    They have uploaded to ClubLog. My 30m, 80m, and 160m CW QSOs are in the log. My effort in the 80m pileup to get through EARLY this morning was LENGTHY.

    I could use them on 6, 80, 160. Not likely to happen from here though haha.

    My nice warm FL location is lacking in room to put a lengthy wire up.

    I feel Lucky to be able to get a random length end fed in the air. :)

    Nothing happening Midday here. Maybe they are working EU now
    Highest band seen on is 17M (no copy here) They seem to be concentrating on 160-20

    I worked them from WI on 160 CW around sunrise yesterday. With about 400 watts to a relatively low, shortened inverted V.

    They sure must have low noise out there! :p

    Got them on 17M and 40M FT8, No luck on the other bands. watching the LEADERBOARD on Clublog for our San Diego DX Club. Was in 4th place, but probably falling behind now. Had to go to the School Halloween carnival and passed out hot dogs. Meanwhile VP6R was calling CQ California! When I got home, found I missed several band modes i needed. Spent the rest of the night chasing and finally was successful on 17M. Went to bed and got up at Midnight to call on 40M FT8. Called for hours and hour til I finally gave up and went to bed. This morning at 5AM, went downstairs and worked them on 40M without too much trouble. Guess they weeded out the sea of JAs calling for a bit.

    Have to go to Church this morning and then watch the Chargers game afternoon. Hope I don't miss any Golden opportunities! About the time the game ends it should be Prime time to work Pitcairn!
