I was absent from 630-meters during this session due to a prior commitment but it seems the band was live and well.


24-hour view of WSPR activity September 26/27, 2015, NA time

Starting in the east, three European stations were reported in North America

DK7FC, as reported by W1TAG/1



DF6NM, as reported by W1TAG/1


There were no reports of North American WSPR stations being heard in Europe.  I do not know if that was a lack of reciprocity or only that no stations were listening towards North America during those openings.

The situation is a little muddier in the Pacific.  Merv, K9FD/KH6 / WH2XCR, reported an internet outage beginning at 1200z but it appears that only a few key VK –> KH6 reports were not uploaded.  I will start with the reports that we know for certain.  From North America, it was all WH2XGP and VE7BDQ moving south to Oceania during this session.


WH2XGP, as reported by VK3ELV


VE7BDQ, as reported by VK3ELV


The path from Oceania to KH6 was open, with reports from VK3ELV at WH2XCR.

Its also noted that due to the internet problem, five additional reports from VK3ELV were reported at WH2XCR.  The best was -19 db S/N in normal WSPR bandwidth.  Thanks to Jim, W5EST, for this additional information that was provided by Merv, WH2XCR.

Additionally, it appears that VK5ABN was reported at WH2XCR for a first VK5 –> KH6 report ever recorded but was manually reported at a level of -29 db S/N at 1218z.

In the Caribbean, Eden, ZF1EJ, reported five stations from the mainland US
