The PT0S operator on 17M CW this afternoon at about 2000 UTC was showing a definite tendency.  When a DX spot was posted up 2.5 KHz I saw a stampede on my spectrum scope to that frequency - creating "bare spots" in the spectrum up frequency.  I moved my transmit frequency up to the first "bare spot", between 5 - 6 KHz and made contact within 30 seconds.  It only makes sense that with such large pileups their operators are trying to avoid the worst of the clutter and locate more discernable calls.  This technique has netted me 5 contacts in 30 minutes of calling.  

Some information is better left in your pocket.  Wink

New Log Update + message from the guys on the rocks!

Sounds like they are really "earning their keep" on this one. (No where to SLEEP?Huh?)  Shocked

Perhaps your contacts are still in the buffer on the Iridium satellite  Wink

I hope the logging problem will be resolved in a very short time.

When (days & times) did you work them?  Their log seems to be pretty current.

I worked them on 40 CW at around 2100UTC yesterday (11/14) and I see my QSO in the "newest" edition of the on-line log.

Yea, that's what worries me. I am about to give it up and continue my search for number 303.

20 CW 11/13 @ 14:47
10 CW 11/14 @ 16:52
12 SSB 11/14 @ 18:44
17 CW 11/14 @ 17:10
15 SSB 11/14
12 CW 11/13
10 SSB this morning.

Except for 10 SSB these are the ones that, according to their upload date & time, should be in the log. I'll see and hope that the 10 meter contact this morning makes it into the log, if not I'm off searching for number 303 elsewhere.

Ouches!!!!  I would definitely keep trying them on all the bands until you see your QSO listed and not worry about dupes.

Good Luck,

Steve:

Their website addresses possible problems. They do not have the time or bandwidth to fix the logs and also mention to work them again and they will not classify it as a dupe. Strange though all your QSO's are not in the log, perhaps they are not getting your call correct. Next time you work them, make note of who else works them at the same time ie, right behind you and then check next day if the other person is in the log.

Best advice, keep plugging away...

I would strongly advise against doing that. There may not be another trip to SPSP for a long time.  If your goal is to work them all you will need SPSP.

I also think your problem will be sorted about but when it happened to me it was not pleasant.  I understand your frustration.

Just got him on 80 M CW. I missed his initial coming up, so had to battle the hoard  Smiley!..........

My 80M CW contact last night at  04:50 UTC is not in today's log, so I am hoping it is somewhere floating around. I have three others in the log, so I am happy that a new one gets me closer to my goal.

I won't count on a log fixup and will work em when there is still a chance.

This Am, there was a good chance to work 30m, about 5:00am EST or so.
PT0S called and no takers Smiley, so he QSYed.

But to the contrary, on 20m ssb, there were a lot of NA, but he QSYed
to 15m ssb. Ouch!!

The 15m RTTY was tough with them sitting mostly between 2 to 5 kcs
and very seldom moving up. 3 hours and no luck here. But it does not
top my 5+ hours for 160 so far.

Well, hope I have insurance now. I worked them again on 10 SSB at 18:35 and confirmed he had my call correct. I'll try CW again then check the log in the morning. All my contacts will probably appear Smiley

The time refers to "latest QSO in the log"  

To me, this means there may well be earlier QSOs that aren't in the log yet due to IT/upload issues.

Two of my three QSO's made it in, including my questionable contact. My 80m did not though, which I'm sure he had my call correct. Perhaps it's still floating around waiting to be transmitted in the Iridium phone system..

17 cw @ 18:33 11/14 good
80 cw @ 08:05 11/15 not there
40 cw @ 09:08 11/15 good

They are doing a great job for the conditions they are working in, I'm just glad I'm in there! I guess I'll just try to work em' again on 80m. Anything extra now is just gravy as far as QSO's go.

They busted your call at least once: WA8FG is in their log on 20CW.
