Shhhh lets Whisper….
OK I don't actually mean lets whisper with our voices quietly... WSPRnet (pronounced whisper-net) is the Weak Signal Propogation Reporting Network.
It allows you to send a 2 minute signal at low power and then other stations around the world receive and report where they heard you signal.
So from home I fired up the radio, at 5watts, the lowest I can transmit at. and set it off. Lets see where we get too......
Well thats's not bad for first attempt!
From Sweden throughout Europe, Across to Belarus and down to the Canary Islands!
Will try some of the other Bands to see if they work better than 40m, will also try as the grey line comes along this evening...
