First night I heard K5P fine one a nice post S/R peak on TB 45 minutes
after my SR. Unfortunately the wall from the mainland was
non-penetrable. I noticed from the prop chart that the operation doesn't
see the wonderful opening I an other Caribbean stations would have from
9:00 to 10:00. Even on 80 CW the ops did a great job an hour or so past
my S/R. I know they are concentrating on N/A and I shouldn't try to
nudge them on an hour earlier. But this is the constant dilemma with
Pacific DX-peditions who watch the Sunrise-sunset charts as the boss. I
will also try the EU only attempts at their Sunset but the Euros have an
even more difficult problem of only a few minute window at best. If
only they could stay on after the EU path is closed for a few minutes or
in the alternative set the alarm clock and get one of the top band gurus
to light up the path and forget those darn computer generate SR/SS
charts for just a moment it would be great.
I am going again to the donation page to help a bit with the awesome
expenses and put some money where my mouth is.
