I was once called by NH2MS when I was vacationing in 9Y. On his QSL card he said he was beaming LP and using 75w. I was floored. I like those kind of contacts.

Is anyone else having trouble with their 15m rtty logs.

I worked them on 15m rtty on 15 Nov and it didn't show in the log. So I spent hours and worked them on 15m rtty again on 17 Nov.

Neither of these qso's are in the log and they were both good solid contacts. I even saved the MMTY file the last time.

Hi Mark:

Congrats on working them on RTTY. I am sure the logs will get sorted out. I just wish I could get them on RTTY. Seems like I am always missing the RTTY openings...Maybe time to call in sick...

Gave a listen a few min ago on 12 and 15 cw. Thought I might try for another band. Ha...... I thank the DX gods for my 17 and 40 meter QSOs. I am SOOO glad I dont have to fight that battle again.  I believe the QRM is worse now than it was at the beginning. The EU GOONS are rabid this morning.... I would estimate I heard at least 500 FUs in a few min. I dont need that headach this morning. 

It just makes me worry how terrible the QRM will be on ZL9HR.  The only way to defeat the jackass QRMers is LOUD DX stations and LOTS of them. Otherwise, forget it. Roll Eyes  One or two stations QRV dont stand a chance anymore, it seems. Sad

I don't think they posted the RTTY QSOs, just a thought.   Didn't see mine either...so who knows...could be a mix up on their end, or just not set up to log them...

Just hope it is on their posession when they return (Hi).

Last QSOs in the Database: 1045 UTC 18 November 2012

They're apparently using a slow and flaky satellite link to upload them, so they're not getting uploaded too often.

Chris:

They might be a bit slow in the updating due to poor speeds etc, but if you go to clublog and look at the list you will see quite a few that have RTTY contacts displayed. To be on the safe side work em again. I am still looking for a RTTY contact and with the low numbers of RTTY contacts, I would have thought they would dedicate at least 1 station to full time RTTY. Only time will tell, I sure hope they dont pack it in prior to the 22nd.....GL

This is not easy from hs between usa and eu. Speaking of radio gods ;]. Managed to work them on 10meters at around 11:30pm local time.

PT0S is located right in between the most concentrated ham-populated parts of the world (NA and EU - and with SA being close and strong as well). When you add in the fact that at this time of the year - the daylight / night time and band conditions are all in good shape - you get the fiercest competition.

Play with DX Atlas and see how very different the situation will be with ZL9HR - it will be like night and day because they will be a mostly high band operation and propagation won't be good for both EU and NA at the same time.

Even the conditions across NA will be very different - yes - it will have more demand than PT0S, but not all at the same time each day.

Planning and strategy with antennas and propagation will be the key to success.

has the NA propagation charts . . . in detail. The ZL9HR site also has very good propagation information.

Unfortunately, I have never seen 10 meters open at 11:30 PM local time for F-layer skip. We occasionally get some sporadic E skip on 10 at that time to the Southern and Great Lakes states. I find it interesting as to how one's location effects propagation on the various bands.

BTW, Marc, that's a very nice catch!

I am having a horrible time hearing these guys. I could barely hear them this morning with 2 preamps. Not sure why.

We get some interesting propagation being closer to the equator.  I was looking through my CQWW DX CW log from last year and saw I had a 10m long path opening to the northeast USA at my 1AM local (15Z).  If the SFI is up, we often get this LP opening into the Caribbean also.  Sometimes it is the only time we can work this part of the world because otherwise we are fighting pileups from NA and sometimes JA as well.

My 160m CW QSO with PT0S was confirmed via LotW today! No insurance QSO required...
