    Looks like operations might have stopped early.

    3D2CR Conway Reef News 23 September 2021

    Due to very strong winds 3D2CR have to stop his operation.
    More info later.


    Also many of the QSO's did not finish with RR73. This appears to be due to a pirate station. I thought I had QSO's on 5 bands but only got the RR73 on 2 bands. It's an ATNO for me so I can't complain.

    Folks!


    The problem with missing RR73 comes from the pirate station that is trying to cause all the trouble. So if you have not got your RR73 you worked the crazy jammer!

    OK folks, what's the real story?.............
    Fake? Pirate?, no RR73/73, No landing permit?
    There must be a dozen stories going around right now.
    I don't want to spread any rumors myself, so asking for someone
    that actually knows whats going on.

    Dom, 3D2USU inform dxnews.com that he is ok.
    He was active today using FT4 mode.
    Its still very windy there and also strong rains.
    Its possible that he will leave Island on Monday, 27 September 2021.
    There is very little chance that he will be able to setup antennas on 80 and 160m.

    I requested the 3D2CR QSL card via Clublog a few minutes ago and they were confirmed in LOTW a short time later. Great op and great DXpedition.

    Apparently no 73 didn't mean pirate after all.
    A host of conditions may have caused this so don't despair
    as I have verified 4 contacts on different frequencies.
    2 of these contacts were on FT8 (yes, I tried it) with no 73.

    BTW,
    Thanks Dom for all the effort that went into the CR Expedition.

    Yeah, I noticed that with my confirmations too. I must look like a real LID with several contacts on 20 and 40 until I finally got the magic "RR73" to make sure it was a "good one" in the log.

    Hat's off to Dom for getting a Most Wanted entity on the air for over a week with multiple FT8 stations running. Judging from what I saw on the cluster and on the screen in WSJT, there are a lot of us who got contacts on several bands. I would have loved a few CW contacts too, but I'll settle for FT8 to get Conway in the log!
