This afternoon, whilst updating my website, I put on the 10m WSPR beacon. All was very quiet for the first hour or so and I was about to switch it off. Then I looked and saw a heap of stateside spots had appeared. This is the beauty of WSPR: you can get on with other things and use it to see when the band opens up. It will become especiallyuseful on 10m when the peak (such as it is) is over and we are looking at quiet conditions on 10m again. At least with WSPR there will be a much clearer picture of the openings that do occur.
