Crossing a small bit of the pond...

I got into WSPR because I wanted to one day walk into my shack and be greeted by a Google map with big long lines showing my milliwatt signal stretching bravely across various oceans. That hasn't really happened yet, but I got a taste of it this morning courtesy of OY3JE's WSPR station. Jan lives in the Faroe islands, about 1600 miles from me. Last night at around 2300 UTC my 18 mw WSPR signal made it to Jan's location. I was 29 db below the noise. Thanks Jan!
