The most productive band is still 20m with 17m a distant second.
Needless to say, my peers in the US were happy to pick up even 1 QSO with this radio expedition as trying to make a QSO, with all the lids, jammers, local noise conditions on the island, was difficult at best, impossible for some. KU4XO worked an entire weekend for a QSO (lots of coffee, Mountain Dew, and little sleep. WM4AA spent 8 hours of total calling time to get one QSO. Some, like, ND7J, with sleuth and luck working together, were able to do it with one call. In my case, it was handed to me like a gift by Dave K4SV. I went to Dave's station in Tryon and he was working EP6T on 20m CW when I entered his shack. Within about a minute of my entering the room,Dave worked him and I tail-ended on his TX frequency my call - and he answered TU 599. I had tried to work EP6T on 30m for several nights without much luck although 30m propagation had been good. The day after working him, I went to the station of Bob ND7J and we tried to work them on several bands and modes - 17m CW, 15m phone, 12m phone without any luck. At the time of this writing - only one QSO for me.
