WSPR off the west coast of Africa

A brief period of WSPR propagation testing at 10MHz the other evening revealed an interesting spot of my signal that I don't think I've ever seen before.

Because I've worked on smaller research vessels, I was very interested to see my signal was heard by GM0HCQ/MM, a WSPR station on board the RV James Clark Ross.

WSPRing its homecoming.

A look on the AIS site confirmed my expecation that the ship was returning home to the UK after a summer in Antarctic.  The latest port of departure was Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands.

Always something interesting on ham radio!
