Get it now as it may never happen again LOL.
RATS!!!! That is right when I am driving to Dayton! Doesn't say when it will start, but it supposedly ends May17th. Not a word of this was mentioned at Visalia, so this was a super secret deal. N6PSE was there at Dayton too, you would have thought he would have said something. The website says it might start within a week. This will be the MOTHER of ALL PILEUPS!!! And a real BEAR for West Coast, yet it might be possible long path. I did work the ST0R, so there is Hope!
They WILL have beams and Kilowatts, and top operators, so this is very promising!
Ya, it was kept very quiet. Althought, N6PSE was talking about a top 10 entity being activated this summer. He was just quiet as to who.
I am holding out hope for this. I have been able to get into the log on all of the recent DXpeditions lately and only missed out on YI9PSE. As long as propagation does not flatline, I think i'm good to go. But YES. The pileups will be hugenormous!!
One CW contact is all I need LOL!!!
Pat there are plenty of mountains on your route from which you could work them.
All you really need is to get that ALS-500 for the TC and get it installed before you leave.

A really rare one - Yemen!
Supposedly QRV tomorrow.
Latest tweets, they are onsite:
The pileups will be INSANE!
My amp is ready, beam is aimed...
Never thought I would see it happen. I'll be all over that one!
Starts TOMORROW!!!! APRIL 30th!!!
WARM UP THE KILOWATTS!!! You will need EVERY MILLIWATT of it!!!! Time to SMOKE those antennas!!!!
Hope they plan to listen at least up 5 Khz on 20m SSB. If not, the U.S. is screwed!
That's putting it lightly, good luck on working 'em, Ryan.
How many threads will now get started regarding, lids, tuner up'ers, QRM'ers & other malcontents during this DXpedition?
Ho hum, broken record alert!!!
This will be a big one, but the team is first rate. The SFI is above 115 so the west coast should have propagation on 15-30 and likely 40.
Will watch the first day and see what time the West Coast has propogation. Wonder if I oughta call in sick on Tuesday? I can ALWAYS get another job. I CAN'T always work Yemen!
I will look for them on CW too.
CW is probably our best hope!!
Where did you get that info, Pat? I don't see anything on their web site, unless I missed it.
Someone posted it on the DX Summit
DL1SBF 7O6T operation will get started at 21:00Z on April 30 and until 21:00Z May 15 2057 29 Apr"
Somehow tweeting from the site takes all the allure and magic out of it.
I'd rather have a root canal without pain killers....
Got 'em! Card is in the mail.
