WSPR beacon on the way to the Antarctic

The DARC report the hardware for the planned WSPR amateur radio beacons are now on their way to the Neumayer III base in Antarctica  

This is a joint project of the Technical University of Munich, University of Bremen and the DARC e.V.

The installation consists of a beacon transmitter for the 160m to 6m bands with a power output of 5 watts and a WSPR multi-band receiver based on a Red Pitaya, which simultaneously monitors all bands from 160m to 15m and can deliver up to 700 WSPR receive reports to the web every hour.

The commissioning of the system at the German research station "Neumayer III" is planned for January 2018.
