Steve, if you want to try qrp to qrp, that would be fun. I'm back in town next week, love to try it.

text me at 571-225-6180 with a head's up if you want to try. I've had great success doing most all the digital modes with my qrp uBITX radio to other QRP's.  Of course, a good antenna really helps us lower power wieners.

ZL7 is Chatham Island.
There have been numerous dx-peditions there, and according to Club Log, it's #76 on the most wanted DXCC list. It may be rated higher or lower on other lists. I don't know.
From Apr. 2004 until Nov. 2016, I've logged 5 separate dx-peditions, and 12 confirmed Q's via LotW. to Chatham.
Sadly, no bpsk31. I don't even know if any of the dx-peditions did any digital at all.
I need Hole 13 also. Any volunteers for a road trip? :-)

Has anyone had any contact with ZL7DX?  Is there an Email I could mail them.  I have needed Hole 13 since the day golf was
created and since the South Pole Ham station hasnt been online the only other option is ZL7.

Let me know. Im desperate to finish the golf holes.  Very few have done it.

Yep, I sure remember that one.  I corresponded with him prior to the DXpedition and waited intently for the opening.  I think that it was the 2nd or 3rd day that I got him.  And yes, he pulled up stakes early.  I can't remember the reason, but it may have been wx or logistical issues.

Hole 13 is a toughie due to the lack of PSK operators as well as prop.

Good Luck!  And let us know if you get anything working.  I too need only Hole 13 to complete Golf.  I also need Antarctica and haven't heard anything about PSK31 from there in a long long time.

Chatham Island was activated by ZL2DX in 2017 and was supposed to be there for until 2020. I only worked one PSK31 station there was ZL7LC (ZL1LC ,an 070 member) back in 2015. He was on a mini DXpedition PSK31 only. Others may have been there, but suspect they operated SSB/CW/RTTY or FT mode. Not aware of anyone else on ZL7.

I just got my FT817 setup with new computer. I am using a small Lenova Thinkpad for portable and QRP.
I am calling CQ on 40 Meters right now if anyone is around. Burning ionosphere with 5 watts if anyone is around. Like to see if soundcard settings are all good.

Had a short exchange with Marco, EA8AQV, from the Canary Islands on 20M.  Around 72.3.  IOTA #AF-004

Was weak but able to get a qso with my 10 watts.  

Good luck to all.  Hope the band conditions stay good.

Milt and all ...

Used to send $2 bills with QSL requests for return postage. Never got the same response I got with $1 bills... think people in other parts of world thought they were counterfeit currency.

With LoTW, thankfully those days are over for the most part. Still get a few QSLs via Bureau from 80's which is fine with me ...better late than never !
