I worked Z81X on 2013-05-02 at 03:22:18. Pretty strong on my vertical out here in Nevada. I was surprised there was no thread on them. Am I missing something?  Grin

Oh yea, they matched me in Clublog already.

I worked them a couple of minutes after you did. The bands had been terrible all day, so I really had no hope that I'd get them. Still, I put my temporary wire antenna in the air and worked them on the first call.

Sometimes things just work out. That will be number 257.

Both these guys and the other guy there right now have great signals into the Midwest. Glad to see the activity!  And yes the bands were pretty bad most of yesterday.

I've been seeing spots for them, but never quite lined up my actual on-air activity to work them.

Yesterday night.... Your mid afternoon they were the weakest I had heard them. They were still a solid 5/7 here but they had a few more skips to make it to you.

Schweet. Worked Marttii easily - testing new antenna with just 100 watts.

This is the first time I have ever heard South Sudan S9+ and worked him with just a call or two.

Of course, SSN = 150 is a tad better than what it has been for several years going back.

They were S9+20 here (NorCal) on 20m late this afternoon and I worked them on the 2nd call.

Dumb question about Z81X:

Are they mostly or exclusively doing phone?

I know it's hardly definitive... but I haven't heard them on CW and they haven't had a single reversebeacon spot.

Here's some info from their QRZ.COM page:

"The good news is that Olli can be found regularly on CW following peak propagation openings specifically to Japan and USA, others duties permitting. Here's a list of frequencies that will get you closer to those band pointers:

 10107, 18075, 14030, 21030, 24895 and 28030 kHz"

Great ears there at Z81X that managed to pull my signal out of the pile-up on 20m today.

Will this go to LotW? Their QRZ page says no, although they are loading to Clublog, and the QSL manager, OH0XX uses LotW.

And, why isn't South Sudan in the LotW "all entities" list? Are they (ARRL) just behind on the entries or has something gone awry with the DXCC status?

"Southern Sudan" is listed as deleted.

Yeah -- sorry. "Republic of South Sudan" is listed. Still interested to know if it will go to LotW.
