I've tried the "VFO Shuffle" once, (had to, the TS-120 I was using didn't have 2 VFOs) but didn't have much luck doing it.
Looks like they have uploaded recently. Thanks!

Thank You to everybody who worked us.
Just to clarify a few things, we did not work EU mostly on purpose and not west coast. We landed on the east side of the island (which was safest at that point in time, almost didn't land at all). The antennas had a clear shot to EU. Also we worked countless W6 and W7's across multiple bands, many with extreme strong signals. If you did not get in the log, we are sorry. We do not have any control over the propagation. If we hear you, we work you.
Also, St. Paul is not an easy place to get to and that is why there are so few operations there. If you can find a skipper in the area that knows Island landing spots to take you there, the landing is very difficult and takes a lot of planning and teamwork. It took us 6 hours just to load the stuff onto the small shoreline via a smaller support boat. That is not including the 20 foot cliff we had to get everything up via heavy pulling / lifting and ropes. The team of 10 was so exhausted, we were lucky to get 1 station on by the end of the 1st day.

Thanks for going, Kevin.
I recall reading something earlier about two sites, and the team would use which ever the sea allowed.
Reading your post, it sounds like we were lucky you landed at all.
Glad CY9M could pull it off, and thanks for the qsos.
Thanks for you effort activating CY9M!!!
Say hello to my friend & fellow Greek, Victoria, SV2KBS who was a CW op on your DXpedition.

Please, no disrespect meant as far as the wonderful job you guys did and the very difficult access. I had no idea it was that tough. I tried several nights and just couldn't hear U except once on 15CW.
Thanks for putting on a very rare entity. Maybe a Helicopter would have made things easier.
I could never hear you either, but then, I work weird hours. But thanks for the activation.
And Kevin, the t-shirt arrived. Thanks!
