WSPR QSO notes
- Hello All,
During a few contacts I tried to make, I experienced problems
finishing the QSO into a valid one. This,in spite of good signals on
Here is a note that might be helpful:
WSPR QSO mode requires a strict application of the proper sequencing
It is not as in WSJT65 etc, where there is much more freedom to fix
things as one goes.
The first priority it to transfer both call signs in hash code. <....>
There are 2 ways to this:
From a CQ or via message # 1.
CQ de VK2AWD:
When now double clicked on VK2AWD, "VK2AWD" is assigned to <....>
For message # 1 transfer: VK2AWD W6SZ
Double clicked on W6SZ, the call is assigned to <....>
The VK2AWD call was introduced through "To Radio" text box.
No report should be transmitted until both calls are known by both the
participants. It is a solid way for weak signal work where the chain
might break for one reason or another.
Then, one party sends a report, ONLY if that report is DECODED, the
"R" report should be returned.
When the "R" report is DECODED, ONLY then, the RRR should be send.
When reports or calls are not decoded, the previous message should be
repeated to indicate that a message was not copied and should be repeated.
Especially under weak signal conditions, QSB etc., it is necessary to
maintain these rules. If not, one can get totally lost in the QSO
progress and it is then very hard and time consuming to correct the
It is as stated in the instructions, all messages should be used and
in the right order.
