a little dissapointed they have been there 14 + hours i thought they might have 1 station up and running would be the smart thing to do 40m / 20m get the qso's started whittle away the big guns. i suppose its their money i only need 1 slot then the pressure is off we have some nice sporadic e's even 10m mightr have been possible

Usually the DXpedition has to be QRV for a minute and a half before the critiques start (wrong band, wrong mode, wrong time, wrong op, wrong audience, wrong *, etc.)

Why speculate?  http://kh7z.net/ and http://baker2018.net/ have all the scoop.

I don't think it was a criticism or a speculation. And, by the way, if you read the postings at the first link you provided, you will find the following two sentences: "Our original timetable was to be QRV by 05:00 UTC 27 June.  We think we will beat that by 24 hours". So I don't think it was unreasonable for people to be at their radios on the 26th at or after 0500z.

Why not just wait, until it happens?

They unloaded and setup tents, generators, etc etc etc in 100+ degree weather, they deserve rest before they get started, not like it's a 3 day DXPedtion plenty of time to work them.

This is the first time I will monitor one of these and try to connect.
Where do I learn what frequencies/bands/modes they may use?

Thanks,

Neal

Exactly!  Grin

For some strange reason, some people just like to tune up and down the band in search of what's likely not there anyway. Why don't they just turn their radios off and wait for their DX alarms like everybody else???  Grin Grin Grin

Not gonna name names, but I've heard some of the folks who post in this forum over the years in pile-ups, as well as giving questionable operating advice here. Might be a good time to review;)

Good luck!

VK and JA stations started to spot KH1/KH7Z on 14.210. It's 0800 Z, no propagation from here at this time, time for me to go ZZZ.  Grin
