Logged them for ATNO #324 where I least expected - 10M SSB . CW sigs on 15 and 12 were very, very light today.  Now here's hoping they logged me  Wink.  GL to all needing them.

In North Texas, they are a true 599 on 12M CW. This is the loudest I have heard them on any band! Just like the charts say!

After I struggled to get them on 12 CW earlier, a "wet noodle" could work them now on 12! Also got them on 15 CW and, of all things on 17 SSB! All the bands that I have heard them on have been rather weak, but now with 12 looking up when it should, I will wait for the log to come up before I try any other slots.

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!

LUCKY !

I heard the QSO. I found them on 30M and could only listen to the UP EU all evening. My gosh....how many EU do they need ? I had given up, and was barely
hearing them pulling into my driveway. Their signal had started dropping here from S9 to S5. Then I heard them call YOU ! LUCKY !!!!

I had been up all night waiting for them, and chasing them on 3 bands. I can't believe all the EU they worked on 30 and 40. Just hours of it.
sad thing...I heard many partials, repeated, slow QSO rates, ...... well as many as 8 reports to some of those jokers !
Not a pretty picture.

OK well given that they will get on the island, I'm fairly certain I can at least get them for ATNO.

Of course if they never make it, all bets are off.



You are already hedging your bets.  Are you having second thoughts about that 100% prediction?   Grin

Just made my first QSO on 30m CW, one call. So it looks like my prediction came true.

First log update now available on clublog.org.  NA has the highest percentage of Qs.  Other continents are not too far behind.

I was surprised how easy it was to work them on 30m CW last night. I guess all the hardcore CW guys were in the 160m contest or something. Cheesy Up to 3 bands and two modes already. I won't have the chance to really start chasing them until Monday or Tuesday night, once my 2013 book goes to the printers.

The real reason is the XYLs of hard core dx'ers want their hubbies in bed  Grin

Got them on 20M SSB this morning for #330 - one away from honor roll.

Yesterday conditions just plain sucked on the West Coast - today - waaaaaaay better.

Maybe they pointed their antenna at West Coast? Who knows . . .

I think those of you on the East Coast have had a easier time working this one than those of us here in the Pacific Northwest, or at least it seems that way. I've worked them on 20M Phone & CW and I'm happy for the ATNO, but they have been really weak on the other bands. In looking at Clublog for some of my fellow local DX'ers, they haven't been doing any better than I have. So for some of us on the West Coast, it's not as easy as it seems or should be Smiley

Congrats Rich, who's No. 331?

in the meantime,

all I want for Christmas is a ZL9 QSO........ followed sometime in 2013 by a ZL9 QSL card.  Grin

Really wierd, I saw the spot on 10M SSB yesterday afternoon so swung the quad on them but nothing. After about 3 minutes I could barely hear them then all the sudden they were up to S9. I made the call and got them first time, 3 minutes later they were back in the noise.
