Hi guys, thanks for contact and the effort. Since 2004 till 2006 I was active under callsign of Radio club CRA EP3PTT from Tehran and I know that it is a hard work to make QSO in high noise conditions and a big international "interference".
Thanks a lot and have a safe trip at home.

Long Path to W-coast
Sad again once sig starts to hit 58 on the west coast Long Path with all the W5's and NON West Coast OP's calling HE LEAVES to CW.. why? why not just tell everyone to standby and take control of the pileup... just a thought I know the world is calling being rude etc.. but wow we lose out for this?
Saturday, 24 January 2015 15:59
well done with all that you have achieved, given your circumstances, i have not made the log yet, but dont expect to , given your noise floor. kind regards and good luck on your journey home

Thank you to the Rockall Team (including those back home) for another first class DXpedition under challenging conditions. I am sure you are all now very tired but still with the focus of great number of QSOs over the weekend. I would imagine there have been many challenges for you while there, which we do not even know about. Getting Ham radio exposed on Iranian TV was quite an achievement. Will that recording be available to view anywhere?
Thank you also to your hosts. I hope all have had a good time. ALL DX'ers salute you thank you.

Very difficult path for WØ call area
Very difficult path for midwest USA (WØ). Please keep continue to look for NA on 20/17m starting from around 1300z. You were very workable on 17m CW this morning but the East coast wall is like impenetrable iron curtain for the midwest USA, WØ call area in particular. Is it too much for me to ask you to look for WØ only? 2 or 3 more days are left so there is still a hope but we are running out of time.

Finally the QRM got lower with a positive impact on your rate. Surprised to work you on 17 & 12m cw with no s-meter deflection during the small NA Z:5 window. More people should read your update to better understand how bad is your receiving noise. Good luck

Its been extremely difficult to work EP6T on low bands from Norway (especially in the auroral zone).
But we understand the priorities for DX, and the problems with local noise. Signals on 80M has been 579 frequently, so I will continue to try on 40 and 80M until you shut down.
Thanks for being there!

Hi guys, I understand your frustration with all the noise. I know you have been trying hard as I have listened many hours. Tks for the new one on 80 M. Don't think 160 will be in the cards with conditions. Some say you work EU when calling USA but I understand if you cant hear any USA after a number of tries there is no choice but to move back to EU. . 73 Mike K4PI

I am NOT one of your jammers but I can see good reason that there are so many people upset with your operating practices. You will ask for NA and take any and all Europeans that call just to get someone in the log. You have created your own mess in doing this. I can understand you want to work your own home continent but when Europe has propagation 24 hours a day you could try to work the area you are calling for not just the easy, loud callers who are out of turn. You are rewarding the the impatient ones. As usual, the US pays and Europe plays. You won't see this type of behavior from the US-sponsored Dxpedition to Navassa Is, K1N.

Thanks for trying
First, thank you all for being there. I know its very difficult with the noise and propagation you are having to deal with. The windows to NA are short and the EU and other DQRM is horrible but I do not blame you all for their behavior.
Admittedly I give up on trying to work you all. Never above .025 on 10/15/20m and the DQRM is just horrible to hear you all thru.
Thanks again for all your efforts and have a safe trip home. I look forward to someday another DXE going that might have better condx to work with and at a time of the year that would give NA/SA a better chance.
Cheers and again a safe trip home.

Work Europe/NA more frequent
Spend last 3-4 days listening and you should shift more frequently between europe and north america. Waited for hours and signal almost gone, then you go qrt. All the best signals to nothern europe is when you work NA. Generally you are doing a great job ! If its not for those jammer idiots it would be great. A lot of operators has no brain ruining it for the serious hams.
Dean - 8P6SH/8P2K
Thursday, 22 January 2015 14:00
Huge pileups and good operating but...
I know you are functioning under less than ideal band conditions but I think there are some things you could do to keep more people happy. RTTY should be on maybe 2 or 3 bands. CW should be on one band as much as possible and SSB in the specific conditions you have coule be on say 10 and 15m. I say this as someone with greatest proficiency in SSB and least proficiency in CW but it's the only way to keep your rates (especially to NA fairly high). When 10m is ope to NA you should have your best (cw) op on and keeping the rate up.
i'm not an expert by any means but I have been very very frustrated trying to work you. There seems to be no consistency and hence the frustration.
Anyway best of luck. I hope to work you at least once but have fun and may the dx gods be good to you.

You are doing a superjob in the tremendous big pile-ups regardless the stupid comments on the DX clusters. Don't get affected by all the lids causing deliberate QRM, even though it's very frustrating for all of us.

Working Zone 3
I don't know if anyone in Zone 3 has worked you on anything below 20 meters, but if you really want to work the US West Coast on 40 M, the best chance is on your evening long path. Unfortunately when I hear you on 40 LP you are working EU, EU, EU. You need to have EU QRX. Your statistics for NA are dismal.

My QSO's were in your on line log in 24 hrs and most mind blowing, confirmed on LoTW soon after that! Amazing!

Wednesday, 21 January 2015 17:34
1) Great job and thank you for going to Kish….for our benefit
2) Sorry to see that you guys are taking so much heat for atmospheric conditions over which you have no control. I’m amazed that some hams can’t make the connection between the poor numbers and your unavailability. It’s not that difficult to understand. Run a model with W6ELProp, for example and you will see that openings are scant, at best, for many of us.
3) As for the jammers, these are sad individuals who live by the motto, “If I can’t work them, no one else will.” This is most definitely one of the lowest forms of intelligence / logic. As Amateurs, competition is what we signed up for when we decided to put up our antennas and buy our radios to chase DX. Sometimes, due to many factors, we just don’t get through. I’m sorry to say that I haven’t gotten through yet (haven’t heard you well, yet), but I don’t have some nascent, bizarre desire to ruin the experience for others.
