Discovering the combined abilities of the 40m band and WSPR is like finding Short Wave Magazine on sale in Donaghy's newsagent at Finaghy Cross Roads in 1963. Suddenly endless radio opportunities open up that I never knew existed.
I have never worked ZL and this isn't it. This was rx only. But at least I have now heard it.
OK, I heard about 40m being a great band, but all I ever did was work a handful of G stations during the day. I suppose I never expected a hastily strung-up dipole to do as well as it has. After trying the attic antenna Brian, G0MJI, suggested that I should stick at it. He was right.
Yesterday produced one spot on 10m WSPR and one QSO on 6m JT65 (S58T). By contrast, 40m at a time of year I would not have expected much, but it produced a hatfull of stuff including both ways to Victor HS0ZKM and a lot of US states.
