    They are on 60M now but only working EU. 5358.5 USB FT8 Stateside stations are being ignored.
    I wonder if DX Summit has blacklisted me. Whenever I post a spot it doesn't show up. But when I use my wifes call it comes right thru. Maybe whoever runs it is hating me cuz I have so many QSOs

    I looked for other calls before and after mine. (WP4G, CX3AL, AB9V, AB8AL, and K9EXY). None of them are in the log update either.

    Either that was a pirate (+3 to Pitcairn when PSKReporter was showing nothing), or simply a log yet to be uploaded?

    Unfortunately, it is just too easy to change the callsign in WSJT-X. So it could have been a bootlegger, Keep after them, they are getting alot easier to work now that the demand has gone down. Still another week to go too!

    I need to constantly monitor the DX SUMMIIT as they can add bandmodes they haven't tried before. They still need to get on 160 FT8, and 75,10 and 12M SSB! Stats show they are working twice as much CW as the other modes. But then they have some of the TOP Contestors in the world on the team!

    They will really go crazy this weekend with the CQ Worldwide PHONE Contest!, So even though U already worked them, they want as many Qs as Possible during that time. It is perfectly OK and Highly desired for you to work them again on as many bands as possible during the contest! They might win the Contest from there! By then they will have weeded out every possible Ham who needs them for a ATNO country. The use of FT8 Fox and Hound has made it possible for Hams who never would have a prayer in a full blown pileup to get logged and confirmed for Pitcairn! And after the contest they can wind down and pack up for home, in what has to be the most successful and outstanding DXpedition of the Century!!

    Might not be busted. I looked up the call.. KM6MHZ has a QRZ page filled out, appears to be active on HF and is striving towards DXCC. He's had his ticket since 2016 and I'd put money on it that it's a good QSO.

    Looking for 80 CW - got up early this morning but they were FT8 only at the time ... did work OX1AA though.

    The VP6R team has planned well - good activation with lots of skilled ops. Already over 30K QSOs!

    Harumph. Looks like that strong signal last night was a pirate. I'm not showing up in the log.
