Speaking of DXPeditions...
All I can say is...WOW !!!
I don't know where to begin, so I'll STHU.
Tonight on 20m is the first time they're strong enough for me to hear. 15m was bust today, as was 17m.
At least I got them on 1 band.
I know what to say but it is hard to convey the message via a text format.
Just call it S.L.O.W and say each letter after you chug a beer.
Then you will have taken up as much time as each of their contacts are, and you will get the same nausea feeling.
S9 noise, nothing but noise.
Yeah wow indeed. Anyway, 20, 40 and 12 in the log.
I'm in the fray now on 40, nada. This last op was OK, maybe 2/minute. I threw up a 80 M vertical today just in case I need it. Not looking hopeful, how depressing, they are LOUD here in MD.
Are these guys for real? I have not heard anyone operating like they do on CW since . . . . since . . . . well . . . . never.
I think I've been seeing on 6m and 10M spots. Have not heard them yet.
It is strange indeed. And coming off the backs of FT5GA, it's scary. At least the K4M and TX5SPA guys are keeping hope alive. I liked the spot, "Roger and Nigel, pse help!!". Classic.
I know you are not supposed to enjoy the bogus spots, but still... ... ! Trying to work them is like watching the Redskins: you thought you saw the WORST, but then comes yet another Sunday...
It's #49 on the Most Wanted List, and they are on 10 meters for hours with a solar flux of 70. Priceless. Jim Zorn would be fired for such a move (well, maybe not FIRED, but relieved of all decision-making duties).
