The sunspot activity is dramatically low since 16 days. We had a promising peak in January /February but now we reach the point of end November last year.
Now conditions are poor on HF I went to 10 meter and 2 meter for WSPR on those two bands. The Sporadic-E season is here. The months May, June and July are the best months for Sporadic-E refection. Yesterday I WSPR-ing on 2 meter but I get two emails that I was using the wrong dial frequency. I was using 144.488 MHz, but this is only the dial frequency in the USA. I change the dial frequency in the WSPR ini file to 144.489 MHz.
I was reported on 2 meter by PE1NWL, distance 65 km. I received the WSPR signal of DL1DBC, distance 218 km. I check daily the Tropospheric Ducting Forecast for Western Europe and VHFdx.info for possible conditions.
An overview, summary or tutorial about the basics of Sporadic E or Es radio signal propagation as it is used by radio hams or radio amateurs on the amateur radio bands.
Last night I worked on 30 meter with PSK31 SM3CER Jan from Sundsbruk, Sweden.
