I'm at work and not QRV, but I had no problem copying them with a single 12 el. yagi leaned again the chair when they did the test a couple of weeks ago, and most everyone else gave them good reports.  At the time, they were running 50w, a barefoot Kenwood TS-2000.  They must have changed rigs if now they only have 20w.  And something else must be wrong, because even folks with big antennas are having trouble copying them (more so than the 50w vs. 20w would suggest).

There's a live feed at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/kp4ao-eme

Good luck and 73,
