    Well, just got them on 20 CW. Three bands, two modes. I think I am satisfied with this one.

    Is there other software or a setting in WSJT-X that allows them to just let it call and call and walk away for as long as it takes? From what I've seen with WSJT-X & F/H mode you get maybe 5 rounds in of calling before you have to re-enable it to call. I didn't see anyplace you could change that timing. Regular mode allows you go to a fair amount longer and there was a setting where you could adjust regular mode timing. Even still.. you'd think even if you were gonna let it call and call for as long as it takes (and walk away) you would set your software and watch a round or two to make sure you were on the correct sequence. In a pileup like that it's really hard to miss all the other callers calling on the waterfall if you are out of sequence, especially on the lower bands. The upper bands I could possibly see due to skip zones & propagation.

    Worked them with skill (*) on 40m CW and pure luck (**) on 30m CW last night.

    (*) Heard the stations calling him and could figure out the pattern
    (**) Did not hear the stations calling him, transmitted on a random place and he heard me

    Made a lemonade from a sleepless night - lower noise level here, metropolitan area apartment ham radio operator.

    Contacted 40m phone; 30m FT8. Of course Brazil is much less of a challenge than you guys in northern hemisphere... But contacting it was still worth a grin ;-)

    from https://www.m0urx.com/

    March 5th 11:00z: We are pleased to report that we are nearing 70,000 QSOs in the log.
    Our plan is to remain active on the bands throughout the day. We anticipate ending radio operations and going QRT at or near 23:59 UTC.
    Our attention overnight and tomorrow will be devoted to the large chore of packing the gear and then dismantling the camp.
    As stated previously, we will attempt an upload of the log once aboard the Braveheart as we prepare for departure from Signy Island.
    VP8PJ Team
    We will soon begin the process of staging equipment and supplies on the beach for transfer to the Braveheart.

    A number of antennas are being removed as we evaluate our “on air” activities for the remaining hours on the island.
    Slowly, throughout the day, we will take operating positions off-line as we prepare to end our radio operations later tonight.
    We cannot thank the crew of the Braveheart enough for their hard work and assistance throughout this entire DX-pedition. VP8PJ Team
