There are some countries I would like to work particularily on 75 meters. I am not talking major Dx but some S. American countries and such. How does one go about setting up a sked to work someone in a needed DX country?

I can think of many ways, but two that are pretty obvious and don't cost anything include:

-Work 'em first on 20m and ask if they can work 75m; if so, set up a sked for a few hours later, same day.

-Listen for needed new countries on 75m and if you can't raise them, look 'em up in buck.com or QRZ.com or anywhere you can and send 'em e-mails, telling them you heard them already and asking for skeds.

I don't spend a lot of time on 75m, but in my snooping around for 3Y0X on Peter I, stumbled across a lot of DX I didn't realize was pretty much always there (at night)...
