Just wondering as to everyone's contact/attempted contact experience with the Glorioso Dxped. They go thru all the time & trouble to activate it and are immediately faced with "idiotas"..

There's a temporary insanity that seems to be contagious at the onset of every expedition to a truly rare entity.  Let's hope for some decent propagation and a decent chance for everyone who needs this entity.

Relax, and don't stir anything by drawing attention to the jammers.

I have DJ5SI/FR/G worked with my 20 meter dipole years ago and probably some other Glorioso contacts. 3B8CF from nearby Mauritius booms in on 40 CW (7.005) many evenings. For limited stations 40 meter CW is always a good bet.

On 40 SSB, they may use split operation from way down the band.  Looks like they'll be running 800 watts to verticals on 40.

Anyone hear anything? (They've been there 2 days)..

Are they actually there?..

Hey, is that Ashton Kutcher over there?..Have we been "Punk'd"?

I hope they do transmit B4 they leave in October..

Just kidding!

Today is probably the day!

Does anyone, maybe someone who knows French, know what this means?

"However, know that four times a day, the crew must stop the transmissions
around 04h00, 09h00, 16h00 and 17h00 UTC, for control, especially of the AC
supplies, by the Chief of maintenance crew and members."

Will they make short interruptions at these odd times or shut down for hours to save fuel (and noise)?

The latest:

"September 16, 2009 (10:30 UTC)

This morning, after a very windy night the operators discovered that the V40 was broken in 2 pieces (it has been repaired), the V80 was slightly bent but
also repaired. The WARC Spiderbeam had a faulty contact (fixed), 5 band Spiderbeam is ok.

All three stations are installed, tuned and correctly configured.

This afternoon (their time!), they will setup the V160 and K9AY. Hopefully they got precious help from the Glorioso military. This will allow to certain op to operate. All three stations will be back on air as soon as the third Spiderbeam will be erected. Tonight (their time), two
stations will be actives for the whole night.

73's de Didier, F5OGL - Gloriosos 2009 team leader"


   Ummm?..That's All Folks!...

Tom,

Didn't you post a U-Tube of them working ssb?  I need a cw contact on any band and a rtty would be nice as well.  I already have ssb from years ago.  They have had ssb on both 20 and 15 today but no prop for me so far.

Yeah..It was a test posted by a EU op I think. I saw today they were sporadically working SSB on 15 & 20M. I get home about 2000 UTC..we'll see if their single generator is still working, or it's "Another Lidsville Valley Thursdaaaaay" or. a typhoon has scoured the island..or ..they've decided for some reason, known only to The Grand Pubah, to switch back over to CW and send at 60WPM. Look's like on 20M they were working up without saying how far..and they were going up like anywhere from 5 to 30, etc...nice spread.

I'll figure it out one way or another. I'll probably check into Lidsville this evening..or Heaven Forbid..this weekend when even my beagle & my wife's yorkie will be in there...

I also could wait till they're just about QRT..and throw my call in..I'll be known as "The Last Contact"

September 18th,  21:45 H, got home and right on 30 meters, FT5GA was S2 but readable, lids all over him with every sort of QRM imaginable. Very workable when the QRM was off for about the next hour, then faded down to unworkable levels on my vertical. The lids are determined to make everyone suffer here. I'm totally lost on the whole activity.  I don't think the cops understand that lids pay no attention to what they say.
