A stand-alone receiver kit for WSPR

A few months ago I wrote about a new transmitter kit for WSPR. A receiver kit for this mode is now available from a different source (also available fully built).

Of more significance than the fact that we hams have a new kit available is the idea that WSPR is a great science project for non-hams…and therefore a great way to introduce ham radio to those outside the hobby.

Along with their new kit, Stellar WSPR is pushing the mode of WSPR as a research project for schools and DIY’ers – ie, the Maker brigade – a good thing for ham radio.

This month’s issue of Nuts & Volts magazine has a write-up on the Stellar WSPR Receiver kit, currently available for either 20 or 30 meters. Another good thing for the hobby – an article about ham radio in a magazine with a significant number of non-hams.

    Hi John, that reminds my I still have to build the W5OLF WSPR TX. This is a great add on. Would be nice together with one of those cheap computers they are developing. 73, Bas
