WSPR all night on 80m band

The station YO3IBW was WhiSPeRing  (WSPR ) all night on the 80m band using my 40m band inverted V dipole antenna, and 25W from my Kenwood TS850s. I was quite curious how the antenna is working on long distances in 80m.
The radio and my computer was able to hear AB3LM, DL4ZBX, DO3BOX, F6CNI, G3JKF, G7ETC, K1JT, K3BXO, M0PPP, OK2SAM, PA0O, W9SKP and was able to be received by 9A4DE, DH5RAE, DO3BOX, F6CNI, G7ETC, G8JNJ/A, M0PPP, OE3FVU, PA0O
As you can see on the map above, the TS850s baby was able to listen for few stations from the east coast of the United States.

Oricum, corpul era deja imbibat de “miresmele” transpiratiei si ca sa mascheze cat de cat mirosul neplacut, miresele purtau in brate un buchet de flori (de aici a ramas obiceiul buchetului purtat de mireasa!) ; “Cada” era, de fapt, un butoi mare, plin cu apa calda. Stapanul casei avea privilegiul de a se imbaia primul, in apa curata. In aceeasi apa urmau la spalat, rand pe rand, fiii si restul persoanelor de sex masculin din familie. Apoi venea randul femeilor si, la sfarsit, al copiilor, in ordinea descrescatoare a varstelor. In final, apa era atat de murdara, incat puteai pierde un bebelus prin ea. De atunci dateaza la britanici vorba “Nu arunca pruncul odata cu apa in care te-ai spalat”. Regina Elisabeta I a Angliei a ramas celebra si prin urmatoarea declaratie, facuta cu mandrie: “Fie ca e nevoie sau nu, eu o data la trei luni ma spal !”

Flower Macro or something like that :)


Flower Macro or something like that with the 18-55 VR Nikkor (Nikon) lens. The camera was mounted on the stand, manual focus, timer on 5 seconds… and other magic settings. Well, I’m thinking on a dedicated macro lens setup … I pretty sure that the magic level will rise. Happy spring, Happy Easter everyone!
