Listening to the 4W operation makes me sick.

Just a bunch of stupid American hams who call on his frequency,  call over one another, and are just plain rude, frequency cops, jammers, and other assorted morons.

Many of you idiots are Extra Class license holders, which means you're Extra-lites who have no idea what you're doing or you're just plain stupid.

Just a sign of the times. 

20 meters is the new 11 meters.

Seventy Thirds,

The best I have heard them was 30M this morning. A true S5-S7 on my mobile.

Yes, they were loud, but unfortunately had to leave for work! Hopefully tomorrow morning they will repeat on either 30 or 40.

The small while I was in there this morning there was minimal interference.

Now I need a SSB QSO on any band.

73 and good DX Tony


Have you listened around 23:00 - 01:00 or so on 12m/10m Tony?

They have been 5/5-7 several times from the mobile in central Texas on 12m/10m.

 12m cw is the only band I've gotten through on /m.

Tom I did listen last evening, but it was 0100 - 0200 and not much signal. I called a few times on SSB anyway, but got the expected result. No QSO.
 I have been on a trip for nearly all of the time the 4W operation started.

Surprised 20M has been so poor.

And now all/most of the 30m QSOs from their online log seem to have disappeared...!

I wouldn't worry, if they were in the main log then they are backed up and safe. What worries me are the 1000 contacts that never made it into the Log, they have not said anything further on that.

It isn't just the 30m Qs.  The Club Log is all hosed up.  Every time I make a new band/mode it seems to displace a previous contact.  Same thing yesterday, but they eventually got it straightened out.  No so today.  Several of my QSOs are missing. Huh

Got them on 30 myself this morning

I hear tomorrow may be the last day, and i would *love* to get them.  30 meters is probably my best shot since I have no amp and just a multi band inverted vee...  What time(s) were they on 30m and what freq?   (I will get up tomorrow morning and look for them...)

thanks and 73.

I worked them yesterday on 30m at 2150z from Atlanta. There have been consistent openings late afternoon. Also have heard them from sunrise for several hours (1000z to 1300z) Good luck!

Geez, I woke up before sunrise, looked on my computer and saw their last spot on 30CW was about 15 min before I got there. They seem to have been on 30CW for about 30 mins, went to 160CW (one spot, I heard NOTHING), and now I see spots for them on 15CW (at Sunrise here).
Gotta take kid to baseball soon, oh well. I guess tonights sunset is my last try. A TINY bit frustrating, I'm getting pretty tired.

Did the same thing you did. Got up around 0900z,  listened everywhere they were spotted, couldn't hear them. Heard Henk (VK2GWK) on 30m but not a thing out of 4W6A.

Waited until the sun came up, the situation didn't change, so I went back to bed.

Oh well.

No luck with the 40m ssb pile up this morning, but did manage to get through on 80 cw.

I was about an hour late for 30m.
