Got the same here it Niagara, it did come back for a minute or so at 1:18 UTC with good signal but quickly gone again, I assume technical difficulties 

Been not having much luck lately with multipsk for SSTV, installed MMSSTV, first scan looks like a winner . Thanks for the show, always a good signal here in Niagara


still got it here at 0:50 UTC , sending a slow scan now

Sounded not unlike a CB channel, no callsigns and not fishermen as when signing off the one guys said he had to go wake the kids for school so I assume land based from a home.

Still got them here in Niagara and also on the NA5B web sdr at 19:50 UTC

One thing I remembered regretting was not being able to work Japan during that time. It's a lot harder for us East coast guys. I did have a Japan station call my number back to me, but then a pile up ensued. Im not complaining though. I have a rig on now im working on. Just heard a station down in the Caribbean with a big signal.

Worked a lot of Japan back around '89, from my QTH near Niagara Falls, had a 18 foot boom yagi with 4 elements I homebrewed, worked good. Also worked a Russian on Sakhalin Island just north of Japan , he QSL'ed first and the stamps and postmark checked out , he was legit. Got 3 of those cardboard fileboxes full in the basement in all the original envelopes. Here is a couple from a binder of Alfa Tango I have.

ALPHA TANGO. The biggest club I remembered and very coveted. From what I remember you had to turn it X amount of confirmed QSL's (Copying machine?) to prove you were an avid DX'r and therefore worthy of membership. There were several other large groups also. I'd have to look through old QSL cards.

We were all pretty serious DXer's in the AT Group, I had over 150 countries confirmed by direct mail QSL's if you can believe the stamps and postmarks in the late 80's/90's, quite a few were over 200 confirmed. Don't think we will ever see that many stations and countries on 11 ever again, even if conditions pick up.

26.285 Upper is another freq like 555

I recall the WAC out of the Netherlands used that as a call frequency 30 years ago, a guy called Bert ran the club. I was Alfa Tango in those days, 9AT113 ,  but often hung out down below , lots of New Zealand down there, it was their legal frequencies if I remember right.
