They had a very strong signal this morning on 80 meters.  Worked them at about 0950Z.

They had a very strong signal this morning on 80 meters.  Worked them at about 0950Z. 

And I came along almost an hour and half later and still a huge signal! I also took a quick listen before I went out the front door and they were still pounding in well after my sunrise.

I'm hoping this means we have a chance at 160M too, we still have most of a week!

Worked them on 80 this morning for #251 on the band.   Nice signal.

If no one is doing it that way, there is a probably a very good reason.

Yes I was calling them on 40m FT8 this morning when they QSY'ed to 160m. It was well after my sunrise and no copy on 160m for me.  I could see a few NA callers on 160m.


I worked them on 15m FT8 last night but nothing has shown up in the log so maybe it was a pirate.

I was there also Tom, but no joy! Good catch.

At last, ten metres opened through to VK3 this afternoon!

I arrived home and turned on the radio and found I could actually hear the op on 28395. This end of the spectrum has been hammered by the geomagnetic storm, and I thought I might miss this band.

So, you NA ops have all been enjoying the African DXpeditions whilst we have missed out.

I will take the opportunity to brag a little about this small milestone.
Nine bands and three modes for VK9MA.

Finally worked them on something. Caught them on 20m FT8 this morning. What a nightmare....

I still want to get at least 1 SSB and 1 RTTY Q in the log. We'll see how that pans out.

Worked on both 40m and 80m CW this morning.  Smiley  Very patient crew doing a good job.

Also nabbed C21JY on 40m CW for a new one on 40m.

Worked them on 20CW in spite of the poor propagation from NE Illinois.  What surprised me was the lack of poor ops TXing on their calling freq and the usual other BS that goes on.  Perhaps the twits were elsewhere bothering someone else.

Perhaps the twits couldn't hear, either.

Or, perhaps the DXpedition, having proven it can create rate, has once again discouraged them.

Take your pick.

I also worked them on FT8 15M (and 20M) but both have not shown up in their log.  I don't think it was a pirate.  I wonder if their FT8 log requires a "73" exchange to be valid?

The twits throw themselves at the African DXpeditions. They got all worn out from 3C0L/3C1L and whatever they have left is being expended against 9U4M.

When there's no dxpedition on phone, the twits will go to CW and QRM those operations (usually by being unable to correctly key FU, UP, and LID). But when 9U4M is on phone the twits CANNOT RESIST.
