ATNO for me.

It will be interesting to see if I can hear them on 160m FT8.

I worked F5FHI/9U a couple of times back in the 90's but the DXCC credit was later withdrawn due to a paperwork issue.  This will be my first chance since then for a do-over.  The MDXC guys do a fine job so it shouldn't be a problem picking them up for an ATNOA (All Time New One Again)  Cheesy

John....VE8?  are you really that far north?.....BRRRRRR!!!!....Like you I worked the F5FHI/9U operation back then & was considerably honked off when I learn it was a "no documentation filed" situation that didn't count....Later on I worked 9U7T from 2011....did you not get the opportunity for that one?.....from what I recall, conditions were good at the time and it was not all that difficult to get....

I don't recall the exact circumstances but that year I just had a little non-resonant vertical up.  9U is straight over the pole from here, it's likely that I didn't even try...

9U4U was the operation that gave me a lot of QSO's from 80m though to 12m in Feb 2013.

They must just have a temporary station on the air while they set up the rest of the kit.  Even the Europeans are having a hard time hearing them right now.  I bet they'll have it firing on all cylinders by this time tomorrow, at least for the high bands.

Worked 9U4M for ATNO today, on 20 CW & 30 CW.  But they sounded like 10mW.   Grin
DST index is now -100 and Kp=6, so it will be hard for us in the north a few days.

I got an answer on 20m CW with one call... BUT he got my call slightly wrong by one dit. Signal was very weak with slight fading, and I thought he got it corrected. Nope... next upload I found the busted call has the QSO (not currently issued). I wonder what it will take to get that fixed.  Undecided

I listened over the pole on their 20m CW frequency all day and never heard a peep except for the occasional VFO-challenged caller. 
No sweat, the electric overcast will clear up for the weekend and they're there for another week at least.
