Aloha, WSPR DXCC nr.92

Thanks to the blog post from John MW1CFN it was known to me that there was a possible good path to Hawaii on 20m WSPR. And since it is not yet in my WSPR DXCC list I was eager to get a report. So I took the opportunity to test the IC-7300 with WSPR for the first time and brought it down easily to 1W WSPR output. When I woke up this morning and checked the WSPR reports on my phone AI6VN/KH6 was on top of my list and gives me WSPR DXCC nr. 92.


Like John wrote on his blog there seems to be a good path on 20m every morning when the greyline passes over the Hawaiian islands. My signal might not that good compared to MW1CFN and also my location is by far not as good. But at least I got 5 spots in total with strongest at 05:56 UTC.

  1. Hi Bas, it looks like long path. I did a check with a propagation website for your location to Hawaii and there are two peaks on the long path... 06:00 UTC and 18:00 UTC.

    The short path prediction shows a lower MUF with broad peaks at 09:00 and 19:00 UTC.

    1. Hello John, MW1CFN suggested the same. I think it is indeed longpath. Interesting! 73, Bas
