Please post your success and heartbreak stories here.  GL to all.

Currently I'm in a school bus with fifty fourth graders.  Knowing what the pileups will be like on the first day I don't miss my radio, yet.

My Optibeam was just delivered by the shipper

I'm in work 12hr shift till Saturday evening then minding the baby till Tuesday morning and back in work Wednesday at 7am, for 4 more 12hr shifts,

Still havn't worked out how to build and install the antenna reinstall my 40/30m rotary dipole, and try to actually get time to try to work the guys Huh?

I'm not going to miss these guys like I did E3 no matter what I have to do to get a single QSO,

As I said elsewhere, my array is pointed, radio and amp are on, clusters set, alarms tested. Bring it.

Looks like they have a 20m station up and running for their night

I see my 20m prop peaking around 00:30 GMT this evening.   I may give them a call then but the first day will most likely be a total madhouse.

If a pile-up breaks out, you'll probably have more mature company than us

Note the qrg... I ignored the spot as soon as I saw 14.195. Nobody, especially a EU based dxped, would use that qrg.

Hey, if it turns out I can't work them, I think I may have to perform a DXorcism!

He picked the right time because the Pope just blessed all the Exorcists. 

However, his problem isn't Lucifer. His problem is using any antenna made by MFJ/Cushcraft!!  Also, if he's still using a Cantenna his amplifier isn't big enough.

Hi,

The pileups on 17 and 20 meters are an unruley mess. I'll wait a few days for the feeding frenzy to end, and in a week they will be "old hat".

I just worked him on 20 phone.  His signal is a true 58.

Congrats on Honor Roll Peter!!  I listened for a while on 15, and decided to wait for Monday.  This weekend aint gonna get any better.  The usual scumbags are there making QRM. Plus, I am still happy from working the XX9 Grin.

By the way, A BUNCH of DXers worked the 5R on 28.035 without listening.  They wont be in the FT4TA log, that's for sure.
Happens every time. hi hi

I heard you get him..great job.


I got him about 30 minutes later. I thought he came back to me and I waited for his second call which was then completely obliterated by loud lids on his frequency. I dropped my call back in once again and he came back to me with my report. Now I have the long wait for the on line log..hi hi
