He was definitely workable here, but I just couldn't break the pile with 200W.  Not an ATNO for me, but would have been a nice band fill.

Listened a bunch...Never heard him.

I AM confident, one of these days, I WILL snag him.

Mont Athos band fills are the best band fills.

He's back!  Same frequency. Same great signal.  I am too starting to think that his German friend is the one I worked yesterday. Two days in a row is unpresidented.

Well, I hope his German friend is keen enough to QRV again tomorrow.
A couple of VKs worked him early this evening, before I got home from work. Missed the chance by an hour. By the time I got in front of radio, it was well and truly dark and all high bands had closed.
This is one of the most frustrating entities "active". I have worked all of Europe on several bands, but this one remains outstanding.
Pleased for you NA guys to have had a good chance to work this one.

I understand your frustration. My wife has heard me complain about his "activity" enough that when I got through working him. I came out of the shack told her, and she said. "You finally got the Monk. Now stop complaining about him". 

I think she was a relieved as I was happy!

.....
I second that... After 2 attempts with an SAE and Greek postage (wrong on my part as SV/A has its own stamps as I recall), 5 clams and an SAE got my QSL in about a month's time!

Frank, W1NK

Just put in the mail my QSL with SAE and GS for my qso earlier this week.

Now, the wait begins!

Working Europe now. I can't hear him, nor European stations.
Again too late for VK. The geomagnetic conditions don't help, either.
He was on again this morning around 2100z, so will set alarm for tomorrow and hope for a short path QSO.
At least we have an operator at Mt Athos for a change.

Sounds like a SERIOUS RX problem there, Bill.  Have you got a lot of QRN, or just a deaf antenna?? Apollo has been loud here in Florida on the wire vertical for a couple days now.

I think Bill lives in a mobile home park with a lot of line noise, and low antennas.

I have been working the WPX contest since friday evening.
I am not hearing much out of Eastern Europe or the
Eastern Med. Not even the Italians, who are always
SWARMING in contests.

No Poland (ok, one SP4), Greece, Lithuania, Romania etc.
The elevated A & K indicies do have an effect,
but it shouldn't be THAT bad.
I even got several JA's this morning on 20m.

It should pick up as the day progresses and the A-K settle down,
BUT will SV2ASP/A still be there.

THAT is the BAZILLION DOLLAR QUESTION !

I am in a mobile home park, have LOTS of strange noises
and CRAPPY antennas. That doesn't help either !~

That's my last DXCC in Europe mobile. I have heard /A several times, but can never break the pile. Sometimes the sig is S7.

Saturday I was out too late for a morning QSO. I checked 18080 again while out at 1900Z. Just in/out of noise
mobile in Texas. I gave some calls though. You never know when there might be an upswing in the skip. Another nada I am afraid.

In fact I heard almost no EU yesterday. Really stink o radio conditions.

Wrong time posted for yesterday. It was about 2100Z. Likely the signal was stronger here at an earlier time.
