Anyone know if the XR0ZRC DXpedition has listed any FT8 frequencies? The
information on their website is very limited and does not contain
frequencies. By chance I found them on 7.056 FT8 last night but they faded
when I moved the antenna although I don't have any information to suggest it
was a pirate. Just weird they were strong the first time I decoded them
(+2), moved the antenna and they were weaker (-15). Moved the antenna back
to where it originally was and they were gone. Several stateside stations
continued to make contacts. I stayed a bit then went QRT.
They were not using Fox & Hound. They were using a derivative of WSJT-X
which was probably from JTDX or similar. They were transmitting on the ODD
cycle which was a dead giveaway they weren't using F&H. I'm hoping to work
them on 80 and 160 FT8.
BTW, while monitoring 7.056 this evening, see a couple stations calling
7P8LB on FT8. No copy here.
