Some of those call signs look VERY familiar after watching Bill’s show 🙂
Sorry! Meant to also say great cartoon! Wish so much that I could stand in line too for a helping, but conditions are terrible at this QTH…
Thank you for the compliment Jan, better luck in the remaining days I hope! 73 de Jeff K1NSS
Still haven’t heard a peep the whole time, still waiting
in this valley of tears it was very difficult to log on compliments and thanks
I’ve not been able to hear you on any bands since the beginning of the Dxpedition. We’ve tried hard but no copy.
Will keep trying ’til the last day.

Wow – that is so cool!! Thank you for the honor of including me in that amazing artwork!!! And thanks for the QSOs!

Love the cartoon, but can you imagine the scene with some SE & E European prefixes on the caps, there’d be one big melee around an upturned soup pot with feathers flying everywhere 🙂
Good work guys, but I can echo the leaving 10m a bit too early.
Thank you for the good word and funny comments Andy! Yes, this orderly dispensing of New One Soup may not exactly be Cartoon vérité, but think of it as a snapshot in time when ham radio’s Better Angels were not on coffee break and ionospherically arrayed in full riot gear, such that everyone was curiously just getting along. 73 de Jeff K1NSS
Reblogged this on Katydid's Creations and commented:
Ham radio is alive and well….and at the bottom of the earth near Antarctica on Heard Island! I was lucky enough to talk to the guys down there, once with my voice and once using Morse Code. My callsign WY7YL is in this original artwork by Jeff, K1NSS – a talented ham and artist!
Thank you very much Katie, the cartoon was a collaboration with KY6R and it was our pleasure to place your call in the mix…a little bird told us of your good fortune! 73 Jeff K1NSS
Well thanks Jeff, it sure made my day!! I’d love to know if you will be making that artwork available for sale – that would be a great piece to hang in our shack! (even if it didn’t have my callsign in it)
Got to hear you first. No phone here in central NA. You’ve got to do some phone QSOs. You have been inaudible here at KB9WQJ.
Very neat idea, and I am honored to be in the log and also shown as a “Penguin” in line for “soup”.
A tip of the Hat, to all involved with the DXpedition and the support for it, from so many folks.
Great Drawing by the talented Jeff Murray K1NSS. 🙂
Lee, many TNX from Rich and me! 73 Jeff K1NSS
Thanks for being there for us. Unfortunately we haven’t been able to hear you in central Mexico perhaps you should try 40M SSB around 2:00-4:00 UTC
Best 73’s de XE1AC
I have been holding of to make a QSO on a band I need which is 10, 12 and 160. Thought I had a QSO on 12 but nada so have been trying every morning without fail. A couple others up here need it so will continue.
In the meantime just so I can get your card I am going to work you on a band I do not need. Hope I don’t beat out one of the bingo players.
Heard you guys for a brief moment last week and nothing since. Propagation hasn’t been good for me in SE USA. I’m hoping for just one 20m SSB QSO. KU4BP
Ive been listening from Central Arkansas from day 1 and not one peep. Most bands are not working for me im sure most use beams and stuff my little Dipole not getting it done will listen more to see where you guys pop up…..Thanks for doing this DXpedition.

Zero Zip Nada in Southern Nevada. It’s a shame that Spit Bay didn’t work out. Lots of disappointed W6/W7’s…. Assuming I Live into my 80’s hopefully the next expedition will operate from Spit since the last two haven’t.
Another “Rubber Duckie” DXpedition from an “UnHeard” location. I’d be prepared to donate some propagation charts and a beam or two to improve the situation!
After over a week of just trying to hear VK0EK the magic came together on April 2 at 0511z they were actually 589 on my
TS-130V’s S meter & my 19 yr dream came true working Heard Is. for # 344 QRP, Tnx team Dan WG5G/QRP.
