    Pat, with the possible exception of today (I wasn't around the radio) they were on cw, on some band (some days a couple) every day they were there.

    I didn't find them on RTTY at all, the digi op, Jorge TI2HMJ, only does PSK. He operated some PSK, but not much.

    From what I've read, it took a concerted effort from all the team members to get this dxpedition off the ground and running.

    Hat's off to them, I think they did a FB job under less than ideal conditions.

    Congrats to everyone who managed a ATNO.

    New One for me so I'm not complaining. But much tougher than I thought it would be. Most of the CW hours when they would have been a 3-inch putt from here were EU only. And so it goes with a limited number of operating positions, etc.

    Thanks to Dom and Crew!

    Yes- yes we are!

    I got a copy of W9KNI's "The Complete DXer" when it first came out...I was enthralled at the adventures, on both sides of the QSO. The quick-draining battery; the quick exits from dangerous islands....

    This week, between TI9 and K1N I'm finally hooked. Getting up in the middle of the night, timing the calls, staying ahead of the spots...what a great time. And all with a piece of wire 10 feet off the ground. What a blast!

    First day I was wondering if I was going to get in the log at all; ended up with five bands (12,15,17,20,40) all phone. I hardly heard them on 10 and never on 75. Whatever, I'm a happy camper!

    DXing is crazy sometimes.

    I was only able to manage one contact, but once I saw it was "in the log" I didn't try TOO hard. I figured there were lots of ops still needing just one :)

    I like the way you roll. I did the same. No point in being a DX Pig when the island may never be activated again in one's lifetime.
