Oh boy...... Look at their proposed operating frequencies http://www.tn2t.be/ .  Right below Malpelo freqs I think. This could really end up being a cluster foxtrot of major proportions when both groups get active... Huh  Gene AF3Y

Looks like these guys should be QRV some time tomorrow.  I sure hope the frequency usage does not become a fiasco Huh  I would like to work them on a couple band fills too!  73, Gene AF3Y

Got em on 20M but I have to say this is one of the few dxpedition I have a complaint about.
The op on 18.132Mhz at 18:00 Zulu is not following any procedures, he identifies himself after every 20 or so contacts and  does not even bother to say QRZ or anything else after finishing with a contact, so what you get is a loud roar of non stop chatter 5-15 above his frequency.  All these short cuts in procedures are to make more contacts , but it is now out of hand.  The Ironic part is that the same OP then complains about the non stop QRM and how he needs to spend so much extra time fishing a contact out of the QRM.  IMO in the end he has lost any QSO number gains he might have thought he made by cutting down on the procedures.

Have not tried them on SSB, and probably wont, as I have them confirmed on phone. Their CW operators have been GREAT!!  Plenty of IDs and UPs!   Grin  Gene

Just curious if anyone from the Left coast is working them? I listened for them last night on 40M CW and not a peep, but all I have is a rotatable dipole on that band. I'm hoping they are workable on the higher frequencies when I can use the beam.

Heard them last night 20m cw (4el tribander, 10m high) , very workable, but couldn't break pile up.

They have had a raging pileup on 20m RTTY for about 3 hours now.

 Still going strong, S-9+ here @01:48

I heard a few W6's get through earlier when I was in it, @23:30.

I sent them an email, with a link to HK0NA's frequency plan, the op who got it said he will forward it on to them.

It's a shame when the DX op does a poor job of managing his end and contributes to the confusion. It really makes you appreciate the many good ops that have been on the various expeditions over the years. But on the other hand, if the guy paid his own way to be there, who are we to complain?

Got them on 12m CW. They were not strong, but I am sure I was weaker to them. I have no amp for 12m and using a dipole for 15m. I also got VP6T the same way.

I starting to love 12m.

I got them as well this morning on 12 meter CW. They really stuck with me verifying the contact. Smiley

Last year my 12 meter LOTW count was 12. It is now 36. This on a Radio Works CW40 wire up about 30 feet.
