XX9B - MACAO. On the air now till March 17th. I noticed them on 20m CW yesterday my morning, but at the time they were very weak in my QTH and they had many EU callers so it was pointless for me to even try.

The team consists of XX9LT, PP1CZ, PR7AB, PY2MC, PY2SEX, PY2WAS, PY3MM, PY4BZ, PY5HSD, PY6RT, PY7XC and PY5KD.

I wouldn't hold by breath on this one.  They were on 80m this am with a good signal, but only worked JAs while the greyline passed over NA.  Lots of stateside calling but I didn't hear them work a single one.

They gave up on me on 40m a couple of days ago after getting, "K0?" then "K0R?"  Then he went on to a different call without completing the QSO.  Hey, thanks, Bud.

XX9 is a big DXing thorn in my side.  One of those that should be fairly easy from CO, especially on 40 or 80.  Often activated but every time I have decent copy so does every JA.  Ugh.

Log to search:    XX9B

4,382 QSOs logged between 2018-03-09 10:47Z and 2018-03-12 12:44Z

Not many Q's for the size of the team (12 ops, 3 stations, 24 hrs) and their time there.

They must be having some severe issues.

Managed to get them on 20/cw yesterday, but it was a real struggle.  Didnt help having the tower wound down as Cyclone Hola went past us.   Gavin ZL1BBW

That's an amazingly low QSO count.  I used to do 2500 in a weekend, alone. in a hotel room with a C3 and a couple of inverted V on the roof as XX9TEP - 5 operations from there from 1998 - 2003.  80% CW.

The JAs will always stand by if you want to try NA or EU.

I worked XX9B yesterday evening using FT8 on 17M. Yes, I'm in the online log.

This was my first Macau station since 2006. Hong Kong is pretty easy here, while Macau is rarely audible.

I nailed them as well...  Was fun, and it has been awhile for me as well.
