My 6m 1W ERP WSPR signals are yet again being spotted in Israel.
I think this is now 5 days this season he has spotted me at this incredible distance. In all I must have had around 20 spots if not more from him? The considered wisdom is this is Es, but I do sometimes wonder what the propagation mechanism is. The lack of stations at intermediate distances may be because few are active on WSPR, but it “feels” like a single long hop, not unlike F2. My station and antenna are basic.
People who know better than me tell me it is not F2. Whatever, I am very pleased to have my QRP station being spotted so often in Israel.
Today, starting at 0704z, he has spotted me 6 times already by 0846z.
|6m spots by 4X1RF (1W ERP here) to 0830z today|
Most Es spots seem to be from Scandinavia currently, just 1 from Italy.
UPDATE 0942z: Just Scandinavian Es for the last hour here.
UPDATE 1530z: Another spot from Israel of my QRP 6m signal at 1314z. That makes it 7 just today!
