Looking to set new records

 

Looking for help in establishing some new records are Hayden VK7HH and Leigh VK2KRR

Summer is nearly upon us, and you know what that means? 
DX! Yes VHF and above DX!

We are on the lookout for ANY VK stations who are able to setup a WSPR station on 2 metres or perhaps even 6 metres. You probably already have most of the equipment already at home! We'd especially like to see VK6's and VK4's setup for this summer's action!

WSPR is being used a means of predicting when propagation conditions are sufficient enough for SSB voice contacts on 2 metres. We have a number of stations in VK2, 3, 5 and 7 who are active on WSPR and are looking at breaking some longstanding VHF/UHF DX records.

Obviously a yagi is preferred, but even a vertical, especially on 6 metres, should work well during "E" openings.

We'd love to hear from anyone who is willing to get involved, or, if you'd like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us via email
