Need Niger for ATNO but dont do RTTY.   I only see RTTY qsos announced on the cluster.
Do they do any CW or SSB at all ?

I worked 5U8NK on 17M SSB and 5U6E on 17M CW.  They do have online logs, if you are lucky enough to work them.  5u5u is much easier to work on RTTY, as he has whittled down the pileups.  After I worked him this morning he called CQ!

Looks like 17m is where I need to pay attention.
Thanks for the info.

5U6E seems to spend all his time on CW, and I have heard him spending a lot of time listening for VK/ZL and W6/7.  Often the Europeans keep calling, frustrating him and at times driving him to go QRT. 

5U5U does seem to be focusing on RTTY, and my experience mirrors the other poster, was easier to work than 5U6E who had a significantly larger pileup.

Best of luck!

The other day all 3 spotted in EU on RTTY at same time. 5U6E did do some CW. He sure didn't go out of his way
to work across the US or at all. It seemed mostly, work whoever is the loudest. EU.

Two or 3 times he just started to come up here out west, then QRT. One night late on 30M CW,
he was pounding Europe when he was 579 here. I was waiting in hopes he would come on 30M so was an early caller.
Could have been working NA, but chose the strongest signal method.

I am glad some found this easy. Their signal was much less than TT8TT. Not only that, the TT8TT group as operators
ran circles around the 5U group. The 5U group almost reminds of an extended digital demonstration. 

Good thing I only needed this as a mobile QSO.
