    Yeah then when you work them you give them your buddies callsign and tell them to listen for him calling, love those.

    Then when working by the numbers they always start with 1's and you know that by the time they get to the zero's if they don't skip over them and go to 1's again the probigation will have gotten you and not stand a chance so go to another band and hope.

    I love the DX stations that continually work over and over, multiple dupes, multiple bands/modes the same region, yet, other areas ask, please listen for NA and day after day, they work the same region that has a low need for it, bypassing the regions that need it overall for a new one..go figure...

    Or better yet, the ones that can't stick with the rules of the pile up...

    "Working 6's and 7's, west coast (which by the way, isn't really 7 land), up 5-10.....who's the Alpha Radio?.....QSL, K1AR (example), you are five nine...QRZ...Number 6/7...up 5-10".

    Instantly, the pile up goes "anyone anywhere".....mentality...why not?

    Miss the days of DJ6SI, SM0AGD, etc. Great ops....

    I feel your pain. Those of us with G5RV's should never give up. Several years ago when Wallis and Futuna was active, I heard them on 17 meters. I must have called for at least an hour. Finally I gave it one last try and BINGO. Even with 100 watts. We should always believe.

    Speaking of great ops, how about Bob MD0CCE. I'm sure he's still around. That guy is so relaxed and engaging. Works a pileup the way it should be done, and makes everyone feel like it was a personal QSO. Something to emulate.

    That seems long and complicated, I always thought it was "do unto others before they do unto you"

    Listen & Pounce

    (though it's really Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen
    listen, listen, listen, listen some more & Pounce)

    How about when the DX is calling (for example) 9 calls only and the guy across town from you is all of a sudden "portable 9"?
    I have heard that several times through the years.

    .... and in 95% of those, probably the heavy lifting was on the other end ;)

    Unless you get to the point where you are only chasing 2-way QRP QSOs!
    I worked 1000 QRP ARCI members on CW (initials, just like those EMEers)
    2x WAS and WAC (suitably endorsed!) When I got to 50 countries confirmed 2XQRP, getting new ones got to be really hard, so I'm doing easier stuff like chasing xx9e from New Engand :rolleyes:
