7MHz WSPR overnight


I decided to run 7MHz WSPR overnight at the 1W power level and see what would happen. Actually I started around 1730z yesterday evening and went through. Results were very pleasing. I heard and was heard by VK7BO both at sunset and sunrise this morning. I also heard VK7AM.

Plenty of spots overnight from the USA, as far west as W5. Also very interesting to see all the UK signals come up soon after sunrise, with some very big signals from low power stations around the country. 

Having not been on 7MHz for a while - this was a fun experiment.
