Monday Night WSPR

Given the bad band conditions last night I was surprised to work a pile of stations across the Atlantic, and out to the west coast, on 80m.

The big surprise came at 0340 UTC, again on 80m, when I had a return from V51B in Namibia, that's 15, 844 Km from me......on 5 watts.  Not too shabby at all !!

Radio in use was the FT-950 with power turned down to 5w, and my 148' inverted L long wire antenna.


  1. Very nice work for a long wire and 5 watts for sure! It goes to show you to not just pay attention to the solar forecast but to get on the air and give things a whirl.

    1. Very true Mike!! If you don't get on the air you'll never know who you could have worked.....regardless of the numbers.
