Great conditions this morning on 10 meters LP to the southeast. XZ1J, XV1X and a slew of Russians coming from the SE here in NTx. The Vietnam station sounded like a West Coast station! And I just made it into the log update for XZ1J so soon after working them!

Good signal on 40 SSB during grey line this morning. I heard them well enough on my vertical to make a few calls from here in Nevada.

You trying to make me look bad? hihi
Murphy, Texas, SOUTHEAST? Roll Eyes  South east of Dallas, huh?

Where the hell is FLORIDA?  (where I could barely hear them). Florida is southeast.

On 12m SSB I heard mostly 4's and 5's being worked.  I didn't hear any stations from the West Coast work him.

Verticals tends to lag in performance compared to horizontal antennas.  You could hang a dipole cut for 12m very low from the ground and you should hear better on it than on the vertical.  With the dipole you get excellent take-off angle that equals the vertical and you also have 5-6db of ground reflection gain that you don't get on the vertical.

I just looked at their equipment list.  Five stations total; two of them have beams.  I saw no amp. listed.   If that's true then I'm surprised to even hear them when they are running just barefoot.  From what it seems this not your typical high budget, high powered dxpedition.

It's not too often that we have these conditions and others who should be gobbling them up don't!  Grin Grin I am enjoying it while it last.

We are actually 15 miles NE of Dallas, just south a few miles from the Southfork Ranch, JR's digs!

Yeah.  I never thought in a lifetime that I would be fighting a East Coast wall for an Asian DX Cheesy  Enjoy the great openings to Asia on 10m and 12m.

Great signal on 17 meters earlier today. I didn't try to work them - I thought I would wait until during the week to try, but I was amazed at the signal.

Yes, XV1X was peaking 599 here (north MS), amazing! XZ1J was much much weaker on 10 LP, but seemed to be hearing well.

We are running five stations with four amplifiers. We are using 4O3A high power Tri-plexers so that we can run 10-15-20 meters at the same time.

Hi Paul-N6PSE,

Thanks for the clarification on the amplifiers.  What is the power output of the amplifiers?

It's nice to hear you on 17m.  It's funny how the JA's would start calling when you forget to say 'NA only' Cheesy  Thanks for listening for NA only during the very short opening on 17m.

Hi guys, we have just finished a very nice two hour run with North America on 12 CW and SSB (at the same time). We had our beams pointed at 190 degrees for LP to North America. I was on SSB and Rafael was on CW.  I was working EU and hoping that North America would start calling, when I heard Peter W2IRT come through loud and clear. I had a good run working K1-W6. All signals were pretty weak and there were a few times when it seemed like the band closed, only to have it open again. 73,  Paul N6PSE

Thanks Paul for the ATNO!  Signals were stronger on 17 CW, but I correctly guessed that I'd have better luck on 12SSB once I saw Peter's spot!

Congrats Zack on the ATNO.  It's a toughie from the East Coast.

I guess Pete W2IRT is the W3LPL of SSB spots Grin

Hi Guys, look for us on 10 or 12 meters long path at our sunset. 12 meters LP was really good last night.
