Got them tonight on 12m at 8PM local time in Montreal Quebec. No pile up that I could hear  but they were s9+.
I moved up a few khz and tried some cq's but no takers.  Makes you wonder, whether the high bands are actually no good after dusk or people just assume so don't go on the air.

They cannot hear me, even with 100W. I practically give up.

I was going to give up, since i tried several times before, but then 2 days ago and today, they just hopped out. I'm using 100w and a cushcraft r6000. Everytime I think I need an amp, I get through!

I'm only using 100w too and I
have them on 6 band/mode combinations so far.
Antennas are a simple Hustler 4BTV vertical
and a homemade 130' doublet at about 25 feet agl.

10-15-20 & 40 phone
10 & 12 CW

You give up too easy.

Yeah, keep trying! I've got 10,12,15, and 20 on SSB, 17 RTTY.  100 watts and an inverted vee @ 43'.

Tried again on 30 tonight but he's working other continents it seems.  He's very strong into my QTH, but not hearing me.  Will try again tomorrow.

I'm listening to him now on 30m RTTY.
He is so-so but sure isn't hearing me.
The K index has climbed to 4, not good for DX.

To add insult...There are several IDIOTS that do not understand "UP"

T32C was on 160 RTTY this morning. Started about 0930z on 1810.1 and then went up to 1815.2 working up 1. Several of us got through.

.... they were s9+.

ABSOLUTELY true.   The other day I was driving to work, half-hour before daylight, and 15meters sounded totally dead.  I gave a few CQs and a ZL came back to me, good signal.   We were the only traffic on 15 that I heard, but obviously the band was open between K4 and ZL.

I've actually worked the T32C group on a few duplicate bands/modes, I think--I keep hearing them with great signal strength and fairly low traffic, and I couldn't resist a few contacts that will probably be dupes.  Those guys have given out a TON of QSOs; really well-run operation!

If you have something even close to resonant on 12m you should be able to get them easily today on CW. I'm listening to them on a badly mis-tuned antenna and they're still S7, down to S4 off the side of the wrong yagi (10-15-20m yagi, turned North-northwest). If you can't get through with 100W and a minimal antenna it's definitely time to check your setup!

Edited to add: I just worked them QRP 5W with two calls as of 1700z. granted, I *was* using my small 2-el WARC yagi to do it, but then again it was also only 5W.

I just worked them on 12m CW using 75w and a 15m dipole. They were begging. I doubt I could crack a pileup this way.

I finally bagged him twice on 15M! Once on 100W and about 15 minutes later on 5W QRP.

Ding dong, the witch is dead !

Just got them on 12M - 24.910 (up one) - there's hardly any pile up. He's even calling CQ - go get him!

I worked them on 10, 12, and 15 within about 10 minutes with 100 watts through a vertical. They were S5+ on all bands and I didn't have to call more than twice two get them on any band.

All the operators I've heard for T32C have been top notch.
