Not super rare but this would still be an ATNO for me... Be glad to get #250 in the log as it seems I've hit a wall in the last month!

See you in the pileups...

9L1YXJ has also been pretty active lately.  Easy to work on 20 meters the other day.

Congrats! I will keep an ear out for 'em. I also heard another West African station, Ghana 9G2HO, (should be another easy one but...) last night on 40 CW. No luck. It happens.

I remember, just a few short years ago, 20 being open almost around the clock - but with my work/family schedule it's been tough to be at the rig when 20 is open lately. Like everyone else - I'm gonna blame the sun and it's lack of spots! Having fun on 40 and 80 though.

Worked them on 3503 at 4:19 UTC just a little while ago.  It's an ATNO for me, and it was cool to do it on 80.

I'm a happy man.   Grin

Worked them on 80m CW and 30m RTTY last night for a new band and a new mode respectively. Decent signals on my vertical here in NTX.

A little later picked up another new one for 80m - S79AA.

A great evening to be on the air.

You had a good night!

I have the Seychelles on 10M (remember 10M?) but no lower bands at all - great catch on 80 - congrats!

Thanks! It was indeed fun - I'd been expecting/looking for the 9L but for the S7 it was just luck being there when they showed up.

I wish I could've heard the VU station that was on 60m FT8 last night, saw some stations in upper Midwest apparently working them, but hey that's possible excitement for another day.  Grin

I lucked out this afternoon.
Saw SL spotted on 20m, so I fingered, What the heck, I'll give em a try.
Called for about 5 minutes and got thru.
Right after my contact, they went QRT.

That was luck.
