A final report from your pilot station in Hawai'i. I had hundreds of e-mails from the Pacific area, North America and several from South America. Most of their e-mails were \"why don't they listen in the General and Advanced Class portions of the bands.\" I told them I'm several hundreds of miles from Swains and they should exercise patience as Japan, their main complaint, was geographically closer than the East Coast of No. America! I torted to them, that if they had taken and passed their Extra Class license they wouldn't have the band segment problem. Some answered that I was correct and they would study for their Extra Class exam! Only one disgruntled Amateur who took out his spleen on me and that was W4OI, a first class jerk. I could not find him in the DXCC listing. The bottom line, only one sour apple in the DX barrel! Let's do it again. Best of ALOHAs
Excellent operation! I worked you guys everywhere there was propagation between KH8 and VE1. There is nothing I would suggest to improve the DXpedition . . .you guys worked the pileups professionally and followed propagation well.
Now . . . find a way to put P5 on in a manner just as expertly as you did N8S!
My best wishes to all of you, and have a safe trip home.
