Thanks to Barrie VE7HBS’s recent presentation to the NSARC HF group, my interest in WSPR has been re-ignited. I used WSPR briefly when first setting up my shack a few months back, basically to see if my signal was getting out.

Now that the summer months are here I might begin to play around with it a bit more as means to test out some new loop configurations. With automatic transmission, WSPR would seem to be the optimum program to not only check propagation but also antenna properties and characteristics.

An early visit from Santa……

Old St. Nick has paid a timely visit to VA7DXC and dropped off a shiny new Icom IC-7000 along with an AH-4 coupler and a host of other goodies.

Now the real test of ‘High Rise Radio’ begins!
