I woke up early o October 7 thinking that I would hear Alaska on 80m. The bands were empty except for T30D - Western Kiribati with a small pileup. He was S1 just peeking out of the noise floor. There were a bunch of loud W4 stations trying to call above him on his split listening range but he was not working any of theme. The callers were about 2-3 kHz up and I was 1 kHz up. He appeared to be working (at least from my vantage point) weaker stations. I was running 500 watts on the KPA500. With a couple of calls he returned to me. I showed up in his log in Clublog a couple of days later.
Nauru C21GC was much easier to work and I was able to get him on 30m and 80m. I would like to get T30D on 80m as well. T30D is spotted early mornings on 80m.
Seychelles S79KB was on 20m CW on October 6.
