At this time of the year 6m is a great band for sporadic-E DXing with QRP and simple antennas. All of Europe and North Africa is in range with 5W SSB and a dipole, halo or small vertical. At the moment I'm putting my WSPR beacon on 6m whenever I can in the hope of catching some short openings in unusual directions. Best DX reports so far are to/from CN8LI in Morocco at 2113km. With some luck, the band will open up to the USA and Canada soon (multi-hop Es) and I'll get some spots from across the Atlantic on 6m.

Hello Roger

What is the frequency for WSPR activity on six meters,
should be good for DX with an indoor whip and an FT817.
Theres a promise of having the XYls laptop so i can have a go at some serious WSPRing. My old Dell laptop is totally nackered and too slow for Internet access.

BTW Roger are you on Twitter I would like to follow you.
