    I saw D68CCC spotted on 12m CW today, and I need D68CCC on 12m CW.

    I adjusted my tuners (not on the DX transmit or listening frequencies), went to the spotted frequency, and set to split mode.

    Yessiree, there was the pileup. Good!:) I L - I - S - T - E - N - E - D on the DX transmit frequency for 30 or 40 seconds. Hmmmm, that's funny (funny - unusual, not funny - ha-ha). I wonder why D68CCC just sent "VP6R up"? Maybe that ain't really D68CCC:eek:.

    I saw a spot this morning which seemed to indicate that they were both on the same frequency, but I thought it was 18069. Could be my 73 year old memory is faulty though.

    Maybe they should have listened so as not to transmit it on top of the other.

    Spots are often wrong. Saw one today with the wrong callsign. I’ll bet a lot of guys just logged it that way without listening to make sure first.

    I have indeed noticed a trend from the "Up Police" who just "work the guy" rather than badger him call after call with "Up Up Up" that goes ignored - they just pretend to be the DX, give out a report, and say TU. They do NOT identify. Just "W27XXX 599 TU"

    Wrong? Sure it is - but it does make me laugh a little.... when the guy running simplex finds out he never actually worked the DX :eek::D

    I've heard that plenty of times. If the station who is clueless and ignores the up up finally hears an "up police officer" work him, he'll then give his 599 tu and disappear.. getting rid the person. I have to chuckle a bit..
