The Italian 6O guys are getting spotted.

Too soon to draw and conclusions save the fact that I don't hear 'em
so far on the Left Coast.

6O0CW has been coming in 59 into my QTH in N. Central Fla. on 15 meters CW, very strong at 3 pm EST.  The problem is breaking through the EU wall, it's tremendously hard right now.  I thought on the second week of operation the EU wall would ease up into Yemen but no such luck, they keep coming out of the woodwork.  So I don't know if will be any better for this dxpedition.  I also see that Darko (6O3A) will be operating from Somalia later this month according to the dxpedition calendar.  He's a very good operator and it's always a pleasure to work him.  It looks like Somalia is well covered for this month.

I found it easier than working Yemen the first day. I found 6O0CW listening 1up and working a few, then moving up slightly until he got up 1.5. Then he went back to 1 up. And repeated. Was working mostly EU and a few W1 -W2 and I heard 1 N9 worked. When I worked him he called K9? twice before he got my call.

From the Black Hole of S.IL - Big Al, TS-590s, Tennadyne T-6 TV antenna..

Worked at 2104z.  He was working virtually the whole world, EU, NA and JA.  Big pile , but he was working is way down the band and I was able to drop my call in repeatedly just below his last QSO until he got "K0??"  He was about an S4 or 5 at the time.  He was transmitting on 21.042 and listening as high as 8 or 9 up.

I tried to work them for a while but I find that I'm not as excited about this dxpedition as I was about Yemen.  Maybe I'll try later tonight but I've already worked Somalia, 6O3A so the thrill is partially gone.  Just waiting on a return card from Darko and I see he now has oQRS available.  Have fun everyone!

Worked him tonight on 20M SSB from Colorado, 14270.0, up 7.  Going by the numbers, good ears.  Fairly good signal but K1MAN jerk transmitting on about 14271.5 didn't help.

I hear them, but it's like feeding time at the zoo.

Got them 2 bands so far (20 and 15) 1-2 calls each. Seems super easy here. Didn't have to move the beam from 7o in fact!

I don't know who K1MAN is but he is loud on 271.5.  The quality of the broadcast is so bad I couldn't understand what was being broadcasted.

Ya, this one seemed way easier.  Just a few calls here in Wyoming and I was in.  Pileups are nowhere near the size of 7O6T. 

Since 7O6T has not been going up into the general portion, I think a lot of folks came to this DX today just to get them worked.  I has been good motivation though.  My buddy has been unable to work 7O6T due to being a general and having limited SSB room.  He listens to me making the contacts down low and I think it is FINALLY getting to him enough that he is studying.

Anyway, back on topic, glad to get a new one (6O0) and really not have much trouble doing it.

You do not want to know. He has over a $10,000 judgement against him. I guess some people never learn.

Monday late afternoon and evening they were pretty loud (not as loud as say 7O6T) on 15M CW and working mostly US, tending towards the west coast as things got dark locally.

The pileup on 15M seemed pretty thick and I only tried for a few minutes before I did all my chores :-). But I bet you and me can work them in the next week as the pileup thins out.
