Not strong here and QSB on 14210 kHz, but I popped my call in and was heard!

The op seems to be hearing very well. Stations calling aren't so responsive.

Spotted on 14.210 and 7022.5. Nothing heard on 20 and I can just hear something in the noise on 40 but not even remotely loud enough to call (yet). Just getting into our greyline though.. let's see what happens as the sun comes up.

S9 +10 at one point on 40M - great op. Just starting to hear them on 160M - with all preamps off (summer noise). Chip shot from here though . .

Good luck.

Heard them on 40M working long string of JA's then they switched to NA only.

The op I heard was not working extreme splits, sticking in the range of 1 to 4 up.

Stayed up way too late, waiting for them to show up last night. Finally hit the sack @06:00z

Got up for work at 09:30z, nothing heard on 160m, decent signal on 40m.

Hearing them about s5 here in NTX on 40m CW @ 0600 local just before heading off to work. Good sized pile going.

For me on 40 they came up a bit around 0930 - 0950 then back down in the mud. We share greyline with JA as they were working back and forth between JA/NA. Gonna have my work cut out for me on CW.

Really curious to see how FT8 goes..

May be a mess if people don't read the F & H operating instructions. I'm looking at 14.090 now and a Puerto Rican station is calling KH1 directly in the Fox area (I don't see KH1 calling CQ). If a lot of stations do that it will be a hot mess.  Sad

Oh now somebody just sent "GET OFF FREQ" in FT8! Oh my ...

Hams are notorious for not reading anything.  I wouldn't expect more than 10% to read the instructions on using Fox and Hound.

Yes, I saw the spot on 14.090.  Many calling but the DX station is missing.

FT8 comes with instructions? Psssssssh... who needs those??  Huh Huh Huh Roll Eyes

LOL.. yeah I guess we're gonna have FT8 frequency cops too now.  Angry

I spent a fair amount of time going through the documentation, watching a couple of videos on dxpedition mode, picked up a "CAT" cable for my Icom, etc to prepare for this dxpedition mode in FT8. I wish I had time to participate in some of the testing they did kept having time conflicts.

Congrats to those who have KH1 in their logs already! For me things got a bit more complicated: my rotator stopped working about 30 minutes ago! It's pointed to 35 degrees (KH1 is 270 degrees from here), so I may be out of luck! Oh well, I was QRT for over 25 years, I will survive a few weeks (or months) of being QRT again, no?  Grin

It's unpleasant, but things do happen, it's not the end of the world. If I don't work KH1 now, at least I may experience the thrill of working another DXpedition to Baker some 10, 15, or 20 years from now. GL to you all!

My main amplifier (Alpha 8410) was shipped for repair at the beginning of the month and should've been returned by now so I'm uneasy without a backup amp.  Sorry that happened to you but you still have an option. Try working them long path.  You have an antenna which will make the trip if there's an opening.

I'm 58.  I want to work them this trip.  They may never get permission to operate from there again.

Can you climb up and rotate by hand?
