500mw WSPR VY0ERC OH8STN

Sometimes you get the unique honour of working one of the cornerstone stations of WSPR. Other times you get the honour of working these “Rock star” stations at sickeningly small power levels. Today I was able to reach out to VY0ERC with 500mw and a Chameleon Hybrid Micro in an Inverted-V configuration. The apex of the inversion was at 12m height, off the side of the tower

As usual operating conditions were:

  • Yaesu FT-817ND
  • ZLP MiniProSC
  • WSJT-X on Ubuntu

    Here’s a video of the Ubuntu setup. 

    Big thanks to the VY0ERC station for making these tests possible.
