WSPR?
« on: June 03, 2021, 0230 UTC »
Has anyone messed around w/WSPR on their SDRs?  Thought it might be a useful tool for monitoring real world propagation at my QTH.

Would be neat if Multimode added it…(nudges Chris… :))

Lots do... see http://wspr.pe1itr.com/index.php   But monitoring FT8 is far superior - there are so few WSPR stations by comparison, so you don't get the big picture with wspr only.  There was a great presentation by CT1BOH on Contest University (held virtually), on DXEngineering utube site.  About 5 hrs 40m into it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-esob7BPtc&t=19167s
