Based on the experience of you PSK-31 DXe'rs: do the "sought after" DX stations use split ops (with their transmit frequency locked and their receive cursor moving up or down frequency on the waterfall)? If they operate split, do they typically announce it with a frequency spread or an up or down instruction?

I've only been operating digital moded for about 2 months, but so far I have not come across anyone operating PSK split.  I have worked several of the recent expiditions (5X, 5N, 9U, ZK3, TT) but those have all been RTTY and they were all split.

I have worked a few DXpeditions on PSK-31 and they something like split or up. I can't remember the exact wording but it was fairly obvious what they were saying and doing.

I have worked a few DXpeditions on PSK31 where they were listening up, sometimes up 100hz or so.

And now I'v just seen one for the first time.  XT2IVU was on 15M PSK-31 this morning, listening up 1.

I currently have 105 DXCC entities worked on PSK31 and 91 confirmed as I close in on getting my Digital DXCC award. I have never worked any one of these that had a split-frequency operation. And I have taken my own K3/100 and vertical dipole antenna on three IOTA DXpeditions to rare and semi-rare IOTAs and never found the need to operate PSK31 split. Nearly all of the DXCC Qs have occured on 14.070. I run DigiPan 2.0 with a SignaLink USB. Now having achieved DXCC Honor Roll after 50 years on SSB, I find PSK31 DXCC entity-hunting a very rewarding new challenge as this exciting mode is being used by more and more DXpeditions.

73 and Good Luck,
