  9. Tony N5UD says:

    Listen for weak stations from Texas. Still trying to get a QSO with 9N from my mobile. I have heard 9N a few times this year, but can’t break the pile-ups. 20M seems to be best from here. I wonder if 30M CW would work near your sunrise ?

    73 and have some fun

  10. iz8ccw says:

    Hi Tony,
    we hope recived your signal form mobile station. Our focus is to have a more number of unique call in the Log.

    Please try long path to NA east coast on 12 meters 1330-1500 utc. Looks like best chances for a 12 meter contact here.
    Thanks & wish you much success.

  23. Bob Polansky, N6ET says:

    So far, a fantastic operation. Keep up the fine work!

  24. Hi,
    thanks for the first CW QSO today on 12m.
    Best wishes to the whole Crew,
    Wilf – dj6tk –

  25. John K7KB says:

    Thanks guys for my first QSO with Nepal and a new one with my new beam 🙂 I’ve worked you on SSB on 20M and 15M CW. I tried to get you on RTTY last night but I couldn’t break through the pileup. I’ll keep trying 🙂 You have a great operation, and I wish you safe travels when you go back home.

    John K7KB

  26. John K7KB says:

    I was finally able to get through on 20M RTTY last night. YAY! Thanks guys. Now my goal is to try and work you on a few more bands. 10 meters would be sweet, but I don’t think the MUF will support that to the West Coast yet. Perhaps when you go back in a couple of years 😀

  27. Jim says:

    Thank you for activating NEPAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    DJ2EI / HS0ZHK

  28. Paul N5PG says:

  31. Craig N6ED says:

    Great job on high bands to NA!!
    Please try 40m each morning 1330 to 1500 UTC for W6/7.



  33. Jim - W0EB says:

    Nice to see activity from Nepal again. Used to work Father Moran, 9N1MM many years ago when I was living in Japan.
    I hope the one QSO I made with 9N7MD on RTTY last evening was real and not a pirate station.
    Wishing you a very safe journey back to your homes.

    Jim – W0EB

  34. Juan Antonio says:

    Consulting the log of 9N7MD I see that I am not in 21 CW and 24 RTTY can say to me for that I am not in the log.?
    I did the contacts on the 23rd.
    Thank you very much.

  35. Fred Rollo says:

    Hi Guys,
    I made a contact with 7n9md on nov. 11,2011 at 2:25 Z on 17 meters ssb,however the call
    was incorretly logged as n0jbd, J rather than I, n0jbd rather than n0ibd. There is not an
    nojbd in the QRZ database! I want to ask you to please correct your log to show the correct
    callsign. Thanks to all of you for your effort!
    73 n0ibd Fred Rollo

  36. iz8ccw says:

    sorry dear but i think you worked a other station.. becouse 9n7md is not on air in date 11 november, we start our activity in date 13
    regards Ant
