6m - active WSPR stations : why so few?

This shows the total number of stations active in the whole world on 6m WSPR - just 35. As you can see, there is zero activity in the eastern seaboard states of the USA or Canada apart from W4.

Please, please give this very sensitive mode a try. It is about 12-14dB better than CW so very modest antennas and low power are fine.  Even just on RX would be a start. Nearly half in the world on 6m WSPR is just receiving. There are transatlantic openings being missed.
Just 35 stations worldwide active on 6m WSPR at 1915z

Hello Roger, I'll do some WSPR on 6 sometimes. The problem only is that I don't want to let the computer run the whole day 24/7. I've been thinking and looking for a computer that doesn't consume too much energy. Just for WSPR purpose. May be a arduino is a option for this purpose. It seems WSPR can be installed on linux based computers as well. 73, Bas
