From the H44G web site:

"   H44G is **not** monitoring the cluster. No "PSE" or "TNX" or "WORKED" or "WHEN" or
"WHY NOT" and no fake DX Cluster spots! More spots = more QRM. - Do you want more QRM?"

I know the "cluster" robots can't read, I guess DXers can't either. We wouldn't want common sense to get in the way of DX'ing. Oh and here's a great spot - acknowledging the intentional interference. "K0JPL          28005.3 H44G          UP, CB QRM"  Nice one!

Finally got him on 15 tonight, after a few days of trying. The pileup (at least the part I could hear) was a lot tamer than the TX5K madhouse.

Congrats on the QSO. I thought they had an interesting perspective on the spots which apparently they can do without. When they get to H40 things might get a bit crazier.

Sadly, there are those that do. I heard somebody sawing up-and-down across TX5K's frequency.  Angry

Why so?  Temotu is not that scarce, IMHO.  Neither is H44. 

H40FN should have satisified most hams last year, or in 2010....... OR perhaps  I was lucky, with 4 bands. EASY with the wire vertical from Fla.

H44 seems to ALWAYS be QRV.  I have 6 or 7 bands from a couple different stations.

David..... is it just location? Actually it seems you may be a bit closer than me in Florida(?)

Actually, I worked H40FN from my SC QTH as well as on the little vertical here in Fl. and I dont recall either of the contacts being unusually tough.............

GL this time, I wont be your competition, except maybe on 10 or 80 Grin.

I think I got H40T on 30 this morning.

This would be #301 for me (#299 current).

All I know is the 30M pileup this morning about 1000Z was huge. I worked H40MY back when he was doing his Pacific trip a couple year or so ago. Easy to work, but that was back during the minimum. Plus it seems like there have been several operations from there. I think EU didn't have good propagation for a long time. And if you can get them to go crazy over IS0, I'm sure they will go absolutely bananas over H40.
