Had a really fun QSO on 15M with just 100 watts and a Moxon. Broke a pretty big pileup - even though he gave me a 5 - 1 signal report.

However - Pauls signal was S9 and peaked at 20 over . . .

Big fun. No ATNO for me - just band slots - but big fun anyway.

Hi Guys, look for us on 10 or 12 meters long path at our sunset. 12 meters LP was really good last night.

Hi Paul..

The CW ops are doing a great job, but maybe you could ask them to QRS just a little..

I worked XZ1J on 20 CW but the polar flutter makes the copy a bit difficult.

Still no joy on 10m here (LP, shortly after our dawn -- starting 1200z roughly). Solar numbers look extremely good so colour me surprised. I'm seeing lots of spots and hearing callers 5-up but not even ESP from the team on 460, short or long path.

I was on 10 meters SSB, the band was good, working Middle East, EU and the Caribbean. I worked K6ND, AA1V and a few others when both 10 and 12 meters closed up.  I had hoped we would have a great east coast run like we did last night on 12 meters but the band went away. Will try again tomorrow.

I'll be there waiting. Seriously, Flux of 177, SSN of 282, plus low Ap and Kp values, I'm surprised the band wasn't on fire. The S2 was marginal on 12m CW as well. Definitely better longpath, though.

The S2 was pretty weak here in North Carolina LP this AM. Did you get him this morning on 12m. No luck here

XZ1J has been a lot easier to work so far.

Great signal 1600utc in CO 20 meters both SSB and CW this AM on my vertical.  Just no way I'm breaking a pileup of that magnitude yet...

Paul I was out this morning. I could not hear XZ on 12 or 10M. I did hear S2 on 12M CW. He was weak on my mobile vertical. Strangely I worked BZ4 on first call just lower of the S2 signal.

Let's hope for better LP conditions tomorrow.

Nope, though not through a lack of trying. I have an S7 noise level on the higher bands now for some reason, plus they were weak as dishwater and had a pileup of Europeans deep enough to block daylight. All in all, a thorough waste of a dawn on this end.

I got them on 20 CW. Man, I usually don't post anything about operating practice on the cluster but I had reached my limit. It seemed as though a TON of people were transmitting and not operating split... So I posted a spot about it, and the next one accused me of posting a stupid spot (the ham that posted it didn't even have the balls to use his own callsign).

But anyway, in ClubLog the QSO is there, so I'm good.

Congrats!  And you are sure right about the knuckleheads today.  Between the jammers and the ops that just keep calling incessantly = yikes.

Listened last evening, this morning, and this afternoon..... I checked EVERY SPOT on EVERY BAND, from EVERYWHERE........... NOT A WHISPER. I probably have 24 hours of LISTENING since they went QRV.  My ears are tired. hi hi

Granted, I am using a vertical, but I have Bhutan, Laos, Nepal, India, Vietnam, etc, etc. CONFIRMED.  It is not the antenna.  Bands are REALLY NOISY here, and the guys at Bangladesh and Myanmar have just been too weak to beat the noise.  Maybe it will get better. If not, so be it.  I did not have high expectations for either.

GL to all who need them..  73, Gene AF3Y

I just worked them barefoot on my vertical on 20m ssb.  I'm still in total shock.  According to VOACAP that QSO was in the dark dark blue with about zero probability of happening.  Maybe I worked Slim, or I took too much cold medicine and am dreaming.
