D64K had a good signal and an excellent Op last night as they worked the US, including many in W6.   Great Job!

I'm in the log for 20 CW.

Right now there is a slim on 20m CW both transmitting and listening on the DX frequency. So people are working the slim simplex while the DX is working everyone else split. You'd think people would know better. It's a freaking mess...

Ugh, yeah I heard that last night. I gave up on 20 and went over and nabbed em' on 30m with just a few tries. I'm pretty sure he got my call correct, I'll definitely want to work them somewhere else again just to make sure.

Not a peep this far north in NJ on 10 or 12m this morning, despite many spots on the cluster from points further south.

You got your 12m CW Q.
I was in that pile-up and heard him answer you too.

When is MY turn for an answer coming HuhHuh?

Maybe once the pileups thin out.

Yep, that was a clean QSO. No fading, QRM or anything. Lots of guys in this part of the world worked 'em on 10 as well but they barely came above the QRN then faded back to nothing here. That big hill to the east of me kills my takeoff angle big-time, so I suspect I'll be the last one in North Jersey to snag 'em on 10, unless propagation really gets hoppin'.

It wasnt a pirate. in the log 15 & 20 from Medium-Small big-gun West Coast station!

Some dummie on the cluster, called me a dummie, because I called him a dummie for saying D64K was working simplex (causing a lid fest riot of simplex callers) and I said he is up 1. What a dummie.
Nice work working him in all that chaos. However, there WAS a slim on the 20m DX frequency working simplex last night, confusing the hell out of some people. If it makes you feel better that cluster crab probably worked the slim if he kept spotting him as simplex.  Cool


For sure there was. If I thought I heard D64K running simplex when he has hundreds of callers, I'd wait before calling him simplex, its not likely. Dummie got what he deserved for being a dummy, a big bowl of nothing.

The CW pileup on 20 was nuts last night.  15k wide and wall to wall.  oddly enough, they weren't that strong here.

I did snag them on both 15CW and SSB however.  Happy about that.

Worked them on 17m.  They were looking for Pacific and NA and was loud, booming.  Guess their Spiderbeam works extremely well.

I thought I would not be able to get them, but then on 17m SSB late last night I somehow managed a QSO  Smiley
I could not even hear them on 40m last night and on 20m SSB they were working frequencies only available to Extra class US hams.

I am still holding out hope for a 30m QSO...

Congrats!  My work schedule has not allowed me to be on the air when 17m and 20m are open.  I'll get my first chance at these two bands tomorrow.  Wish me luck.

Interesting development.

I THINK I got thru to D64K on of all places 15m PHONE.
I am NOT SURE, but I believe he answered me.
Got my call wrong the first time, so I repeated,
and I think he got it correct.

D64K was BARELY a WHISPER on 15m, so now to check
the on-line log in a day or two.
