I'm listening - and can hear everyone calling him. The band is only just opening here - while you'se guys East of me can hear him with a good signal. The "pileup management" reminds me of 3C0V - and would look like that cartoon of a pileup that I have seen - I think by "Gil" . . .

I will keep trying - that's for sure . . . . we do need some extra attention out this way - imagine competing with the rest of the country and EU.

I've been working SV2's and SV3's every morning starting at this time for the past week or more . . . .

Wish me luck - hi hi

The herd is amazingly well behaved, very few callers on his TX. It would be nice if he'd spread out his callers, but at least it's better than simplex. Good luck, Rich.

I've never used anyone's contest station or a remote station to make a Q - but man, wish I had access to one now - via Skype -  Grin

I've made all of my QSO's from my own station and backyard. But its times like this  Shocked

I'm going to guess that he doesn't have an amp - and is running barefoot . . .

Looks like SV2ASP/A has gone QRT just as our West Coast sunrise. Never heard him here. My friend in New Mexico worked him.

A few times I thought I heard him - but buried in the noise, and could have been someone calling on frequency.

After he QRT'ed I heard a GW station S9+ pop up on 18.140. I also heard all of the EU stations calling him - especially the EA's.

Oh well . . . . another time. Maybe I need to add two more yagis to my stack - hi hi

I have to get up early tomorrow morning
to get the pig-roast cooking in the slow cooker.

I GOTZ to give it a listen tomorrow AM.

Maybe I'll get lucky...FAT CHANCE !!!

That WOULD be a good way to start a new year.

I could copy him for a good 40min.  For 10min. his signal popped up to S7.  However no joy here Cry  I was so close and yet so far.  N0UN which is 60mi. south of me worked him with ease.  My tribander is not resonant on 17m and I could only hope for a miracle.

One thing I noticed is that he doesn't call QRZ.  So you almost have to call him right after his gives his confirmation.  I'm not used to this style of operating.  Basically the QRM'er gets the contact...

Well, I heard him come back to a 'W6'.  I couldn't hear the suffix very well.  I repeated my call a few times and logged the contact.  Did anyone hear him confirm my callsign?  I'm so close and yet so far.

Good luck - I'm in there too giving it my best. Its a fun way to start the year - I'm glad Monk Apollo is on the air these days . . . and on the bands where I have really decent antennas!

I started the New Year With a Bang  Grin
I got through to Monk Apollo at 1:30 am EST on New Years morning on 7.155MHz.  Three years of trying finally paid off!
I also think the fact that he worked split made a huge difference.  This is going to be the fastest QSL card I have ever send out  Wink
