Here is something to watch - If your bored.

Dear Members,

 

Here is another “UNIQUE” use of Amateur Radio.   The voyage of the sailing boat “MY DREAM” from  New Zealand to Seattle, Washington just started.  They have a U3S WSPR/QRSS transmitter putting out 2 watts to a vertical dipole mounted on the after hand rail transmitting about every 20minutes.   You can watch their progress as they sail back to the USA.  

Here is the website URL: http://qrp-labs.com/mydream.html   There is a interesting part of the website showing the installation of the U3S and the GPS module.   But that is an awfully small sailboat.   

 

Something to watch while the bands are dead. 

 

Take care and have fun.
