    Another one for the east coast.

    This one went easier than 7O6T. I busted this one out in just a few minutes.

    But I could kill the broadcaster 1kc up. Made me pull my hair out as i beat every bit of filtering on my radio so it let me hear JUST enough to work them.

    This gonna suck out west. Other Somalia stories?

    Got them 15m CW, on the first day.

    For the west coast, it's another polar path. Good luck.

    I only have one contact with Somalia from 1983 on phone.
    Guess I'll give it a go for a CW contact at least.

    The broadcaster probably helped you get the QSO. I was in the same pile up as you. I noticed that there were not too many callers, most likely due to the QRM. I pulled out all the stops to get rid of the QRM but he's way too close for the DSP to do any good. I found his listening frequency and made my call. I had to repeal my callsign a few times just to be sure he got it, as it was difficult for me to copy his confirmation. His signal was no better than 7O6T.

    Anyone know if an on-line log exist?

    Definitely another back yard DX pedition for East Coast. The broadcaster on 271 is K1MAN.

    Brad I only have heard them 2 times and both were to weak for a solid copy and I need them. There are 4 would be new ones out there for me right NOW and I only have 1 of them.

    I heard them DIRT WEAK, and 1000s of callers. Just about the same situation as the 7O. Lotsa LUCK from SOCAL without SUNSPOTS!!!
