It appears the fall DXPedition season is upon us. E6GG, much to my surprise had all my contacts logged to LOTW before I did. Compared to Navassa, that is huge! All within perhaps a half hour.

As of 2200 hrs 15 is still open to the east coast... How cool is that!

Wow! Just checked and got four new band slots. Very impressive DXPedition.

The E6GG bunch are very good ops.  They run a good pileup and are very quick on the LOTW logging, too.
I just worked them on 10 CW which gives me all 7 CW bands from 10-40 Meters.  The 10 CW contact will also give me LOTW confirmation #100 on 10 Meters for DCXX on that band!  Whoo Hoo!  That makes 4 bands... 10, 15, 17, 20.  only need 4 more on 40 Meters to make it a 5th.   Not bad for only working on it for about 2 years.  (all on my flex)  But 80 Meters has a long way to go.  Need a new antenna there.   Now I need to start finding them on Phone.....

Apparently my new T-11 is bringing out the best in my 6500.  The new WNB helps too.  I have several dB noise reduction here.

I have yet to hear them on phone. I was surprised to get them on 10 this late in the day. I got them on 12 just as the sopac opened to the east coast.

Too bad more DXpeditions are not as prompt as E6GG.  I got them on 80,40,30,20, 17 & 15.  I wish I'd had a chance to get them on 12 before we left for the cabin.  I couldn't believe I managed to work them on 80, where I only have a half-dozen countries confirmed.  The 40m QSL leaves me with just 12 more needed there to complete all 7 single-bands 40-10, all done since getting my 6500 in December of 2013.
