    Hoping to get some time this weekend to get 3D2EU on 40 CW ... any stateside work them on the lower bands yet?

    I keep missing them on 80, seems like they are on for a short time, then off somewhere else. Had good copy on 17 this afternoon, plus 40 meters 7.024 with a smoking signal! Got Rotuma on 40 from previous expeditions. Had hoped for some action on ten but not happening.

    Got them on 17 CW today. Smokin' into northern WI. Hoping for some low band action.

    Worked them on 15 SSB for a new band country.

    I think we all get a little cocky now and then as we grab an expedition out of what seems like bedlam. But today 3D2EU just amazed me. I was calling just in "hopes" as I could barely hear them on 30m- it was mostly ESP. But then I heard "K0M?" and called again, and he had my call and we made a good exchange. My hat's off to that OP, and I have to say he is a better CW OP than I.

    I agree with K0MB... 3D2EU has some FANTASTIC ears! I worked them easily from the east coast on 17m CW with about an S-3 signal. But the one that really surprised me was my 15m SSB QSO: He was just barley in there even though I have absolutely no noise on 15m, but he pulled me out through the west coast guys after only a few calls. Thanks guys for the new one making a happy ham :)

    I just heard them on 30m CW and to my surprise I got them after a few calls with 100 W and inverted V. 6m is the magic band? No, for me it's 30m :) 15000km and it was not the first surprise.
