Ken, LA7GIA also updates readers that he has now installed a 30+40m antenna earlier today at the 3C7A QTH.
Really been hard to work in Midwest/Great Lakes region with the East Coast wall and then almost all EU yesterday. But he does have a good signal and is a great operator.
Thank you for the new DXCC Ken. It was really tough from ZL but you have made several Kiwis very happy by taking a break from your EU pileups to work us down here in the South Pacific.
Ken has been a great signal here in Scotland all of this week with modest setup. Well done Sir!
Oh and Thanks for the ATNO too
just needs to find a microphone now
it seems the prog just does not like du land. I keep trying, but your sig are below martin luther.
Over 1.000 QSO’s day after day. Deep respect! Thanks for a QSO in rtty, cw and phone!
MM0SJH would be better if you use CW. Its just 100 times better for pileups, and the number one tool for any serious DXer.
Total bias towards CW :-)
How about a bit more SSB, especially 12/17m ?
(@ Per – and I do consider myself a serious DXer, for more than 40 years – everyone to his/her own preferences)
7% SSB is actually very good numbers..(?)
Its so fun on 15 cw nw, I work many weak stations with 5-10W I can barely copy. I even myself TX with 5W for an hour yesterday just to see if there was any difference , and it wasn’t. Would not be possible with ssb style. Its just my choice.
I just say CW is so much better if you need a QSO Chris. Would be much better to put in the effort to learn it, instead of asking the DX to operate inferior modes.
I worked VK9CK with S-zero (preamp in) on 15M today.
Could never have been done on SSB.
Regarding WARC/SSB, Ken tweeted he can only operate CW on WARC due to restrictions in 3C.
Ken, please inform us when you plan to be QRV on 40 and 80m?
When will be last full day of your operation in 3C?
The date can be found on his website. No 80M afaik, but 30M & 40M coming days.
Regarding the 5W operation, please remember that there is a huge difference in propagation between 3C and East Coast, compared to 3C and West Coast of US. If your goal is to simply work a buttload of W1-W5′s, you’ll do it with no effort, but that will leave a lot of us in the Northwest with no ability to even hear you.
Considering the SFI of 91 and A index 22, any openings on such days anywhere from here are shallow and short.
Thanks for your effort and 73.
Finally got you for #332 ATNO on 15 CW after 12 hours on air trying!
I really appreciate the quick and efficient CW operating style Ken uses, now successfully from Equatorial Guinea, previously from Comoros. SSB is fun as well, but for to be sure to have him in the log nothing beats CW. The rates and daily QSO numbers are great for a one man pedition. Thank You for two new ones from Africa within 6 months Ken! Where are you off to next?

Hi, Ken tnx for the contact, congratulations for activition very good signal has been here in Caracas Venezuela Thanks 73s YV5HNJ
Thank you for giving me an ATNO!
I know your excellent operation technique and your good ears. I could have your reply after a few-minutes try although I have a just average station running 100 watts with tri-bander.
I expect you to visit 3C0 next!
