Can't believe them but I couldn't hear them at all until a few hours ago on 40m (7.165 mhz).  I dropped my callsign several times (maybe 8 times) and think I finally heard KH6 again again.  Then 3 foreign stooges started a conversation right on 7.165.  What a bunch of low life idiots.  Luckily they'll be there in Burkina Faso for a bunch more days that I can make at least 1 qso.

They came uo out of the noise on 30m a while ago.
Took about 10 calls....and BINGO !

Have them on 20 ph & rtty
and 30m CW so far.

Needed RTTY & CW for mode fills.

They are downright LOUD on 30m CW right now.
I have the attenuator on and the RF gain reduced and they are still
pounding in here.

I was in the same pile as you and I heard several Spanish stations with signals 20 over come on right over 7.165.  Also there was a group of band cops that would repeat the call letters requested by the DX op.  The pile up was totally out of control.  I think the Q rate was something like two Qs per minute.  What a mess!  I'm surprised the DX op didn't go QRT.  If I were him I would have threatened to go QRT if the crowd doesn't behave themselves.

I hear VERY strong Spanish speaking stations here in Nevada all the time. Sometimes they are the only ones on the band. Maybe we need a new term... Guadalajara Gigawatt?  Grin

No kidding.  They sounded like they were broadcast stations on a ham band.

I haven't even heard a peep from them up here, and I've tried and tried.  Got Uganda and Burundi in no time, what are they using as an antenna...wet noodles?

Tom:

I have to disagree with you. I think the Italian DXpedition Team are doing an outstanding job. They were strong on all bands here today, and loads of pileups working North America and we are only 271km apart. Perhaps you should be looking at your antenna systems instead of faulting XT2TT. Good luck in the pileup...

Hi Dale,

I don't know what antenna you're using but their signals to NA have been fantastic.  Not booming but about an S5 to S7 on my station.  You probably also have noise to deal with if you live in a city.  Don't give up.  Hopefully the propagation will improve to your part of the country.  And lastly welcome to the forum.

This is really weird. I'm sure they are doing a good job. Only 217 km?
Heck yesterday someone only 20km away from me spotted them while I was trying to hear them. 59 and not a peep on my end.
But Burundi and Uganda were a piece of cake. But I do have an issue with my antenna a av620.
Due to the winds in the last couple of months, the antenna slid down the mast and the counterpoises are now touching the mast
None the less, still got Uganda and Burundi.

They have been plenty strong here in New England and I've heard them work many VE2 and VE3 stations.  The problem is your antenna in your attic, not their signal!
