I know there were several on this list who mentioned needing Ogawawara JD1.

Harry JG7PSJ has been QRV the past two days as JD1BMH from Chichi Jima (Ogasawara).  His QTH does not have a favorable takeoff toward NA, but he has been putting a big effort in listening for North America.  I've seen him on 80m calling CQ NA (East Coast sunrise) and the high bands when open stateside during our mornings (NA afternoon/early evening).  He is well aware of the demand exists especially into NA, and is doing what he can to help.

On 80m he had East Coast callers and seemed to be hearing them reasonably well. 

I think he will be QRV for a couple more days at least.

I heard him on 80m this morning @12:45, not too strong, but solid copy. He had a decent pileup going.

He just left 12m ssb, qsy to cw, again not real strong but good copy.

A+ to Harry for trying.

Yes JD1 can be tough for east coast NA,  but JD1BMH is an exceptional operator.

He is on at favorable times and bands for east coast NA stations and has good signals.

Most of the JD1 operations have been small one or two man JA ops that work tons of JA but not much east coast...

JD1BMH is trying hard to put NA in the log so give it a try it may be one of your best chances for Ogasawara.

He was loud on 17 CW in the evening a few days ago.  He has been putting in a decent signal on 80 CW just before NA sunrise and he hears very well.

Good luck in the pileups.

Just worked him on 30, he's about 559 here on VA on one of my loops. He's listening for NA.

Nevermind, the lids ran him off.
