Thank you guys for ATNO on CW 20M last evening. Amazing you could copy me with 100W and a mobile whip. The signal was just above noise level, and suddenly a QSB up to S3 for a 5 minutes duration, and that was enough to QSO!. 73 Paul

Your doing a great job on the lower bands. Both 80 and 40m were new bands for me. I missed you on 160m so far but will be looking for you at your sunset or later. Have fun. 73, John.

If could try NA 40 meters cw mode long path 23:15-23:45 utc this should work for eastern Canada & USA. My wx forecast next few days snow, freezing rain and that will exclude many on80-160m. Great work with 4x operators.

Hi Sid Got this news from VK9CK team right now: "News update from VK9CK Team They have not got RX antennas to work on 80/160, but they use TX antenna also as RX, which worked satisfactorily. VK9CK team has been working on a plan to find the best possible time for NA / SA and tested it out during the day today. The plan worked, and they will therefore attempting to call NA / SA during the times when it is possible." Good Luck and good DX de Rune, LA6YIA

Spend 2 hours on 21030 between 06 -00 and 08 -00 GMT calling you but you were too busy working JA. Setup here 3 el Yagi at 40 m up and 600 W. Would be helpful if you turn you antenna off JA sometimes.

The VK9CK guys have just arrived. They have not put up all the antennas yet, but that will be during the day. They are not 100% operational yet. best 73s de Rune, LA6YIA

Hello boys! Good luck with your DX-pedition! Lars, don´t forget to listen for West Coast SA, we are the antipodes here. 30-40-80M window of opportunity is very narrow 11 to 11.30 UTC max... Less probable ur SR... If you are heard on other bands, I will let you know... Good luck and stay safe! HC2AO
