I spent 3 hours last night listen and trying to work XR0.. when they
were decent copy IN AZ about 0400,,.. when there were Many NA, stations
calling along with a lot of Eu,, but VERY few made it into their
log..Then about 0500 or so,, they started asking for EU only..and the
band was FULL of EU up at least 3 KHz...but again very few making it
into the log,,,BUT ZR0 was good copy for me the whole EU run.. Then
about O600 they stopped asking for EU, and then the NA stations that
were still on the band started calling,, I heard them work WA7NS about
90 miles north of me,, and I called them right after a few times and
worked them about 0620...they were a real 569 to me from 0500 till they
stopped calling CQ not long after I worked them...
they were definitely struggling to hear.. MANY "BIG" gun stations both
NA and EU,, did not make it last nite,,
It took perseverance last nite,, and a LOT of Luck for those of us that
made it into their log..
That's My report from AZ...
