Interesting. I wonder if they'll operate TU again today. I have worked TU2CI quite a few times but no luck for a QSL.

Aaaand I got 'em!

I hope they are able to upload to LoTW or otherwise take QSL requests.

I was able to work them last night for an ATNO. What was surprising was they were not operating split.  Their website says LOTW, but how does one go about uploading logs for a callsign they don't own ( Club Call) Hmmm... I guess it is a wait and see. I now look for them from 5V, TY, TN and Z2 for ATNOs.

Oh and the main operator spells his name correctly

They were operating split initially but when the pileups thinned out they went simplex.

You can upload for a club call, just select the QSO dates for that particular certificate. All ARRL needs is a copy of the license which I presume they'll have.

In any event they are also doing OQRS.

They are now in Ghana using the callsign 9G1HW.  I hope to catch them when there's propagation to NA.

Very light here; just bagged 'em on 20 SSB before the teeming euro-hordes descended. Barely ESP at 18z.

I'm going to start giving YOU the moniker 'the marathon-hordes' Cheesy  The marathon-hordes always descend faster than the Euro-hordes or the JA-hordes.

There is that, I guess. At least 20 SSB is the most common band/mode combination so it's not like I'm going all exotic for my one Q Grin
Unless they show up with a big signal on 160 I won't be calling 'em again this year. I only really take a serious stab at the Marathon every few years. I took a break last year and will probably do so again next year. I will never come close to winning so it's just "personal best" I'm fighting for.

Got him on 20m SSB.  He was working simplex and not a lot of callers.  I have expected a larger crowd.  This is only my second contact with 9G.  I hope to catch him again in TY for an ATNO.

They weren't too strong but I worked them on 20 meters.  I'd like to work them when in Benin.  I only have QSL cards from my Benin contacts so if this trip uploads to LoTW I'd gain a new country.

15 meters was open past 9 PM tonight.  Nothing new but the JAs were very strong and I worked T88OK before the band went out.  T2TT never got strong enough to work. I think I was too late for that path. The K-Index went to 4 and all the bands showed Fair to Poor but you couldn't tell it from the signals.

I have Easter I. on the big three bands now picking up 10 meters today. This must be an all CW operation. I haven't heard them on phone once.

FYI
Jon was in Togo today using the call "5V7ZA".  He was on 15 USB.

I just missed him today.  Hopefully he'll be on again.  I look forward to his next stop Benin.  TY would be a new one for me!

So it looks like they are QRT now? Map says they are in South Africa. But I have not seen any spots for them.

Hoping they can QSL TU2CI for me because that is ATNO.

Anyone sent off QSL requests yet? Looking to confirm TU2CI.
