Got them on 20 meters ssb last night. They were loud here - close to 59 - at 8 pm local here in Maine. Took only a few calls.
You can hear the tiredness in the operators' voices at this point - probably a good thing they're rotating in fresh operators. I know they're trying hard to get you 6s and 7s in the log - they are routinely calling for just US West Coast. They're having a bear of a time pulling the few they do hear out of the din.
Why even bother. He's going to find another excuse.
actually, if someone offered this for 9M0L i would have declined. the goal for me is to see how much i can work from my present QTH and with what antennas. i have a yearly total that has been pretty consistent - some get added to the overall total, but for the most part, i'm around 200 DXCC each year with low antennas and 100w. for me, working within the limitations of my budget (haha) and lot size, i think i'm doing pretty darn well. it's tough having big antennas for the low bands with only 0.07 acres on a pie shaped wedge.
Nope. I can't remember if I even heard them - didn't spend much time on the radio during that DXped. I hear next to nothing from the Pacific.
Wouldn't have got through the pileups to Yemen without the AL-811H on either. I hadn't set the amp up in my new operating position and the surprise announcement was what exactly what I needed to get that done.
I'm a fairly new ham, as you can probably tell from my call, and I'm learning a lot about propagation by reading other peoples' experiences with 7O6T and other DXpeditions. Thought I'd volunteer some information if someone else was trying to do the same thing.
