What can one do when there are no good conditions for SSB or CW contacts? PSK31 is a good option. Or digimodes in particular. The amateur bands are abandoned at daytime, especially the higher bands. I turned on WSPR this morning and the unmanned station did his job. I saw LA6TPA regular in my reports. Normally I watch for a WSPR DX, but it's also nice to see what the signal is doing to one station or grid. In this case LA6TPA. It is just a try, because I had to do a lot of other things today, such as gardening and painting. But I can think of serious investigations about propagation during dawn or nightfall and what it does to the SNR. So I can do something meaningful with my QRP rig, waiting for sunspot cycle 24 to start.
Tonight I worked with BPSK31 on 40 meter UA2FHZ, Anatoly from Kaliningrad, Russia. With WSPR I jumped the big pond K1JT and W1XP.
