You can get a great idea of what they are hearing from the audio clip that Col posted here:

http://dx-world.net/

That is a very LOUD signal. I don't care what the meter said that was a Q5 signal in my book.  I only wish they were anywhere near that strong on 10 meters when I thought I heard them answer my call.  They were slightly above the noise level or under it depending on QSB.

I just heard my call on 15 CW very clearly.  On the first go around all I heard was NU1? so I resent my call and I got the full call the second time.

Does anybody know what the plans for uploading to their online log are?  Is it once a day?

They will not extend their stay . . . December 9th is their last day

That's Dec 9th their time, Saturday, Dec 8th here, correct?


Very lite on 10m, but they do hear well.

Got 'em this afternoon at 2052Z on 15M CW.  Not very strong in the Northeast, peaking about S3 at best with lots of steep QSB.  And as posted earlier, they are sticking with calls until they are completed.  Can hardly wait for the first log update - it'll be #335.

GL & 73 All,

Just about all the signals I am hearing today from ZL9 are weak with lots of QSB.  I am getting a little nervous about my 30 meter QSO now. Sure hope its in their log.... Roll Eyes

  Hope I dont have to work em again under condx like today. When can we expect a log posting??

The IDIOTS are rearing their UGLY HEADS !

ZL9 is spotted on 14.195 and it seems like 1/2 the world
is calling them SIMPLEX.
What a bunch of FOOLS !!!

I'll wait until the middle of the night.

Problem is 7P8D is on 14.185 listening up 5-15. Great day to just sit back and listen to frustrated cops. Smiley

Of course, there is more to ham radio than 20M . . . a lot more . . .

I have been listening everywhere they have been spotted today,
all I hear are crickets chirping.
Conditions seem POOR today.
I am trying to work some RTTY in the TARA RTTY Melee,
and signals are very weak at best. I normally can hear BC, CA, WA, OR etc, and they are all down in the noise.
That will change, don't know when, but it WILL change.
The question is...Will the change be positive or negative ?


Actually, I prefer to stay away from 20m.
It seems to ALWAYS be a zoo.
I would rather work DX on 10, 12, 15 or 17m.

Good phonetics for the gang on Campbell

Zulu-Lima-9-Honor-Roll

Seems like LOTSA cluster spots claim this one
put them over the top for HR !

Congrats to all !

ATNO #331 for me.  Got em on a couple of bands, just to make sure.  It's only taken me 35 years to get Honor Roll   Grin

I'm a happy camper.

Yea. they were weak here on some bands, but their 20m signal was good last night.
The new Dxengg preamp has been a saviour.

Waiting on the log upload  now.

Congrats to everyone who got a ATNO or made HR with this one.  Good luck if you're still huntin'.

Best I've heard them so far was a peak of 579 on 12m cw in the mobile, about 40 minutes ago.

He replied with /m, hope he logged it that way.

This one doesn't seem to be as hard as we were thinking it might be, and the ops are doing a great job handling the pileup. Also calling for different areas fairly often, as it would seem they are hearing a lot of the world at the same time.

This one has me baffled.

Last night he had a fantastic signal on 40m but on 20m he was weak in CO.  While folks in FL were enjoying S9 signals on 20m.

Today they are audible on all of the higher bands but once again very weak.  10m had a lot of QSB but if you could hear him chances are good in working him.

I'm listening on 17m right now and he's barely above the noise.  I'm very surprised.  The lower solar flux doesn't help either.  If you observe the cluster spots you'll see a mixed bag in propagation.

The actual propagation is turning out to be quite different than the predicted propagation.

Conditions were not very good on 10 and 15 today so 20 meters may offer the best chance for a station in the North East unless things improve dramatically in the next few days.  If you have a good antenna on 40 that maybe the best band depending upon on 20 works out.

I keep forgetting you are a relative newcomer. In a few more years you will realize why they are called predictions.  Propagation is more of an art than science.

Great ops! I got 3 slots in about half and hour tonight.  Sigs were relatively weak, but they pulled me out.
Thanks for the great job guys! ATNO here too.
