    Not sure if I am deciphering this correctly, but no, you need the software . WSPR frequencies are published, Google "wspr frequencies" for the complete list.

    Awesome! How large is the 60m mag-loop?

    I had just finished building a 40-10m trap dipole and mounted it pretty low as an inverted-V. Surprised the heck out of me that I worked DP0VGN on 40m JT9 that night running 10w. Great guys down there.

    It is a pity, but yesterday on 10.136 fashion of FT8, 2 hours could not cause. Full ignoring of Asia!
    Decoding was excellent.

    Pretty nice idea!
    We, a group of DLR colleagues, working at Instiute of Space Systems in Bremen planning also a artic beacon.
    Place is Thule/ Greenland. This hardware will be a part of our satellite groundstation based in a sea container. Test mode is running with the callsign DK0DLR/1. The complete hardware is remote controlled. I will keep you informed when this system goes in operational mode.

    This was a GREAT article. Thank you very much. I read and reread the article several times. There were also a few replies worth reading and I gave those a "like".

    Does anybody know what frequency this beacon is on so perhaps people like me can see if we can hear it?
