Hi William, 

I normally can work SM0RWO on 30 meters during the day time from your qth.
Maybe you can put a beacon on 10148 so we can check the logs to see if 
you are getting through. I can hear IS0GRB-3 here very well, but 
DK4XI-0 is too close to work. At the moment SM0RWO-9 is booming in here 
with a fish pole antenna (S9+). You should listen in the first 5 minutes of the 
hour for 
the beacons. You can check the on-line logs from PI4TUE and SM0RWO to see 
if your beacons make it (www.pskmail.it).

Try a callsign without a "/", and put the /EA5 in the status message... Send us 
the callsign 
you use so I can grep the server log :)
