WSPR Symbol Generation Utility For Compound Callsigns With 6 Digit Locator (new)
This is a self-contained utility that, in one go, will generate a text file for use with PIC assemblers. The utility will generate either conventional callsign/4 digit locator or compound callsign/6 digit locator data. Compound callsign generation follows K1JT’s convention of a three or less letter/number combination prefix followed by a “/”. A one letter or two number suffix may be used preceded by a “/”.
Arduino Mega 2560 & DDS60 WSPR/QRSS Signal Source v3.0 (updated)
This project provides a collection of features to use as a basis for a complete WSPR/QRSS beacon.
The project includes:
1 Watt 30 Meter SSB WSPR Transceiver
This is a direct conversion SSB transmitter/receiver designed specifically for 30M WSPR communications. A single 10.140 MHz crystal is used for the sideband filter. Although simple in design, it competes favorably with far more sophisticated transceivers.
Multi-band DDS WSPR Signal Source
This project outlines a PC-less multi-band DDS WSPR signal source that uses a Microchip 16F628A PIC and an American QRP Club DDS-60 VFO. It is capable of 6 through 160 meter operation. Single band operation or multi band transmit scanning may be selected.
Multi-band DDS WSPR Signal Source Using
NMEA GPS Timing
This is the same as the DDS WSPR signal source described above but uses GPS NMEA timing instead of GPS 1 pps timing. This version only uses bands 40, 30, 20, 17, 12, and 10 meters (the bands that I can autotune).
WSPR VCXO Controller
A WSPR controller using pulse width modulation (PWM) to derive narrow-band 4-FSK modulation from a voltage controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO).
This project provides ‘on chip’ generation of WSPR message; internal timing or NMEA GPS timing for UTC synchronization of WSPR transmissions; ‘on-the-fly’ GPS generation of grid square location for portable operation; pulse width modulation output; symbol data output; and low power consumption allowing battery operation
Arduino Uno & DDS-60/AD9850 WSPR/QRSS Controller v1.0
This project provides a collection of features to use as a foundation to build a WSPR/QRSS beacon.
NMEA GPS, WWVB or independent timing for UTC synchronization of WSPR and QRSS transmissions.
- 6 thru 160 meter operation.
Single band operation or coordinated frequency hopping for multi-band WSPR transmissions.
16x2 LCD display of frequency, time, time source, and transmit mode.
Reconfigurable time slot control to schedule WSPR and/or QRSS transmissions.
QRSS Morse FSK plus 12 graphical pattern options
UNO_DDS60_v1_1.pde Installation Notes
UNO_DDS60_v1_1.pde was developed under Arduino-0022 but can be compiled under Arduino 1.0. UNO_DDS60_v1_1.pde requires two additional library files, MSTimer and StopWatch.
MsTimer information is located here.
The StopWatch information is here.
Be sure to use StopWatch version 0.1.03 or later as earlier versions are not compatible with Arduino 1.0
WWVB / DCF WSPR VCXO Controller for the
G0XAR/G0UPL QRSS Transmitter Kit
A $15 QRSS transmitter kit and a WWVB or DCF receiver provide a simple and inexpensive way to build a PC-less WSPR beacon.

WSPR Audio Signal Source
Unshackle your portable SSB QRP transceiver from your computer to transmit WSPR beacons from a portable location, or use your home station as a PC-less beacon. This project uses a Microchip 16F628A PIC to control a simple audio oscillator.
WSPR Audio Signal Source v3.0
This is an updated version of the WSPR Audio Signal Source that includes on-chip generation of WSPR message and ‘on-the-fly’ GPS generation of grid square location for portable operation.
This project uses the PIC-EL http://www.kangaus.com/picel_iii.htm and a DDS-60 http://www.amqrp.org/kits/dds60/ to generate WSPR beacons. This is a modification of AA0ZZ’s excellent signal generator program that features 160 – 6 meter operation, LCD readout, internal timing, VFO control, and a frequency calibration routine in software.
PIC-EL WSPR Using NMEA GPS Timing
This is the same as the Pic-El WSPR program described above but uses GPS NMEA timing instead of internal timing. This version also adds a UTC time display.
