G0NMY -- Stop your silly complaining. We should be so lucky to have this activity and all you can comment is for your QRP nonsense? What makes you any better than a DXpedition? QRP Frequency? Give us a break!!

Why Choose a Freq of 7027 then cause QRM to INTERNATIONALLY AGREED QRP FREQ 7.030 Your bad choice spoils others hobby, we cant use the frequency when you are just below and saying UP! UP! It seems whenever a contest or a DX-pedition happens all agreed rules are cancelled! This is not HAM RADIO!

Hello Gang! You are being heard here in NJ loud and clear 56 to 59 (between 1600Z to 1700Z today 11th Oct. Unfortunately, you don't seem to hear many many stations calling you from NA. Better antenna and radio needed may be? Thank you for the efforts and best of luck. 73,
