    I was tracking them around the clock and one day they used some RTTY, just to appease the old timers like me who love RTTY! But they were dirt weak and hard to decode with MMTTY. Plus the JAs got most of the answers. Then along came the 13 Colonies event which distracted me and by the time I got back to chasing the KH1, I ran out of time. They are long QRT now. Looks like they gave out countless ATNOs. I just needed them on CW and Digital. CW in the log on 3 bands, but SOL on Digital!

    You were distracted by that? There's time to work them after KH1 is done. Neither of us may see another Baker activation.

    Remember: DX Is!

    I called them on FT-8 right up until the moment they sent "KH1/KH7Z QRT". and then they were all gone! Yep, not much chance of anyone going there again in MY LIFETIME, but you never know!!!

    I didn't touch 13 colonies until after KH1 was done. Once KH1 went QRT there was plenty of time to do the whole thing. Besides, 13 colonies is an annual event... if you miss it entirely it will be there next year. Heck, I ignored it entirely for the previous 9 years until this year. Swept it w/ the two bonus stations in under 6 hours.
