I thought I'd post about this as I've decided to give it another go. I left the rig on from about 1pm -> 9pm to see what was what.

The 40m loop is better than the cobwebb at picking up VK's etc on 20m.

It must be nice to have such a good all round take off, everything I get on WSPR is to the north east and down to the south east never anything over to west as I am hemmed in by steep wooded hillsides, ws quite amazed when I got this with the little FT817ND and a home made magnetic loop

Hi Chris, it was on 30m, no special reason other than thats what the antenna was tunned for at the time as I had been trying a few different freeware digi mode softwares, I was realy shocked to see it as it was on the little FT817nd with the antenna indoors, couldnt believe it at first as the RX call is incomplete but others have commented the same in the wspr blog, I think WSPR is brilliant for antenna testing.
