Vince, I worked the 9N7MD expedition in 2011.

Worked A52JY in 2012, so both of those toughies were from here at the Fla QTH, using the
wire vertical with a BUNCH of radials.
 
I never heard either Nepal OR Bhutan when I was at the S. Carolina QTH, with more and better antennas, including a Force 12 C-3SS around 50' up, 2 wires, a vertical and a 17m Delta Loop.  Go Figure Huh

BTW, my "Back in the Day" was Feb. of 2006, when I logged my FIRST DX Roll Eyes.

GL....... Hope you get em!

Oh yeah, let me get my 8 element 20 meter beam out. The sad part is we have probably passed the peak and even double peak of cycle 24. As the saying goes "th th that's all folks!" I'll be lucky to hear Nepal, much less work it. Here's to Cycle 25.

And the predictions of cycle 25 are making it seem that we are all going to look back at 24 with fond memories.

I picked a heck of a time to get into DXing

At least you guys enjoyed the peak of cycle 24.  I started DX'ing in 2009 and sadly I missed the peak of cycle 24 (I took 10 months off in 2011- not by my choice).

9N1AA is fairly active.

He had a decent signal Friday night on 15m RTTY, around 03:30utc.

I have heard Nepal exactly ONE TIME
and that was back in 2006 or 2007.

I can use Nepal & Bhutan anywhere, any mode.

Yep,  5.8 dBd gain, so they claim.

 I'm not sure how many of the 8 are "working" on 15m, but it plays well.

It's no better here in the West, Vince. I've been out here in "6 Land" for over a year and seldom hear (much less "work") stations from that part of the World. Even India is somewhat rare. Like everyone else, I'm looking forward to the next upswing in propagation.

Nepal used to be extremely easy--especially when Father Moran was active as 9N1MM.  I used to work him weekly with strong signals.  I finally got the opportunity to go to Kathmandu in person after Father Moran died, but I didn't have the opportunity to get on the air from there.

Did you run into Bob Seger over there? I think years back he considered going.  Wink
