Shouldn't it say PST instead of PDT to have 2330UTC be 3:30PM here?

I am listening to 11092.5 USB now and hear nothing.

Yep, sorry that was my typo. I haven't heard anything today either.

Hopefully right about now, they're turning the antenna. :)

I have only one antenna, a 300ft random wire - but it's proven well for DX.
Listening on Icom IC-7000.

Hear the fax station on 11089 usb?

There was a South Korean (HL3ERJ) on 18.135USB booming in.
Can't seem to break thru the group with my 100w.
There's a Russian (UA0FO) on there now 59 here.

Yup I caught the Russian. He's about S3 here but readable with DSP NR turned on. He said he was running 1kw. Seems to be mandatory for long DX. :|

Check out the antenna for HL3ERJ on QRZ. No wonder he booms in :D
UA0FA has a pretty nice looking setup also.

Still not hearing anything on 11092.5 USB.
Think I'll go back to 17 meters before it goes down for the night.
