Update. Info. Rx fr Arnaud.
I finally managed to get onto the radio tonight as FK/JG1XMV. It was a busy day and missed the propagation window with Europe. Started calling at about 10.30z on 40m. Quite a few contacts with stations in the USA for a brief period as the band opened-up. Some very very strong signals mostly from the central and Eastern USA. VK and ZL stations were very strong as expected. JA stations a bit weak and hard to pull out through the pile-up. My friend Yves, FK4RD, has an incredible set-up on 40m, it was a joy to work DX with his station. Thanks Yves! We have been busy working on our plans to go to Lifou and Mare now the Cyclone is gone. We are hoping to finalize something date-wise in the next 48 hours. 73!
