What a pile too – at app’x 0700 UTC on 14187 SSB, I was reading T32C at 3/4, and later peaking up to a 4/5 - I did have to go out and he was still running at 0900, I have absolutely N O intention of chasing the pack with my basic set up here and most certainly not with SSB, I might attempt a proper contact using CW later on in the month when the “Big Guns” ease off a bit – let me say also here I am staggered at the “Moronic” antics of some stations ! Whistling, Breathing, Cooing, and Tuning, and still some of these guys are using the wrong frequency LISTEN ! most DXpeditions run split – read the manual for your radio and learn.
I wont even bother looking at the Phone end again, reckon I’ll stick to CW, much easier !
