VK1UN's VGA dongle WSPR spotted in two states

Ross, VK1UN, based in Victoria has been generating WSPR RF using the Weaver method in GNURadio and transmitting with an FL2K VGA dongle acting as a D/A. Naturally, he's using a nifty low pass filter and antenna tuner.

On 40m over night here I spotted him in New South Wales and he was also spotted in Tasmania.

Not bad for an $8 transmitter into a G5RV on a city block.
