I would very much appreciate a permanent link on your blog-site to my QRP shortwave website.

    Here’s a link to my QRP-website: www.stationqrp.com

    Thank you very much in advance!


    1. I've been reading your site Jack. 8W is not QRP in our eyes. You have built great things. But not for use in the official hamradio bands. I don't think there is much interest in your site from my blog readers. Sorry. 73, Bas

  2. Hallo Bas, WSPR blijft interessant en je kunt daar zoveel info uithalen. Helaas doe ik dat je weinig omdat mijn laptop bij de FT-817 ook voor andere doeleinden wordt gebruikt.
    Daar komt binnenkort verandering in maar daar informeer ik je wel per email over. Prettige jaarwisseling en 73 Hans, PE1BVQ

    1. Prettige jaar wisseling voor jou en XYL Hans. 73, Bas

  3. Goeie info man, ik kijk regelmatig via Twitter op je blog, zo ook nu weer bruikbare links.
