I worked them a couple of days ago and then again today (22:56 UTC on 12M CW). Are they on Australs Island now as scheduled?

www.dxworld.net says they are suppose to be on Australs starting May 8. Hopefully they are! Grin

Same case here, I just heard him call "CQ de FO/KH0PR OC-114 UP" which would be Austral.

Huzzah!

Anybody hear them today?  In past days they have been 339 at best but I have heard them.  No sign of them today, however.

I think I saw them spotted on 12m RTTY around 2300 or 0000 tonight.

Congratulations on 300 and 301. But that is nothing compared to the congratulations you get for having a new daughter! Way to go OM. How many does that make?

Thanks She is our first born so it's a steep learning curve but it's all worth it, I have been told it will improve my low band DXing with the late night feeds HI :-)

I was changing my first kids diaper at 3 AM one morning, could not get back to sleep and decided to tune the 20 M band. This was in 1972. Since most of the US was asleep, I had the band to myself, so to speak. Well, you guessed it, up pops a ZS, in fact it was ZS2MI....! I was not a big DXer then. I worked him and later found out he was quite rare and the island is still rare over 40 years later!

Using an old nautical term, "They are Balls to the Wall" tonight, on 10 meters RTTY. I finally worked them in 30 minutes. It took all I could muster!  Grin

I have three 7, 5 and 18 months. Yes they do help with low bands. Get used to balancing the bottle on your chin and you'll have a chance to use the paddles.

Anybody needing them, especially on 10M CW (28.0068 MHz),  their signal has been increasing all afternoon. They are strong now here in N. Texas.

"Them" is HIM. This amazing guy is on his own, just spending a couple of hours for sleep, then on the radio again.  Got two new bands and most of all a new RTTY entity from him. Domo Arigato, Yoshi.

And to Trevor, EI2GLB, two big congratulations. First of all, which is the most important, the birth of your daughter.
And, second, consider yourself lucky to work VK9NT in RTTY. I have spent two days off from work, and the whole weekend trying to catch them in this mode, but NO luck. Out of those 208 RTTY-QSO's with EU, I just know of handfull of Western EU who were lucky, mostly stations in zone 15 and 16 got through.

So I am more than happy that Yoshi was giving me a new one which I did not expect, hi.
