A good evening on 500kHz

This evening I was well pleased with my simple 500kHz transverter and the vertical wire loop antenna in the garden producing around 2mW ERP. The map shows stations that reported me on WSPR including LA3EQ at 769km, which is the best DX so far on the loop. The loop doesn't seem to be that directional surprisingly.

I heard you twice last night...at 20:30 (-26dB) and 21:32 (-27dB), My weak WIFI goes online and offline randomly all the time, so all my received wspr updates did not get through to the WSPRnet.org server! (Now I realy must instal a long cable conection from my radioshack to my internet accesss point.)
