I first went to chase Ascension Island on 30m when I saw the spot for Sierra Leone on 17m. Since I was just there for CW night with N0TR, I was able to quickly get back on 17m and found the DX working with a straight key or a bug. He was very copyable though. He had a reasonable size pileup. It took about 15 minutes of calling before he acknowledged me. I later found Ascemsion Island ZD8O on 20m CW but could not break through the pileup before the DX called QRT.
