  • 04:00GMT is 04:00 GMT, the days do not matter, it is the time of the 24 hour day.
  • The broadcasts are scheduled at 04:00GMT, which translates to 4:00 pm island time(+12 hours).
  • 4:00pm island time is going to be 11:00 pm CDT (Texas), 12:00 midnight EDT, and since I guess forum time appears to be on MDT, it would be 10:00 pm forum time.

That sounds right to me.

You can set your "Forum Time" in your personal preferences.  I have done it, so it is doable.  Our server is in Denver, I believe, so if you do not override the default, you see MDT.
LTM,

Bob

I'm listening in, but can only hear the replies to Lee so far. It's still exciting!

edit to clarify-- I had submitted a report to the logbook of the site I was listening through, thinking I was only picking up the replies. The logbook shows Central Kiribati as the point of origin, so it seems I *did* hear Lee for a bit!

I'm hearing bits and pieces via http://livehams.com:8181/ on 14280.00.  I could hear Denver working Lee, but not Lee.

0016 EDT (12:16 AM).

Heard a few words earlier--Gardner and Nikumaroro.

Enough for tonight!

I believe he's operating split.
Lee is transmitting on 14290 and listening on 14280

I've been monitoring both the LiveHams site as well as one in NJ. I can hear Lee better on the NJ site.

Hey Bob...I have to laugh...I thought all this time that this guy was being a nuisance. Cause he kept repeating and repeating and I was thinking who is this dude. I heard him better last night than I did tonight! But, we do know now we can hear him! Like I said last night I heard the Denver tower call out his call sign, but then you couldn't hear him. I was having issues tonight with online signal wasnt the best. I heard the North Pole better than I did the boys in Sacremento California!

Thanks, Bob! I had much better luck with the site you suggested and was able to hear Lee. A bit scratchy (not sure that's the term) but I could pick up enough to know it was him. Really exciting!
