This one cannot even be compared to XX9 which appears to have been a dipole QRP Dxped
The A5A signals are very readable on my 3ele yagi. We got them on 17m SSB yesterday and
later on i believe we have them on 17m cw as well. Hope they get their logs online soon. Did not
want to call a second time on CW just to ensure an insurance contact.
Hopeful to get more bands in the next few days from A5A.
But for giggles, i was switching over to my dipole when they were on 17m cw. They were
not workable on the dipole, but a good copy on 3ele yagi even though the S-meter did not move
Good luck and some patience. We believe the smaller stations will be able to work them in the
next few days, provided they are able to control the EU stations, when there are openings to
NA/SA and they stay on 17m and 15m(focus on getting unique calls versus handing out bandfills).
