If you could SEE my TX,  "antenna" and ATU you would realise how amazed I am at this report from G3XVL. My antenna is literally 15m of low horizontal wire with about 2m of it vertical, a central heating ground and an ATU on the bedroom table made from a ferrite rod and fed with 700mW from a 2N3906/2N3904. This proves that 500kHz is possible with a really minimalist station. I can only imagine what will be possible with some effort on my part.
Today has been one of the most enjoyable since I got my licence in 1967.  Thanks to everyone on this list for encouraging me.

I can beat that your reception report from Ipswich, Suffolk

All of 3kms away (whoa DX!!) but I just got my first WSPR report on 500kHz:

 2009-09-13 20:04   G3XBM   0.503908   -6   0   JO02dg   0.001   G6ALB   JO02dg   0   0 
 2009-09-13 20:02   G3XBM   0.503910   -12   -1   JO02dg   0.001   G6ALB   JO02dg   0   0 

At least the signal is getting across the fields at the back of the house. Andrew G6ALB is in the next village. You can see by my report that I have a LOT of work to do....
