Welcome to 2E1HJE.com

I have started playing with WSPR and I'm quite impressed at what I can "hear" and who "hears" me with such low levels of power

One afternoon I left the rig on from about 1pm -> 9pm to see what was what. This was 5w into the cobwebb antenna @ 35ft: - this was 20m during the day/evening!

In a ten minute period just before switching to 40m I got - so this is 20m @ 21:05 -> 21:15 Hearing: EA6FG, HB9ADJ, K7UEB

I then left it running over night

The 40m loop is better than the cobwebb at picking up VK's etc on 20m.

I also decided to do a coverage map for 2m / 70cm when I changed antennas.

Watson W50 VS Watson W2000 VS Lafayette MA6000

Oh and a little map from the above: I'm the red blob in the middle and the blue splodges are the various repeaters

Once again, thanks for looking & 73's.
