    Note the "Last QSO in database" date and time (in UTC), if your QSO was AFTER this date/time then it won't be there. Current log shows an updated time of 2014-02-06 12:54:00. They have typically been lagging by 36 hours or more.

    Their log shows me having 3 SSB qso's when it should be 1 SSB & 2 CW on 20. I got them on 20 CW (solid contact) and it showed up as SSB so did it again and again showed up as SSB. I'll do it again and see what happens, listened last night on 20 CW but the zoo was worse then it was the first few days so decided to wait till Monday.

    Just worked them on 20m phone, running 100W into my inverted L. :) They're listening on 14.254 at the moment. Now I just need 15m & 40m.

    Worked him on 20m cw last night , very surprised to find the band open that late, should have been checking those bands all along. Oh well, got him on 20 and 40m now and haven't really made much of effort so Im happy. Nothing here but an end fed wire, home brew tuner, and an old r5 vertical and a paddle . No amp. After hearing him the first few days I didn't expect to be able to work him at all. Im lucky.

    I managed to snag them at 02/08/0218z (last evening) on 20m w/100w & inverted "L".
    I went up to 14027.9 (up 5) & about fell outta my chair when he answered on my second call.
    MADE MY DAY :)
    Now waiting for "log update" (last updated 2014-02-07 13:07:00) .

    Still hoping for a chance to really be able to hear them on 75...so far, no joy..they have been mainly on when E coast and EU hears them, my region is later, but they are usually QRT then on some other band...doubt I would be able to hear them with the lids jamming a weak signal like theirs..and I don't have beverages...Hi. Oh well, another time perhaps...I seriously doubt a mid grade station like mine will be that lucky.....

    That's great! Always nice to get that "new" one in the log...I think they are beating 20 meters to death, wish they could some other low bands....
