Using WSPR Data to Study Propagation 40 & 20 Meter Bands

Many thanks to Jim (KX4TD) who writes:

Hi Thomas,

I am a subscriber and ham radio operator circa 1974. Like you (and a lotta hams) I started as a SWL using a transistorized Lafayette Radio receiver.

Last evening, I listened to the April 2022 Wireless Flirt podcast from Ireland where you were interviewed about the comeback of SW radio. Well done Thomas! You are one articulate dude!

I currently have a uBitx that I use for base and portable operation. We share an interest in POTA and other QRP field operations.

My latest obsession is WSPR. Attached [linked below], please find some of my WSPR findings on 40 meters.

73,

Jim KX4TD

Thank you so much for sharing this and for the kind words, Jim! It’s strange, but I’ve yet to dive into the world of WSPR. I actually have a QRPLabs QCX+ transceiver kit I purchased specifically to explore WSPR. I just need to find the time to build it now! 

Thanks again for sharing your amazing report!

  1. Excellent report on Discovery TX -500 QRP transceiver. Very informative. I read your report in RADCOM November 2021 publication. 73

  2. Oops! Sorry about the “Buffalo Massacre” mention int eh title. I was trying to post this message at the same time as a Radio Waves report on the SWLing Post. I accidentally added that to the title in the wrong window. The mention was referring to a local station in Buffalo that covered that tragic event. Sorry about the confusion.
