13 Apr 2012 – 10m

A different picture of 10m propagation than a week ago. The band was dead for most of the morning. Then I started to receive and be spotted by German stations at around 1200km distance – weak Sporadic-E I think.

10m WSPR spots for G4ILO – 13 April 2012

Someone asked me whether these WSPR spots were obtained using the Propeller beacon I have been writing about. I’m afraid not. I haven’t managed to solve the frequency stability problems of my Gadget Gangster board so I’ve been using my K3 for transmit and receive.
