    Before I post in the antenna section about my problem. posting here to look for another solution.

    have search the internet but have not found what I am looking for.
    Lot of DIY there for WSPR, but they are dedicated to one band.

    My problem would be solved if I could find, even a DIY project, a transceiver dedicated to QRP, multiband with CAT, that does not cost an arm and a leg.

    Have you checked Hans Summers' kits - eg http://www.qrp-labs.com/ultimate3/u3s.html ?

    Maybe several plug in filters could be automatically switched with (say) diode switching?

    I have that one on order with multi-band add on board.
    It is a transmitter only.

    Reason looking for a transceiver is to not have to put up two antennas
    and also to know what freq it is using at that time, this can only be known if WSPR is doing the control of the freq when band hopping.

    Putting up two antennas will be last resort.

    Here is a 20-meter Raspberry Pi WSPR for your consideration.

    I would think it would be a convenient way to check out various 20-meter portable antenna configurations for SOTA mountaintopping, for example.


    KG5KOG,

    Have you got something working, yet?

    Nothing working in the way transmitting.
    Have not had time to take General test so I can even use the Ultimate 3S.
    Just received it a couple of days ago and been to busy to even start putting it together.
    Want some length of time there where nobody would bug me to do something else.

    On top of that, received an email that the xtals supplied were the wrong ones.
    So have to wait on them to get here.

    Just receiving right now using my R75 and Falcon CHA 250B...
    Was going to pick up some 10 foot masts so I can get it up in the air about 25 feet more (base of it).

    What they are calling a "shield" is a transmitter.

    The Raspberry Pi WSPR is also called a "shield".


    BTW,

    I was told when I could pass the online General License test 3X in a row to take the VEC exam. I didn't do it all at once. I had a busy life. Nevertheless, within 30-days I got it done.
