— W2LJ’s Blog – QRP – Do More With Less. –: This could be a very good week for DX.


Sunday, November 23, 2014This could be a very good week for DX. Next weekend is the CQ WW DX contest. Traditionally, this is the week the Big Guns, as well as those traveling to a DX location, specifically for the contest, get ready.You may very well hear lots of good DX throughout this coming week, if band conditions remain as good as they have been lately.This is the time for budding QRP DXers to make hay. The pileups should not be too, too fierce before the actual contest. This is prime time, if you’re a QRPer who loves to chase DX.The actual contest itself, is also a great opportunity. However, it’s my opinion and observation that neophyte QRPers would do well to wait until the first 24 hours of the contest have passed.By the second day of the contest, the CW “speed demons” generally tire a little and slow down their speed a bit. At the beginning of the contest, there are many stations who send CW at buzz saw speeds – not so much later on.Also, on the second day, particularly towards the end, many of these monster contest stations are still looking to rack up as many points as possible. If your signal is on the weak side, it’s at this point you are most likely to find stations willing to dig your signal out. Take advantage of that.In any event, have fun! It is entirely possible for the budding QRPer  to get 1/2, if not more, of QRP DXCC done in a single weekend.72 de Larry W2LJ QRP  – When you care to send the very least.Posted by Larry Makoski at 6:07 PM Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to PinterestLabels: contesting, DX, DXCC, Operating.

Some excellent advice for the new QRP operator from Larry Makoski (W2LJ).  Larry suggests waiting for the first 24 of  a contest (in this case, the upcoming CQ WW DX Contest) to pass before you wade in.  Larry believes this is a good strategy, because “many of these monster contest stations are still looking to rack up as many points as possible.”  Such stations may be willing to give your low-power signal a chance to be heard.  If propagation holds out for the rest of the week, a QRP station could collect many contacts on the way to the DXCC Award.  With low-power stations, patience is a virture.

FT4TA Tromelin Island DXpedition Drawing a Crowd


FT4TA Tromelin Island DXpedition Drawing a Crowd

TAGS: ARRL Colvin Award, ClubLog DXCC, European stations, hf band, Indian Ocean, long path, low bands, north america, operators, Tromelin Island, wanted list, west coast

11/06/2014

Pileups on the HF band are “still big and wide,” according to the FT4TA DXpedition team on Tromelin Island in the Indian Ocean. Operators say they’re doing their best to find “the best balance between rate and bandwidth usage;” the sprawling and, many would say, unruly pileups are a result of the “thousands still calling.” Over the November 1-2 weekend, DXers and ARRL November Sweepstakes CW participants competed for elbow room on the bands.

 

“We know many of you still need Tromelin for an all time new one. So narrowing pileups too much would not be good for you,” a team update said this week. “Also, there is no band open where we can stay ‘all day long.’” Operators have conceded that working the US or Oceania is not easy unless European stations stand by — “and this is something quite difficult to achieve.”

The FT4TA DXpedition has said its operation is a chance to get Tromelin Island off the Top 10 most-wanted lists. Right now, it’s number 8 (mixed) on the ClubLog DXCC Most Wanted List. Operators at FT4TA report a lot of “unique” call signs in their log. “Keep your fingers crossed — you’ll make it !” they added.

The DXpedition reports excellent propagation with several bands open at the same time for Japan, Europe, and North America. “We are trying to give the same chances to everyone,” the team said, urging those attempting to snag FT4TA to respect their on-air instructions regarding which areas of the world they’re focusing on. “Operators at FT4TA won’t get you if they are not calling your area,” they said.

“We have been able to enjoy some short openings with the West Coast on [long path],” they said. “We will keep our efforts on low bands and try again to be on 160, 80, and 40 at our sunset,” although 75 meter SSB operation was not in the team’s plan “and we are not sure to try again as conditions on this band are not the best for SSB.”

The six-station operation has “found a good rhythm, working radio until falling asleep on the keyboard, eat, sleep, radio, repeat. Everyone is tired but over-motivated to satisfy the entire community.”

The FT4TA DXpedition will be uploading its logs to Logbook of The World (LoTW). FT4TA operation will continue until November 10 (UTC). The DXpedition is the recipient of an ARRL Colvin Award grant.

The hottest and most wanted DX this week comes  from the Indian Ocean, where a team of experienced contesters is operating FT4TA from Tromelin Island. The ARRL reports that HF pileups are “still big and wide”, as operators are trying to find “the best balance between rate and bandwidth usage.”  The station will be operational through 10 November 2014.  The DXpedition is supported, in part, by an ARRL Colvin Award Grant.
