Who said that things on the the wspr front is quiet!.... :angry: :lol: B)

The ZS4AFV beacon was activated last weekend with the assistance of Bernie ZS4TX.

Our own Paul ZS6EHG made this possible with a stand alone set up that he built and made available for this purposes.

Many thanks Paul, much appreciated! :)

Stewart ZS6SGM already started to monitor and capture the data. An article will so be made available in this regard.

The latest report attached below....

Latest edition of The 5 MHz Newsletter
(Winter/Spring 2015)

The latest edition is now available and many thanks to Paul G4MWO.

As mentioned in the newsletter Stewart ZS6SGM was presented with the Icom Excellence Award at the SARL awards dinner on Saturday evening in Bloemfontein.

From the SARL news:

The Icom Excellence Award, the “premier” award of the South African Radio League was presented to Stewart Moss, ZS6SGM. Stewart has been instrumental in getting the WSPR propagation research off the ground, having supported several clubs and individual amateurs. He set up the ZS6SRL WSPR beacon, has written tutorials and analyzes the results, which will make up the reports to ICASA.

Congratulations Stewart and well done!.... ;)

Stewart also did a great presentation on WSPR on Saturday afternoon after the AGM at the SARL Convention in Bloemfontein.... B)

The project is performing well. ZS6KTS is still the reference beacon and measurements are compared against it.

This is the latest map from last night :)

Good news!

ZS1TB was a receiving only beacon and is now a transmit beacon. Thanks Rassie!

It is running from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

The ZS1 region activity is looking good!
