"Fair Winds and Following Seas" for the crew & DXpeditioners aboard M/V Braveheart.
I have worked a lot of DX peditions over my 60 years as a ham. This one was in the top 2. Great pileup control, super fast and efficient operators, when they put out info they stuck to it....all the things that make for a great op. Hope they all get back safely.
Curious who was the other "in the top 2"?
You certainly have a ton of experience - I do hope one day you'll get P5
The first Heard Isl DX pedition many years ago really had its act together in terms of ops, great on line logging, etc. Thanks Dave. Not sure I will live long enough for top of Honor Roll. If P 5 came on today it would be a challenge antenna wise due to recent move here....but we are working on it LOL
listened for the whole time, worked VP6D on 40m ssb, never heard them again on any other band
The last upload to the VP6D log is now complete. The OQRS is now open
Pay attention to the calendar while filling out the OQRS. I initially had November for all my contacts, and had to do it all again.
Yep I BLEW THAT!!! I tried to enter my missing 160m FT8 QSO for OCT 27 in the log but put in November 27!!! Tried to go back and change it but it said ONLY ONE BUSTED CALL/MISSING CALL per Callsign!!! So hopefully they will catch that and know it is not NOVember but OCTOBER!! RATS!!!!!
Although of dubious character, Don Miller was the best at managing a pileup and maintaining an extraordinary rate. Most of the contemporary expeditions are multi-person activities while he often managed it alone of with one other op and achieved comparable qso totals/day. For good reason(s), many of his trips weren't accredited but that doesn't diminish his ability in that regard. I doubt any of the ops on Ducie or elsewhere these days could compete.
Anybody else get this error when using the OQRS? I got a confirmation receipt from both Paypal and the OQRS folks.
