    I made the mistake of calling TN7R on 20m SSB without my SPLIT button engaged... I was graciously greeted with a chorus of UPs topped with a LID!

    I took the opportunity to put my amateur Photoshop skills to use and prepare a teaching aid:

    A reminder for us all that when we hear someone running without split to give them some grace - the QRM from a mistaken call without split is insignificant when compared to the cacophony of 100 operators yelling 'UP'.

    have i mentioned how much i LOATHE SSB pileups? Hmm? Have I?

    Last night on CW I worked XR0YD, 3c0w, TY7C, TN5R, PJ5/SP2GCj.... all through pileups... but I'll be damned if I can get through to the same stations on SSB!

    There are two kinds of DXers: those who have called on the DX frequency, and those who will.
