Didn't I see a "Watch for Mt Athos" here?

    Antennas being put up for 15m and 30m by the end of Sept? I've been haunting those bands w/no joy!
    Any newer news?

    There was a SV/a station on 20CW today. SV2RSG. Don’t need it but not many calling so I figured why not and got through on 2nd call. “Right place, right time…”

    Yeah, good for you! I sat in a pileup for a while.

    That’s the dilemma which I think troubles most people when coming upon a pileup for someplace they don’t need - do I play or simply listen because I don’t want to prevent another guy from working something he needs?

    I just listen or go find someone else to work. Sometimes I do just listen to the DX working others.

    Yesterday I listened for Mt Athos but could only barely hear him and not well enough to try to work him. After a while my noise level came up to S4 and then I couldn't hear him at all. It would be an ATNO for me and at 334 they don't come up very often! Over some 40 years of seriously chasing DX I have never heard Mt Athos well enough to try to work them. I have listened for them many times! Oh well...The adventure continues!!

    When I was looking up Mt Athos in the DX spots earlier today I saw an older spot that you had placed and you said "for someone with better antennas than me" in the comments.
    I was feeling your previous pain at that moment! :D

    I worked him, or someone pretending to be him, on 40 m tonight.

    Anyone know the QSL route? The listed manager doesn't say on his page. I sent him an email, but I can't wait!

    Oh, that would be so wrong on several levels.... I truly hope that's not the case.

    If you worked him on CW, and he was working split "UP 4" or so, it's far more likely he's the real deal.

    Most scumbags who pretend to be the DX only run simplex (since the DX is NOT running simplex in cases like Mt. Athos). So as long as you were sending "split" I'm sure you worked the real deal.
