They are NOT QRV.

You must have worked a Slim - they haven't even set up yet and are sleeping on the boat right now. I will announce QRV officially on VK0EK.ORG, and you will see calls listed in DXA when they are live.

 Shocked

It was very likely a pirate. I think it was starting to get dark shortly after their arrival. Their tents would likely be #1 priority, antennas will likely have to wait till their morning.

Never said I worked him, I heard the call and it was very weak, watery and had an echo in it.  It seems like Slim must be getting much more sophisticated  Grin

BTW several other people in the EU heard the station, and also seemed skeptical,  The odd thing was that I rotated the Beam I could hear the signal very weak from lots of different positions.  The strongest which was unfortunately still only barely audible was coming from the correct short path beam heading, but turning the beam only made the slightest of differences.  At that point I though it must be them.  Who ever it was they were not working DX but talking to someone in the EU.

From the VK0EK website:


3/22/2016 @ 22:13: 2016-03-22 14:46:15Z - Part of the team arrived on the island at 4 PM local time. When the sun comes up tomorrow they will start setting up the tents. That will take most of the day. So expect them on the air about 24 hours from now.

Looks like they'll be QRV just in time for my birthday. Working them would make a cool birthday present.

That sure would Jerry.  It will be icing on your birthday cake  Cheesy
Good luck.  I am ready, got my 40 meter antenna repaired today and hoisted it back
up.  Looks like 40 may be a best bet.

Everything fired up exactly as planned and tested. The team worked a very long and hard day. Amazing what they've done!
