Just worked them on 30. But the spots are saying that it's a slim?

Fast CW op and QSX down... I dunno, but WFWL.

I also heard him reply to U...

But I thought it was to N2AJ

My ears must be going south.

He is also beginning to get a "flutter"
on his sig since it got dark down therre.

Looks like some people are trying to cause trouble, probably hoping people will give up when they see "SLIM" on the cluster.

I dunno who or why anyone would be causing trouble, QRMing etc? Maybe they are the type of DXer who has the same mindset as people on a sports field or race track who will ram into their opponent to cause bodily injury just so that their team can "win." Really poor sportsmanship.

Nope, it was me. Steve spotted him at 2038Z. I worked them at 2052Z.

Congrats (to both you and Steve). I have SP&P on 30 from a few years back so I won't call unless they're begging. They updated the log again and my 160m Q is finally in there - what a relief! Also my 17 and 10m SSB QSOs showed up as well, which had been M.I.A. for two days.

30m became another ZOO with all the idiots coming
out of the woodwork like cocka-roaches.

I gave up listening. It ain't worth the aggrivation.
Maybe tonight after the turds go to bed I can
look for them some more.

My 80 M CW contact showed up today. It came thru the second upload. I was sad the first upload earlier did not have it, but now I am happy.

Now I have to wait for LOTW to catch up!  Grin

ARGH!!! My 80M CW QSO on the 15th is not in the log.  Cry And I know I heard it repeated back perfectly. Seems like they might be dropping a lot of Q's for some reason or one of the computer logs didn't get uploaded before the last update at 0928. But this taught me I need to start recording my QSO's just in case this happens again. At least I would have some recorded proof.

Whew! The 80M QSO finally made it through on the online log. It must have been one of those that didn't get included on the initial upload because of their internet issues. So next time I'll wait a couple of days or so before I start getting worried Smiley

Since my 160m dipole at 35 ft wasn't cutting it, I spent about 5 hours this afternoon working on a inverted-L.

I have plenty of trees, just none over about 40 ft.  I had some 4 ft aluminum military mast I stacked up to 44 ft for the vertical part, (had to loosen the guys ropes as I went up) and ran a wire over to a tree top for the horizontal part.  Had to get the wife to slide the bottom section on, it was getting kinda wiggly. Probably shouldn't have gone that high with it, but I kept thinking "one more". I did put three sets of guys.

I ran a bolt through the bottom section to connect the center conductor, and to keep it from sliding down too far on the big screwdriver I drove in the ground to mount it on. It barely slide over the handle, so I guess it is insulated enough. It also left it elevated about 6 inches off the ground.

I was running out of daylight, so I only had time to run 2 elevated radials, zig zagged around anything I could find to keep it elevated. It wound up being a bit short, 1.7 @ 1.915, but the tuner took care of that for now.

It was time well spent. Got 'em on 160m @ 01:50.  Smiley

They have a good explanation up now in the news section about how difficult it is to update the logs.

Not that I mind--I already have way more in the log than I would have expected.  The last two Qs were actually pretty easy   Grin

80M was especially good early Saturday morning (0200Z); CW op very good and a manageable pile.  Propagation was cooperating also.

Their log seems to be working also - at least my 2 Qs showed up.

I was hearing them on 160 well past midnight but they were light and probably not hearing me.

I'll try again until I get 'em.

My 3:45 AM 40 meter CW QSO, when I was half asleep, has shown up in their online log today.  That one stands out more than my 10 and 15 meter QSOs because I only have a simple Inverted V at 55 feet for the low bands.

Chris, thanks for pointing out the log update this morning!  I was pleased to see my 160m QSO there.  PT0S had a great signal last evening on 160 just before 0300 UTC, and I was lucky to be there at the right time.

73,
