I am over the moon with working Saint Paul Island CY9M today on 10m.
I have been trying for days without any success. They were workable on 40 and 30m, especially 30m, but the wall was just too big and I had no chance of a QSO.
Today at 12:30z I was lucky enough to be one of the first to see them being spotted as being active on 10m CW. I was there in a flash. The VOCAP predictions did not show any chance of propagation between us so I was a bit negative, but I was extremely pleased to see them romping in with a S7 signal. One single call and the deed was done……
Once again I must say I have huge respect for the very capable DX expeditions. This CW operator was most capable and efficient.
This QSO should give me my DXCC on 10m with 100 confirmed entities.
