This morning began like any other. I logged in, checked my email, and searched wsprnet.org for WSPR spots of my beacon, to see if any unusual callsigns have shown up overnight. I saw that ZL3IN managed to spot me overnight (I’ve gotten him a few times), but I also saw WA2YUN, reporting me from grid square RK39hh. RK39hh? Where the heck is that?
It turns out it’s Wake Island.
It’s a tiny coral atoll in the Pacific, only a couple miles across, and has played an interesting role in the history of the United States, particularly during the Second World War. I find it very cool that Colin is over there, running a WSPR listener.
