Who\'s going to try and work them? I got them on 20 meter CW earlier, hopefully I can find them on some more bands later on.

I worked them on 15 phone last Saturday with 100 watts.  I had tried to work them on 20 meters Thursday and we had a bad thunderstorm come through and I had to pull the plug quick.  It was neat to work them.  I also worked the USS Lexington on 20 meters Saturday.  I had not worked a ship before.  That was cool as well.

I managed to work VP6DX on 17, 15, 40, 80 in both CW and SSB. 20 M CW, I could never break the pileups on 20 SSB. I also worked them with 10 watts on 17 SSB just to see if I could do it!

 Not bad for 100 watts and a G5RV which is not that high up at the apex.

Never heard them on 12 or 10 meters due to propagation here in southwest Ontario.

They did a great job. I know a couple of times I worked them their signal was S5 or less, so I know I was not that strong to them.
