Yes, the DX was operating split (most rare DX stations do operate split).  They 
were transmitting at 10140 kHz and listening up 2-8

There are several ways of making a contact.  One is to find the station the DX 
is working and when they are finished with the QSO,
call the DX on that frequency.  This works a lot of times, yet other times 
there are so many stations calling on the same frequency
that it's better to move to a clear frequency and call there.

I've got a dumb question about RTTY pileups. The other day I was combing around 
30m because the spotting network told me Sudan was
calling. When I got there, there were lots of stations spread out around the 
spotted freq all calling, but I had no idea where the
DX station was, or who they were working. It seemed a little random. I must be 
missing something. Do they work split? I never found
the Sudan station signal.
How are RTTY DX pileups organized?  Do I just find an open spot and start 
sending my call sign. Seems that's what everyone was
doing, but I'd never know if the DX station went QRT. Sorry if this sounds too 
basic, I'm pretty new to RTTY, and never tried a

Thanks for any helpDavid
