I had another commitment last night so may have missed the best time to work him on 40M. 3B9 was MUCH stronger
in east Texas. Did snag A71CM from the mobile for a "new one on 40M'. Yet again I could not get A92IO.

Say I checked Darko's online log with calls of guys doing the spotting. Some had 3 QSO's with him on ONE band !
I thought he stated his mike connector was broken and only had CW ? So all are CW ? Insurance QSO's I guess. Can't hear their reports ?

Yep, same here. One thing for sure his band selection hasn't been too favorable to those of us on the West Coast. However if I can't work Darko, I hope to work the club station he setup when he was there. It's very nice of him to be the Ham Radio ambassador Smiley

Last night around 0000 to 0100 UTC, Darko was workable on the West Coast. He was on twenty meters CW.

Since I have been enjoying sunrise openings to Darko on 12, 15 and 17 and having heard him briefly on 10 meters at sunrise 2 days ago (he QSY'd to 12 meters before I could get off a call)... I went out just before sunrise this morning (Sunday) and cranked up one of my towers (nested from tornadoes and 75mph straight line winds yesterday).

Darko was on 28.000.20 listening up and I could hear some Europeans calling him up 1 to 3. He came up out of the noise and I worked him on a peak at 1304z (up 28002.1) I am simply amazed at how proficient Darko is and how well that he hears... considering the noisy environment he is setup in. GL all!

Still nada here in Texas. MS must be the W5 hot spot. I barely could copy Q3 on 20 CW yesterday. The best I have heard him was Q4 on 40 CW. Today on 17M hardly a peep with S zero noise and preamp on.

Eric 3B9 consistently stronger on every band. Today is first time he was spotted that I could not hear him. That was 12M. Bands seem worse today than yesterday.

I was hearing EU on 12M yesterday, and none (few) today.

15M was good yesterday to Asia.

Sorry to hear that Tony. I have had exceptional sunrise propagation to that part of the world.  Darko is on 15 CW 21.092.00 up 1 to 3 at 1943z (2-19). He is about S2 Q5 and calling CQ. I hope that you and the rest of the guys needing him get through today! GL.

Oh well. Last night I was with my wife on a Valentines getaway at the Davenport Hotel here in Spokane. There are priorities, and I know mine Smiley

I was out and found him, but he was weak. I was on the way to the lake. A nice day. I was monitoring the freq and he was coming up. Just about a real Q5. Then he was gone. When I got to the lake I looked for him again, and found him very weak on 20M. I don't know if I got through on 15M. I wished I had stopped for him when he started peaking. But then I didn't know he would QRT 15M.

I was in your neighborhood around New Year's. I was in the pickup, so I had RADIO. The YF usually disapproves. I could tell the skip, and bands are different there near the coast. Any signals NE, East, SE seemed much stronger than here.

I never heard Darko "loud" but I heard him on 7 bands Q5. 10, 12, 15 and 17 were all sunrise openings. He was workable later in the morning on a few of these bands. 30, 40 and 20 had propagation that one would expect. Darko has operated from Somalia many times over the years and he does have plans to return again so hope springs eternal. I hope that you made it on 15 Tony! GL!
