    Over the past couple days I have seen several rare DX stations (primarily Africa) pop up for one or two QSO's then disappear. I suspect a pirate at work. If anyone reading this has any knowledge of operations from the following callsigns, please let me know.

    TY3APD-Benin
    SO1RZV-Western Sahara
    9Q5XJB-Democratic Republic of Congo
    8U6JQL-India
    5S1VZR-Madagascar

    I'm guessing it's a licensed operator because a kid or unlicensed operator would generally not have the knowledge of rare DX countries. In addition, none of the calls used have matches in QRZ.

    I saw some strange calls on JT65 last night, but didn't work anyone. I just don't have the patience for JT-65. U need to spend 4 or 5 minutes for a QSO, while on CW or SSB it would be only a few SECONDS!

    Yes, 14.076. Watch pskreporter for the station to pop up. Saw 5L8MQN showing the same pattern...

    Add 7Q1WMN to the list at 02:20utc.... and TJ2YHA at 0230utc. None of the pirate station transmissions have an actual grid square--he is using the generic grid for the country in all cases.
