That's too bad; however I'll still look for you on 160m from Fiji (I need that one too!).

More bad news today.  They lost one of the luggage containing coax and BPFs.  I can't believe the terrible luck.

They are QRV but so far it's been an EU and JA fest.  Perhaps they cannot run high power without the BPFs ???

No joy on the higher bands as the solar storm took its toll yesterday.  However I did get them on 40m this morning for an ATNO.  They seem to have 24/7 propagation to the JA/EU ???  Hopefully I'll have better luck on the higher bands in the next few days.

Not even BIG AL and my C31XR were enough to get through the EU wall this morning. Still after them for a Marathon point. Awesome operators but all EU/JA all the time so far, at least at the times I've seen them spotted.

Got 'em on 15m cw @01:30 or so last night, had to catch him on the qsb peaks, he was pretty weak.

I'd like to catch them on 80m.

So far I have them on 40m, 17m, and 12m.  I don't even have a resonant antenna on 12m and 17m.  They have a huge signal on 15m however every time I'm trying to work them the XYL or kids call me away.  I'll wait until the pile up thins out before I try 15m.  Still haven't seen them on 20m yet.

I was on a ham radio sabbatical from March 2011 to Jan. 2012.  I didn't do one thing ham radio related during this time, not even making a single post on this forum.

Out of curiosity I went to my log to find my very first dxpedition contact.  It was TX3D back in 1/28/2010.  So I only have been working dxpeditions for 28 months taking into account my ten month sabbatical.
