In a day or so this DXPedition will start.  One may tell from the callsign that most of the crew are from Poland.  This group is top-notch: very experienced, very professional.  They will be on all bands (6M - 160M) and on CW, SSB, and RTTY.  See: http://5t0sp.dxing.pl/

There was lots of activity from 5T in 2008, but prior and since then the vast majority of QSOs have come from Jean, 5T5JL (who is actually part of this DXPedition). 

While not rare by any means (#109 at ClubLog's Most Wanted), many NA stations need lots of bandfills, especially 160M and 80M.

I for one will be looking forward to a topband QSO.  GL, 73, Rich, K3VAT

I worked them this morning from Ohio on 15 meters.
At least I'm 90 percent sure I worked them. Huh
I couldn't find an on-line log for them, they might not even have internet from where they are.

I'd give it another day or two but from what I've seen they're are running at least 2 stations.  They're going to be there a while also.  Good luck and let us know.

Managed to run across them on 12m CW this morning before they were spotted. They were honest 5/8 on my Moxon so that bodes well.

I got them on 15M and 17M today. It probably helped that lots of DXers were working the CQWW CW contest. There seemed to be relatively few callers, especially on 15M. They hear really well, better than I heard them! To cap it off, they have a real-time log and my QSOs were listed in the time it took me to check for them.

I know it's not all that uncommon, but it's an ATNO for me.

I worked both 7P8D (cw) and 5T0SP (RTTY) on 30m, just after CQ WW CW ended. They were both loud - 30M in the early evenings is a great band for me in that direction.

I got Lesotho this morning. Nice and easy. Never did get PT0S. Could not always hear them, and when I did, pile ups and QRM were off the charts.

I could use another CW band fill or two. Took a listen this AM, and the idiots are at it full bore. Sounds like a mini PT0S.  Amazing that a COMMON entity like 5T gets this much attention.  GOD Help us when ZL9HR is QRV.

5t0PS  was easy today on 15 SSB they had a good signal into South Texas.
QSO is already confirmed in Club Log.  17 meters was a madhouse this morning.

Had no problem getting PT0S and confirmation in log a few days ago.  Their signal was pretty weak but readable. 
Big tnx to both expeditions and a big hand to Club LOG, they do a bang up job at
their end.
