If it's any consolation, he was as weak as water last night on my 5 elements at 87 1/2 feet too....probably too high for 10m.

Trevor is down to his last 14 Days of operation:

http://www.qrz.com/db/vk0th

But it sounds like he is really trying to give the deserving a new one. I hope everyone who needs it gets in the log. I would like a few new bandfills but I was happy just working him on 15 meters a few months ago.

Can anyone give me a hint as to when and where I should listen?  I'm on the east coast and can do ssb, digital modes.  He says he is on 0600 on.  Thanks

Yes, thanks to Trevor for giving any of us a chance.



I got half a RTTY qso on 40m yesterday morning.  Tongue

He heard me, I heard him, he didn't hear my reply due to............conditions beyond my control in the pileup.

I did manage a PSK31 qso last night on 10m. I don't do PSK much, I think that was PSK qso #7 all time.

Followed that up with a good RTTY qso this morning on 40m.

With the exception of 40m RTTY, the bands/times I've worked Trevor, he has not had much of a pileup.



Good luck if you're still chasing him.

He was on 10m psk @:01:00 last night for a bit.

He has also been on 40m the last couple of mornings, either ssb, cw or RTTY, from around 09:00 to 11:00 or so.

Look him up on qrz and read the info there, probably your best source, as his log is live.

 Searching his call on dxsummit will give you the last gabillion spots.

 If you can copy him any at all, give it a try. He hears very well, and will stick with you trying.

Good luck.

FINALLY!  My 40 meter CW QSO of this morning is in Trevor's log!
I honestly was not sure, but as someone said above, he really stuck with me, and I heard my call one or two letters at a time over two or three times. I made sure he heard my signal report back to him and I repeated it three times. I wrote the QSO info down on a scrap of paper, with a little question mark by it. FINALLY! It is in the log!
Probably one of the toughest QSOs that I have made. I gotta quit complaining about the 6BTV. It gets it done! Sure does feel good.....  Cheesy Cheesy  73, Gene AF3Y

Got the E51M on 10m CW around 2030Z a couple days ago. I already had 2 or 3 different North Cooks, so no biggie, but I like to try for at least one contact from a new expedition.  Gene AF3Y
