Not at all.  He was a good op in the simulation, just as I have heard him on the air.

I "worked" my first eHam DX forum regular on "Pileup Runner" today.  It was Paul, K3STX.  I use the call P5NK in the simulation.  Sorry, Paul, that it wasn't the real thing!

That's funny when that happens.  Hopefully he wasn't one of the virtual lids.

That is funny. It really is fun to compare MorseRunner in "non-QRM/QSB" mode vs. "QRM/QRN/QSB/lids". What a difference.

....me.  You'd think people would have KP2 in their logs on 15, but this afternoon's pile was bigger than I anticipated.  Shocked  For a moment I thought about going split, but decided against it.

BAD band conditions? I could NOT tell because D-STAR was WIDE OPEN from my shack to just about EVERYWHERE in the world & everyone waited for their turn as they should EVERYWHERE but they don't as we all know.Some people just can't understand why the DX stations get mad at them or won't answer them when they are calling 4's ONLY & they keep answering with their 5,6,or other number call signs.Wonder sometimes if some of these people actually hear the DX stations at all ? A really GOOD thing about D-STAR is NOBODY is EVER tuning up on the DX stations. Wink   Grin   Smiley

I'm sure W4KVW's comments about D-STAR(TM) were tongue-in-cheek, but what exactly does constitute "DX" on D-STAR, Echolink, IRLP, CQ100, etc? Perhaps the length of the Internet circuit?
My Internet connection is via two-way satellite. Maybe I could claim any Internet-interconnected DX QSOs for Satellite DXCC?
Back on topic, what pileups for "ordinary" DX did we find today? I scanned quickly through 20 m phone this afternoon, and found pileups on VK and ZL stations.

All I know is that anybody that can program and use a D-Star radio deserves DXCC no matter who they work.

Just trying to lighten the mood guys & D-STAR just keeps things going when the REAL DX is resting.I am a DX chaser myself & YES the bands have been BAD for a while.South America appears to always be open from here in North Florida & just about every day for over a week even on 6 meters.If 6 meters would just give up a single KL7 that is still in Alaska I think I would almost cry from being so happy for finally getting that WAS on the "MAGIC BAND" but I'm not holding my breath. {:>)   Cheesy
