1st WSPR spot @18MHz

The Si570 10mW WSPR beacon has reached now OH3QN, 1634km away at 17m band. Interesting to see that it received at -7dB below noise in 2.4kHz SSB bandwidth. As the WSPR threshold is -27dB below noise, this means in theory the beacon could still be seen with a power below 100µW, wow!

Also DL2NQ did receive the beacon at 80m. It is special as the antenna is just an inerted V for 40m.
