I need ZK3 on 30m.  Was this April 16 activity on CW or RTTY?  Apparently the last couple of mornings they have only been on RTTY.

Need 'em on both 80 and 160. Nada so far. Sigh.

I managed to work ZK3N this afternoon on 12M for a nice CW bandfill.

The CW op was first rate !

They were on CW when I worked them, are on CW on 30M now, too.

Tnx, John!  I was in there calling for a while (way past my bedtime) but didn't get them.  They were working EU, JA, and a few NA stations.

Heard him on 15M last night, but he was out of the General band.  At least he is in the log book as one I heard.  More and more stations are becoming "heard only" but no contact now that sun spots are fading and pile ups are getting so much worse.

At least I will have the Extra by summer!

Just worked them on 10M SSB. He was working up 5-20. Took me a bit to figure out a pattern.

Also heard him on 10M but just could not get through.  Oddly, I could hear no one calling him but he was clear as a bell.

I'm finding these guys quite inaccessible.
The only time I am able to be on the radio and hearing them they are calling for Europe. I'm quite amazed at the extent of the pileups, given that Dick ZK3T gave it a good go a few months ago. I found him relatively easy to work 160 - 15 m. This evening the ZK3N CW pile was 25 kHz wide on 17 m!
The only band I need ZK3 on is 10 m, and the only mode needed is phone, so a 10 m SSB QSO would be my last tick in the box.

If it makes you feel any better, my schedule has been out of sync with theirs too :-). But I did get ZK3T on 3 bands in February, so I know things will line up eventually.

I agree with Luke, it seems to me that ZK3T did a much better job of "sharing the wealth".  As I posted before, I need 4 bands.  Based on the spots I've seen they are

- Never on those bands (i.e. 160M and 40M)

- Only on those bands when they're closed to NE US

- Only working EU (sems like most of the time)

- Not on the air at all (seems like an awful lot of the time - like right now)

73 All,

There have been many DXpeditions so far this year, that on the surface I had expected to be 100% EU-centric. But they made real concerted efforts to work NA and other areas on low bands and high bands, and I ended up working them on many (most, or all!) bands and multiple modes. Such huge success stories!
