5A7A on 40 Meter Right Now
5A7A, the Libyan DXpedition is on 7.179.40 MHz simplex right now and can
be heard in South Texas. BUT, it is the Mother of All Pileups. This is
a good example of how NOT to work rare DX. But these guys will go away,
somewhat, over the next few days and will a little patience you will be
able to work Libya with 100 watts after they get tired of it. Maybe not
on 40, but on one or more other bands.
See the 5A7A website here: http://5a7a.gmxhome.de/
Keep your DX Cluster connection on and watch for 5A7A spots. If you
