That may have been the case.  Only need 3 more to complete DXCC on any mode : Scarborough Reef, DPRK and Bouvet Is.  Chances of them showing up on SSB/CW  ae very slim.

There are a number of DXpeditions out there that use FT8 in "Fox/Hound" mode on non-standard frequencies. I know that one of them parked itself around the 40m SKCC frequency at 7.056MHz. What I usually do if something like this happens is to fire up WSJT-X and let it decode the signals to see what's going on. I did not see the activity on 14.070, so I missed out, maybe I could have gotten some rare DX :)

Over the past couple of years, there has been the occasional DX station that popped up on 14.070 FT8 and once that was announced on the internet, it quickly drew in the DXers to 14.070.  14.070 is not usually on any listing for FT8 operation.  I checked a couple of spotting sites this morning and there were no FT8 spots on 14.070.  Next time you see that, maybe switch to FT8 mode and decode the callsign(s) to see what is going on.

Re: 20m this morning

20m this morning had great propagation this morning as the FT signals were from 14070 to 14072 and there were about 15 - 20 of them.  Looked like an infestation of fleas and they knocked out a strong German station I was about to call.

 

Only other thing it might have been were spurs from another frequency, but doubtful with FT-1000MP.  Might have been a freak opening for me to Europe.  

 

After I posted , about 15 minutes later band was back to business as usual.

CONGRATS to John, KC3FL who has completed his 366 level Calendar award with his upload today. 

This is also a Double-Whammie for John who notched IOTA 50 at the same time. 
 
Members, keep you eyes on the next up October need dates:
 
K5KHK (5) – 10/29
(*) Total dates needed
Speaking of Leap Day, 6 members need only 2/29: F8BFU, KE0GHU, M5PLY, SA7BXU, WB8YXF and WM4B. Of our 2,708 members, only 43 have achieved 366.
 
To see what dates you need, upload your full log and check the "Online Endorsement Checker". In the "In Progress" section, click on "Target" for the 360 category and a list of needed dates will show. If you have a problem seeing that, please just let me know.
 
I have listed only the folks who are getting very close (within 20 dates). I am sure there are many more who need October dates, also. Let’s make 366 happen for as many as you can.
 
73,
Stan

Some of the FT8 users  have their software set up to announce a new

I remember a few years ago when 10m was open a lot, I'd hear a taxi

service around 28.070.
