K5P zzzzzzzzz

5259kHz Heard ZS6EZ  and ZS4TX  good signal in CW
had to be split I txed at 5359 +100kHz  seemed a logic choice but no QSO
I can only receive DX  lately

VP8STI   was relative easy to work at 30 40 and 80 yesterday night not strong huge pile
 fb operator, good operators do not attract that much lids
Heard very weak at 160m  had to QRT 01:30 to late for me

K5P  has been a waste of time and disappointing experience.
Is it the Chinese Radar ?

Now added 30m   to  dipole 30 60 80m good matching on 3 bands

1700Z prime time grey line   80m  Palmyra  K5P  (KH5)
but  silence
They where not allowed to stay on the island at night.. that means almost no window to EU for low bands.  Birds rules like we have in our wad coast area nothing is allowed.

propagation was not bad at all   aurora reported a good chance for Aurora enhanced propagation
as thats been observed at 80 and 160  many times during or after Auroral disturbance at SS

20160120 1710   3507.5 CW   PA0O         599  XW4ZW           599                
20160120 1726   3502.1 CW   PA0O         549  ZL2AGY          579 Tony              

With all the D-QRM a pile up to EU not a pleasure
As soon as K5P is spotted or already before cops and D-QRM  make copy of the weak signals
almost impossible.
And why calling for specific zone JA at the wrong time. Why not just calling for any? if the knowledge of propagation is poor?
