Well even if your not using your QRP Rig doesn’t mean you cant have fun! Pretty simple to set up but here’s what you’ll need:

-QRP Radio (I’m using a Yaesu FT817ND)
-Android Phone or PDA running Android 3.0 or better
-Install WSPR Beacon software from the play store (Yes you have to spell it all out)
-Install time sync software (Clock Sync off of Play store)
-Interface Cable (WOLPHILINK Interface for Ham radio Digital Modes on Android PSK SSTV WSPR RTTY JT65) I bought mine off of EBay https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89j66bclx1w

Two great videos to help configure your WSPR Beacon app and FT817 Radio
