20m WSPR

Just turned on the FT-817, running 2W on 20m with WSPR. Very first transmission, here's the people who heard me:

Amazing. Minimum distance, 11,824km away, up to 15,745km. Gotta love WSPR.

Interesting, it must take a little time for reports to trickle in, there's a few more for the first transmission and then reports on a second.

At this point I've only heard 5 stations so clearly my reception is no where near as good as other stations'.

Incidentally, this is running on an Acer Aspire One netbook with an Atom processor running Ubuntu 12.04.
