    I always do that, except if the DX is listening up 5 I usually say 'He's listening up 10'.

    No reason to increase the competition. :)

    I kind of enjoy seeing the reaction when a weak DX station on FT8 is calling around 2000kHz, and I send my call on 300 kHz, for example. People are learning, but in the early days of FT8 split, it was great fun.:cool:

    I have spotted VK9MA several times both on CW and SSB but have not heard a peep. Conditions have been pretty poor with lousy propagation to the left coast. I barely heard one op on 40 meters on CW but was unable to complete a contact.

    I'm still to see them once on the waterfall. FT8 only here.

    Well stated N9NY, other morning in the early hours I was attempting to work VK9MA on 40 phone, got a contact, but no thanks to a total moron transmitting the last two letters of my call on the VK9's frequency. What pleasure did this person obtain, I ignored them and got my contact.

    Congrats on the catch! It has been my experience to never acknowledge the village idiots at all, anywhere.

    I think it has to do with the phase of the Moon.

    I think it has to do with the phase of their brain;)

    I believe that the majority of the transmissions on the DX's frequency are accidental screwups in the process of setting the rig up for split operation, rather that ignorance of what "up" means. The ones that get me are the ones who keep calling, over and over in spite of the chorus of "UPs" they have generated. I heard one the other day that kept it up for at least an hour. Maybe we need a Hall of Shame listing those guys!
