One more extra plus to WSPR is that it will not interfere with other users on the bands since it uses only 200Hz bandslots and low power beacons. 


It was a matter of time but one day i should also receive the /7 since it was received every night by G8HUH in West U.K.
But low band propagation is not going to be better coming months since we are heading towards spring. Not this morning very cold freezing wind.  
Last night propagation was restored enough from the recent eruption on the Sun.
For the first time i had 2 decodes of WD2XSH/7  in EM31js   
now my ODX  receive is improved to 7830km

WD2XSH/17 weak decoded also 5630km 
/17 can be decoded almost every night
