I just got LOTW confirmation for my 4th band with the EP DXpedition. I doubt I could have ever made the QSOs without my Flex. Band conditions were not that good and the Flex gave me the edge I needed. It's also a big bonus to have confirmations with LOTW. So much more convenient then mailing cards.

Thanks Flex!

Congratulations.  You east coast guys are lucky to have been able to hear him.  They were never above an S1-2 here, even with a -130db noise floor.

Congrats, Jon! Well earned. Disappointed not to have worked them here. Think maybe once they copied your call slightly wrong? Maybe enough to make an "E" into a "T"?

Barely S0 on the Left Coast even on 30M CWSkimmer--- But I detest CW.. so no CW Q's for me...

When they were finally working 20M SSB - they worked W1-W5
They were barely copyable S0-1 but with my big station they should easily copy me
Even though I was remoting into my station in San Diego from Los Angeles at the time, as several friends in the middle east gave me S9+20 reports..

But instead of working W6 the *%#*$% switched to CW....

 No Joy...

Never heard them again on SSB...

So to the best of my knowledge few if any W6 QSO's

Which, of course, is not too wise as a significant amount of the DXpedition Monies originates from the Left Coast.....

Needless to say, no play with W6, no pay from W6....

I heard them in Indiana on 30, 40, & 20 CW and the pileups were horrendous! I couldn't get through with 100 Watts and dipoles & verticals. Then ran out of time and couldn't find them again. Bummer!
