Just worked ZL9HR on 14150 over SP. Good signal here in NC.
The night watch paid off. Good luck to all

Congrats.

Not sure I would call it "good", but good enough here in Texas, and SP better than LP.

Time to catch some shut eye now.

Good luck.

Bagged and tagged for ATNO #327. Worked on 20 SSB, up about 13 kHz!

Absolutely no copy on 15m and 17m around 05:30z.
He is below a 33 on 40m, but he is simplex and the west coast stations
are hearing and working him and at the same time, it is twilight in
Russia and parts of E.Eu, so they are hearing him and working him as well
on 40m.
If only he continues to stay on 40m, it should be sunset in ZL9 shortly,
but then he will have to leave the island, which makes it hard for
East coast to nab 40m during our sunrise, which should be in about 5 hours.

Oh well. 20m copy was good in the sense that it did move the S-meter and
we could hear him quite well to work him. The 3Ele yagi at 70ft helps.

Good one Peter. When he called early on, he said up 5. I called a couple times and then he announced 5-10,
we got him up 10. Looks like he kept expanding the split. At any rate, not a bad signal here in East coast.
Hope the signal builds up for folks up north.
Left the amp running just in case and was planning to shut it down as the last item. That helped.

It was almost a fluke for me. I was doing S&P in the 160 contest under the headphones. My alarm went off once but I didn't pay a lot of attention as I was doing a nice rate. Since I wasn't using the cluster in N1MM for the contest it didn't register at first. I flipped over to VE7CC's alarms page and there it was. I think it took me about a half hour to nail 'em.

Bagged them on 40m SSB.  My first contact was almost ESP as I only heard him confirm with W6G.  40 minutes later they were 57 and I got them again on the second call.  20m SSB was another story.  Two local birdies are right on 14.150.  I have both the digital notch and manual notch on.  I'm also fighting the pileups with Europeans on LP and ZL/VKs.  I guess selective filtering isn't working tonight.  I don't think I'll get through on 20m tonight.  It's 11:30pm local here now.  My best chance on 20m would be just before sunset.  GL to all.

Absolute JA chaos on 15m right now.  ZL9 asks multiple times for the BV1 and dozens or more JAs keep calling right over poor BV1EK, zero beat with him.  ZL9 gets credit for sticking with a call until he gets it, but in this case, he copied BV1EK incorrectly because the JAs would not shut up.

Absolutely disgusting behavior out of what is normally very well mannered Japan.  There were literally hundreds of JAs calling incessantly across the split while ZL9 specifically was asking for one guy - the BV1 - several times.

This will be a tough nut to crack for most if this type of activity continues.

I thought JA would have almost 24 hours of propagation to ZL9HR  Huh

On 20m SSB I couldn't hear the EU pile but I guess it's bad as the operator was working a very slow Q rate.

Not necessarily 24/7 with JA... it's a 4K mile path from KH2 and it's another 1500 miles to Japan.  Now that it is sunset here, they are weak but readable on 40 and 30, but have a better path to EU and NA apparently - me and all the JAs calling (some with multiple KW) can't break through.

Nailed em on 30 meters at 0948Z this morning. Shocked

The early bird DOES get the worm. Shocked

They were solid 599+10-20 ever since 0800z this AM.

I was up then and listening. They were ESP here in MD. I am surprised 599+ in FL and ESP in MD. I'm doing the 160 contest, so I'll try again tomorrow morning.

Paul, I was more surprised than you.  I got up right at 3 AM local, as nature called me. hi hi
Almost just went back to bed, but I figured they "Might" be hearable on 40m. I could barely hear them on 40, so I listened on 30 and they were so loud, I thought it could not really be them. I listened and called from around 0810z until I got them just before 1000z. (they shut down around 1011z) My call was the only NA call I heard in the entire 2 hours. Several times I started to just shut down as he was working EU constantly, but perseverance paid off in this instance! Thats #311 for me, I believe.  GL when you try tonite!
