    The beacon has been running with success. We are testing out the WSPR mode and have been running it non-stop since the 23rd of Feb.

    WSPR has been doing great for dx

    We will continue to run WSPR until the end of March 2014.

    5.250Mhz - TX every 12 mins or so. Tx for two mins.

    Visit wsprnet.org for more information on using and decoding WSPR
