Overnight WSPR spots on 40m

January 31, 2009 | Amateur Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

I got home fairly late last night, and wasn’t up to any serious radio activities, but I did activate my WSPR beacon on 40m, and let it run. This morning, around 8:00AM local time, I was treated to a pretty good haul of DX spots especially from VK4 land. I had spots from VK4ZW, VK4YEH, and VK4ZBV, as well as ZL3IN and 7L4IOU. I think it’s about time for me to make up a new spot map.

I’m shifting the beacon over to 30m, then it’s time to prepare goodies for the superbowl party at Sandy’s tomorrow.

Addendum: Shifted over to 30m, and managed to get VK6DI from Western Australia. Awesome, I think that’s a new personal distance record. Yep, that’s about 700 miles farther than my previous record via 9V1LF.
