Arggg - he's back on again but the huge line of storms way West of me are causing S7 QRN that makes me not be able to copy him reliably!

ETA:  Signal up and noise down, but can't get through the pile.  Seems he's working mostly EU at the moment.

It's brutal with lots of lightning static QRN and other stuff, but I think I got him on 40 CW just now!  Will know for sure after they get caught up on ClubLog or LOTW uploads.  He's still on 7001 right now.  I've got him and ZD9ZS on all bands except 60 and 80 if this is verified.

He said they would be on all week and part of next across multiple bands. I got him earlier today and he said they would likely be on 40m all night.

They are out there a ways, and 17 tonight was really tough with my trap dipole at about 26'.

They were on 30 Meters this morning and sounded great, but the pile-up was insane and I finally had to head to work.

They just did an upload to ClubLog, and everything I've worked so far is confirmed.

Damn son!  You going to try for 80m?

I've got 10m, 12m and 15m.  I will keep going until I have every band I can hear them on.  At least I have 10m and 12m taken care of.  Those are the ones I always stress about.  You never know if the sun is going to cooperate with those.

I'll try 80 if I can hear them there, but I haven't even seen them spotted there yet.  I had to set my alarm clock both Sat & Sun like it was a work day to get 20, 30, and 40 this weekend.  If I didn't do that I'd be trying to make a contact before work each day next week.

ETA:  10 and 12 were the toughest for me too.

Each morning seems a bit easier since they've been on for while now.  You should be able to get right through on whatever band they're on unless there happens to be a bunch of JA's calling.  That happened to me on 30.

They were on 3526 this morning but I couldn't hear them.  The lowest noise level I saw was S5 and it was mostly QRN crashes up to S9.  I did see the pile-up calling well though.  I think that I have no chance at 80 unless I get my Hi-Z RX array back up, which I may be able to do at the end of this week.

On a positive note, I heard YB4IR/8 really well on 7024 this morning!  Called for a while but couldn't break through the pile-up and had to leave for work.
