I had been listening for them for a while on 160M but poor conditions prevented me from attempting to QSO them until tonight when they had workable signals.

It took me several hours to make it into their log, I believe they are fighting a very high noise level at their location, but the Arctic King came through as usual.

As the recording shows, signals were weak, the rate was slow and the pile up was large.
