Bight Path on 2m WSPR -2013/2014

Postby VK2KRR » Tue Dec 17, 2013 9:39 pm

Approx 5 days of trememdous 2m WSPR activity, which for some has provided their first taste of tropo across to VK6 from VK5, VK3.

Perrin VK3XPT Testing The Limits!
As a matter of interest, Perrin VK3XPT in Melbourne, conducted some very low power WSPR tests with Derek.
Perrin writes -
"Today I progressively went from 10w, to 5w, 2w, 1w, 500mW, 200mW, 100mW, 50mW and finally 20mW, and I was successful on all these levels, only moving to the next level once I had made the contact... It took some time and concentration, but it is all good fun - and all in the spirit of pushing the limits!"
Perrin is running a single 13 ele yagi.

Listed below are Perrins test results -

Hi Leigh,

Thanks for the post. In my testing, I actually did go from 10W straight to 2W, as the data shows. I did not do any 5W tests, despite my original comment! (I skipped a 5W test in the interest of time, as I wanted to get to the lowest power level possible before the path closed.) Sorry for any confusion!

Cheers,

Perrin VK3XPT

Hi Leigh

Thanks for doing this post. It has certainly been a busy few Days on 2m WSPR.

I am surprised how well WSPR hears, My few SSB attempts I could hear very little.

You can see all stations spotted by Derek or who heard him, in the image.
Unfortunately no paths extended to VK6JR or VK6MT.

Sporadic E on 2m WSPR this afternoon for Rob VK5ZRL near Adelaide and Derek VK6DZ near Albany.
Rob reporting that he was using an IC746 and a simple 2/70cm colinear vertical omni to capture the single spot.

Bight Path opening evening 28th and morning 29th Dec 2013.
Only path crossing the Bight was between VK6DZ and VK2KRR. I first heard Dereks signal at 12.38am EDST and last decode was at 06.36am, not long after sunrise signals disappeared. Derek's strongest signal was a -9dB at 02.10am.
15:10 VK6DZ 144.490473 -9 0 OF84ux 10 VK2KRR QF34mr 2664 km.
A big thank you to Wayne VK6JR for also listening out from Dunsborough, we'll get there one day.

So much Bight path activity its hard to keep up with it all.
The past opening went for a number of days. From the evening of the 18th January 2014 till the evening of 21st January. Seemed to be opened and closed by Phil VK5AKK and Derek VK6DZ.

Just to add to Leigh's post above, I also had a partial JT65B contact with VK6JR, but there were a number of others including ZL2 all trying at the same time. I really need more antenna, as another 6dB or so gain would make all the difference over my current temporary 4el on a 1m boom.

It's really a great pity that their hasn't been much uptake of WSPR in ZL, as they were reporting hearing the VK3 beacons at good strength while we were trying to work VK6. I think it's only a matter of time before (PROVIDING AT LEAST A FEW ZLs GET ACTIVE ON WSPR) we see VK6s and ZLs hearing each other each other on that mode and hopefully translating that to 2-way SSB, CW or JT65 contacts.

Another Bight path opening beginning evening of the 23th Feb and closing midday of the 24th Feb.

This one caught Brian VK5BC by surprise, he was beaming east not west. No signals made it to Wayne VK6JR on this occassion.
By the way, this was VK5BC/p at Corny Point, PF85mc, just above sea level.

Bight path opening beginning evening of the 1st March and closing morning the 3rd March.

Was uncertain if this one was going to open up for us, but it did when Phil VK5AKK started hearing Derek VK6DZ with a big -1dB report at 1036 utc in the evening.

Bight path opening beginning evening of the 7th March and closing later the same evening 7th March.

Both Phil VK5AKK and Derek VK6DZ pushing the boundaries of the openings as the days become shorter and nights longer. :mrgreen:

Just reviewed this thread and counted how many openings have been recorded so far.

Tropo - 15 openings (each opening from different weather systems, openings over a number of days from same high cell counted as 1)

Sporadic E - 2 openings listed (aware of another 2 I think)

Impressive. :D
