    Incredible 21 MHz propagation today! They answered me on the third attempt on 100W and simple GP!

    S9OK QRG Band plan updated version. Due to the interstation interference and the USA bandplan we have to change our QRG on 80M CW and 17M FT8.

    I'll ditto your praise. Only a great op could have pulled my 80W out of the horde. Worked them on 30m just now, using a 20/15m yagi with massive VSWR. The xcvr cut-back circuit was protecting the finals thank goodness. Good for a band-country, and it was a kick.

    Really good operators indeed. I'm not greedy - have them on 20 CW and 15 FT8.

    I'm like you Dave... (Not Greedy) - I got them on 40m & 17m CW with 100w & a 20ft high 80m OCF Dipole - (the dipole was a inverted vee with the apex @ 50ft until Hurricane Sally took down my 80ft Pine Tree last year !) :(

    I guess nobody's greedy then. The ice storm in February took my WARC and low-band antennas. My last band-country was in 2019. Chasing S9OK was a real hoot, because it's being run first-rate, and I'd not heard a big pile in over a year.

    Good huntin'.

    I got them the first evening (10/4) on 20M SSB and then 20M FT8 three days later on 10/7 -- after I figured out fox and hound mode. Lol!
