Algeria 7X3FG (Mohamed) on 20m psk31 mode 14.070.150 & QSL's via LoTW. Good copy here in WV, but getting weaker.

I also worked FO4BM in French Polynesia SSB on 10m about 5pm today. With the vertical Imax 2000 antenna on a 20' pole! New one for me!

Got them on 20 SSB last night and 10 SSB just now!  

The 40 CW pile-up last night was insane!  No way I was blasting through that and he didn't move enough for me to try using any real skill.

Currently on 24955 and the callers are taking the rest of the band up and beyond!

Dang it! I've been checking the spots & listening for them, even tried to hear them CW, nary a peep! At work now, maybe 10m will hold up till I can get home.

FT4TA 3523 up 4 or so usually, but anywhere from 1 to 10 up.  Great signal and still building here, just nailed him!

ETA:  They were on 40 CW a bit ago and some people were calling at over 12 kHz up.  No, I didn't work them that time.

7V7V Algeria (Special event station) on 14.222. Big pile-up. It took me about 5 minutes and 1.5kW to break through. His signal is picking up though.
Also, there are a lot of Eastern European stations on 20 meters.

14,219.97KHz USB, TM0RHUM

VERY strong french accent. Funny that as soon as I got his call right, repeated it, and got him to confirm, he had a pile-up. He's hard to understand, but good guy.

He's got a webcam that appears to be almost real-time:

FT4TA on 21285 - Lost of guys on the E & W coasts working him but he's been super light here all day and like right now, I can't hear him at all.

VK9DLX on 24920.8 RTTY - 100% copy and I just worked on the first call.

Every time I think they've packed up and left I work them one more time!  According to their web page there are still a couple guys there working on the higher bands.  http://www.lordhowe2014.org/news/index.php?task=shownews&id=10



ETA:  And FT4TA is on 10115 right now.  Come join us, it seems that everyone is there.  The lids, cops, tuner-uppers, and a few thousand normal hams calling.  Now gone...  Back but weaker, jammers back too....

Last night it was all I could do to barely work 5R8M on 40 SSB with few callers, but they're in the log.  Tonight they are coming in great here.    Try it now if you can because they're done soon.  7136 simplex but the swarm is forming...

Signal is great here and the pile-up seems tame.  No lids at the moment!

ETA:  Best I've heard them on SSB and great op.  We have one COP and he is efficient and fast.  Makes me almost want to say,  "Thank you officer!".

I've been trying to get them on 160 in the early morning here.  Heard them yesterday but no copy this morning.

Thanks for the QSL card too!!!  Very nice!

FT4TA is active tonight but they need to pick up the pace or the pile-ups will be like this until they're over.



ETA:  Shortly after I posted that they started doing great on CW and RTTY.  Never knew they listened here.    Working contacts smoothly at a good pace until the propagation ended here.  They also uploaded to LOTW earlier, so they get a few more points.  If they keep this up it might turn out well.

20 m band was dead in the evening but it opened up at around midnight. I called CQ and had a pileup of Russian stations that lasted for 2 hours.  My throat hurts.
The band is wide open to eastern Europe right now if anyone is up this late.
