Here is a challange to all KARTS Members

Using Stewart ZS6SGM's excellent tutorial, I quickly setup WSPR to receive the KARTS Beacon :)

If I can do it, you can too :) So I challange members to download and setup the WSPR Software for recieving,
Lets support the club in the upcoming 60 Mhz contest, don't leave it too late, now is the time to setup and test.

This picture shows my software receiving the signal in yellow on the left, and decoding the signal in blue on the right

Got some decodes, even thou I'm just down the road

Get your callsign to appear on the World wide web :cheer:

I challenge you to decode the KARTS Beacon and your software should automatically upload the "Spot" your decode of our beacon to the WSPR Website as below.

Then post a screen shot as above from the WSPR.net activity page. :)
