Just worked 20M SSB from Colorado (1300 UTC).  Very good operator, surprisingly strong signal.  I expected I would have to wait about 1 1/2 hrs longer (1430 UTC) for signal to build.   Was working split, 5 to 10 up.  I went up 8.  14188.

He finally peaked at S9 here about one hour after I worked him @ 1018 UTC.
The operator is really going out of his way to work NA & SA. He asked for just the Americas at least three times while I was listening and he limited the calling frequency to one frequency instead of the 10 Khz spread he was using.

I use HamCap for propagation forecast.  It's free.  http://www.dxatlas.com/hamcap/

Looks to me that 20 mtrs at about 1230 UTC is best for east coast, also around 2200 to 2300.  Similar for 15 Mtrs.  Also check dxwatch.com, enter a search for 9M4SLL, and see what bands they are working, and who is making contact.  That helps a lot.  Good luck.

Well they are just as difficult to hear from my QTH as the 9M0L group.  I worked 9M0L on the last day so maybe I have a shot.  I tried last night for 30 minutes dropping my callsign but no success.  However scanning 17m I managed to work Ralph, H44USMC.  It seems Spratly signals are to long for Hawaii but great for NA.

Hey Dan,
 Congrats!!! Was that a new one? Work 'em early is the way to do it. I haven't heard them yet. I tried a few minutes on 40 this morning because I've heard 9M6XRO on 40 during the IOTA contest, but I was really busy today and had to go.
 We've had thunderstorms just about every afternoon and evening - and even in the morning. Today has been fairly clear but I do see a couple storms developing to the southeast of town. I hope they will die out or move in the other direction.

Good Job, man!

 73, Larry

It's been so damnably hot here lately that even with central air working overtime, sleep is a difficult commodity to acquire. As such, when my DX alarms went off at 6:30 this morning I ignored them, forgetting that Spratly may in fact be audible along the greyline on 40. Feh. Won't make that mistake again.

I worked John on 40m cw this morning at 09:45, about 3 minutes after working Steve on 20m ssb (he was L O U D) and he mentioned John was on 40.

He was pretty weak, but I could hear him much better about an hour later while driving to work.

That should line up with your greyline pretty well, Peter. Assuming he is there tomorrow.

QSL the heat.  It was 95 here with 80% humidity.  I hate summer. Come on winter, a bit of snow for my counterpoise and 160m here we come.

FB Dan! Good luck on the DX Marathon. You are way ahead of me.  Smiley
Spratly would be a new one for me. Unfortunately its in the elusive Zone 26 which I've managed to avoid working for, lets see, the last 28 years!  Grin

Finally Grin!! Worked them this morning on 40CW around 1034Z.  I am 90% sure the QSO is good. There was a LOT of the usual QRM but I actually think I worked him a couple times within a few min. Hey, after all this is the first time I have even heard Spratly. Insurance QSO is NOT a bad thing!!  73, Gene AF3Y
BTW.... Heard a NEW jerk/LID type this morning. This guy just taps his keyer every so often, and sends a V or two every once in a while. Just ENOUGH to keep you from hearing the DX completely give your call. GRRRRRR Angry Angry

Good going, Gene.

He was about a 549 in the mobile at 10:32.
