    I listened to them and the pileup for a while on 20m cw this afternoon while they were working the US, Europe and JAs concurrently. Don't need it so didn't call. The only problem i noticed is the seeming abundance of people who can't figure out how to push a 'split'button on their appliance.

    I heard them too on CW. The level of competency on split operation is at a new low.

    I was able to work them at 12:24Z on 40m CW into EL09PN this morning. They were 579. Since then I have heard them a lot weaker than that on 20m. Tried on phone for 30 min but the west coast wall is too high.

    At 9:00Z I could barely hear them on 20cw - did hear some of the EU stations calling them 3 up. For the next hour they never were really above the noise.

    Tried to work it on 40m SSB this morning. They got part of my call.... once. :(

    So, went to 30m FT8 and in less than 10 minutes...

    Same here. I am messing around with FT-8 today. It has been a long time since I last used it at all. I am not sure what I am doing with it anymore. RTTY is more fun.

    You must use ver 1.9 to use the Fox/Hound feature. A must read to understand and setup is the FT8 Dxpediton Mode User Guide from K1JT.

    Spent truly all day trying to get the #$#$#@#@#*^*&^ FT-8 to work. It was transmitting at first, but things went downhill from there. Now it randomly shuts down my laptop with some kind of FATAL ERROR that the computer decides requires a reboot.
    So I TORE MY HAIR OUT all day. I copied them fine, lotta good it did!
    The more I try to use FT-8 the more I HATE IT!!!
    I only pray they will do some good old fashioned RTTY before the expedtion is over!!!
