G6ALB sent me a screenshot tonight of my 500kHz WSPR beacon as it was warming up. For the first 30 minutes it moved some 59Hz, not a lot really, but it looks dramatic on the WSPR waterfall. The reason is the transverter crystal oscillator settling down after first switch-on. At the moment the whole thing is a rats nest in the open on the desk: it needs putting in a box. The WSPR beacon was again heard by G3XVL at 61kms today.
