I wondered same thing during my unsuccessful APE attempts. I
made only FIVE contacts in 3 days... Running QRP levels sure
didn't help but right now I only have a KX2 radio. I got bounced
around pretty good all day.
I guess by now everyone knows another new mode, FT8CALL, is out
and it will further siphon off PSK users.
But during my APE outing, I was not expecting the intrusion of
other modes into PSK territory.. I think the only mode I didn't
hear was SSTV, hi. One special event station in Illinois parked
on .072 and ran PSK125, Hellschreiber, and RTTY. I guess I sum
up by saying use it or lose it, lol.

I have been on everyday in 2018 and
made at least 1 PSK31 contact each day. I usually operate on
20m, sometime between 1500 - 2000 utc for about 1 hour. 20m
has been tough most of the year, but with persistence and
patience, complete QSOs are possible.
And yes it is conditions. We are
near the bottom of the Solar cycle and I predict that it
will be more difficult for us before it gets better.
Bottom line, hang in, keep trying
because in the end persistence and patience will payoff.
Hoping to contact You on PSK31

HI HI I wondered the
same, then I see one, then two, then none. My Halloween SWR
issues have returned off and on and 20 having been my best
operational band had been inoperable this week. I blame it
on conditions as there is nothing else I can do about it.
HI HI Makes it tough to work on the 365/366 for sure.

few days I have been on 20M and 40M to work some PSK31
QSOs, but guess what --- there is nobody on !! Has everyone
deserted this great mode or is it just me?/ Maybe my psk
radio isn't receiving well anymore :0)) Is it just me or
have others noticed the same thing?
