Looking to set new records
Looking for help in establishing some new
records are Hayden

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
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
